Leicestershire's Molly Smitten`Downes at the Eurovhsion

final singer to perform last night, and hopes were high Molly could end

the Universe. # Power to the people. But it wasn't to be. Molly got just

:00:56.:00:59.

40 points, and finished 17th out of 26. Not that it dampened her

:01:00.:01:02.

family's spirits. It was grdat. I mean, obviously we're a bit

:01:03.:01:05.

disappointed but we've all enjoyed it thoroughly, it's been a great

:01:06.:01:09.

night. Two great nights. Back home in Rothley, support for

:01:10.:01:13.

Molly has been as strong as ever. Particularly at the pub where she

:01:14.:01:16.

used to work. I thought Molly did absolutely fantastically well, I

:01:17.:01:19.

mean there was a couple of people here I think with lumps in their

:01:20.:01:23.

throat watching her. I don't think she could have done any better, she

:01:24.:01:27.

did us really proud. I think with the scoring people were probably a

:01:28.:01:29.

little bit disappointed, but probably not surprised given the

:01:30.:01:32.

Eurovision voting in the past. I would have had my money on her to

:01:33.:01:36.

win. I thought she was superb. She was really good, she should have

:01:37.:01:40.

won. There was lots of mad stuff, but she wasn't mad enough and.. She

:01:41.:01:44.

was just nice, you know. And did what we usually do which is come

:01:45.:01:47.

two`thirds of the way down. In true Eurovision style, the

:01:48.:01:50.

competition was eventually won by a bearded drag queen from Austria. So,

:01:51.:01:56.

as Eurovision fever subsides, excitement is building again for

:01:57.:01:59.

Molly, as she gets ready to fulfil a lifelong dream of performing at
