Hello, I'm Ayshah and this is Newsround.
On the way...
The quiet song that won Eurovision,
Man City becoming Women's FA Cup champions
and rare dragon ice spotted in the Antarctic.
Eurovision didn't disappoint last night with glitz, glamour,
unusual outfits and funny dancing, but the song that won
was surprisingly simple.
Here's how it all went down.
The 62nd Eurovision Song contest did not disappoint for weird and
Italy's break dancing gorilla was one of the
stranger performances of the night.
Azerbaijan literally took it to another level with this
man dressed as a horse.
Yodelling from Romania.
# Yodel-ei! #
And Swedish treadmills kept the crowd dancing.
But it was Portugal who took the title, winning
Eurovision for the first time ever.
The song performed by Salvador Sobral was simple
and written by his sister.
I think this could be a victory for music,
with people that make music that actually means something.
Music is not fireworks, music is feeling.
So let's try to change this and bring music back
which is really is what matters.
Portuguese Eurovision fans were over the moon.
We deserved it.
It will be amazing.
It is like a dream come true.
# I will never give up on you... #
The UK came 15th with Lucie Jones' power ballad Never Give Up On You,
the best British result in six years.
# The oceans crash.... #
I just didn't want to come last, so actually, I did really well.
All in all, it has been another successful year for Eurovision.
We would give it douze points.
From Ukraine to France because there been a big ceremony in Paris
for their new President Emmanuel Macron.
It's the official start of him taking on the job.
It's all happened at the Elysee Palace, with invited
guests including Macron's family.
He's one of the youngest Presidents France has
had, at the age of 39.
Manchester City have won the Women's FA Cup for the first time.
City's women beat Birmingham 4-1 at Wembley Stadium.
The goals came from Lucy Bronze, Izzy Christiansen,
Carli Lloyd and Jill Scott.
Captain Steph Houghton is delighted.
What an amazing day.
I do not think it will sink in for a few days yet,
but obviously I dreamed of...
You dream of playing at Wembley, you dream of representing
Manchester City, you dream of captaining a team
and lifting the FA Cup, so to say that and have
all my family there and my boyfriend there
is definitely a special moment.
To this massive ship, which is on its first-ever voyage.
It's sailed all the way from South East Asia and has now
arrived at Southampton, here in the UK.
Ricky's got this.
The MOL Triumph.
At 400 metres long, 58.8 metres wide, and 32.8 metres high,
the Triumph is the biggest ship ever to dock in a UK port.
So just how big is it?
This is what it would look like sat behind a normal house.
In fact, you can stack seven double-decker buses
on top of each other, and they still would not be as tall.
The deck is about as big as three football pitches, and it is so long,
even Usain Bolt would take 45 seconds to run it from
one end to the other.
But why so big?
The Triumph can carry more than 20,000 containers at once,
which means it can deliver a lot of goods to the UK all in one go.
As well as being super efficient, it is more environmentally friendly.
The ship's maker says it causes less pollution than smaller boats.
So this must be the biggest ship ever, right?
It has already been knocked down to second place,
and we can expect lots more super ships on the way.
OK, take a close look at this.
It's ice, but not as you've ever seen it before.
It's a massive sheet of ice that looks just like a dragon's scales.
When you think of dragons, you probably think of hot,
fire breathing and sharp teeth.
But what about freezing cold ice?
Well, some scientists on a research trip to Antarctica have
spotted dragon-like ice, a rare type of sea ice that has not
been seen in ten years.
Sounds cool, but how did it all happen?
Well, winds in the Antarctic can be extremely powerful,
sometimes with the same force as a hurricane, and they are strong
enough to pick up the ice on the surface as it freezes.
This lets the cold air reach the water below, that also freezes,
forming other layers of ice underneath.
An intense amount of sea ice is being formed,
in part due to the freezing temperatures, but mostly due
to the very strong winds.
These winds have the effect of pushing away the new sea ice.
And when we can see layer upon layer of ice lying
on top of each other, it creates a bumpy, scale-like
pattern, like the skin of a dragon.
The scientists who spotted it this time are calling
the discovery "bizarre", but we think it is
That's all from the weekend team.
Newsround's back tomorrow at 7:40.
