A Brazilian dancer has been crowned the Eurovision Song Contest’s first ever champion.
Joao Miguel Vitor, 22, won his fifth Eurovision crown on Monday after winning a competition he had been working on for two years.
The award is a record for the competition, which is run by the Eurodance Academy in Denmark, and was announced at a ceremony in the city of Vitor do Oro in Sao Paulo.
He won the title with his dance moves “Ney da Pintura” and “Casa de la Pas”, the song that he performed in 2015 with the Brazilian pop group Celine Dion.
“The last couple of years I’ve been working with a lot of dancers and they’ve helped me a lot in my career,” Vitor said.
“I’ve been in Brazil for five years and I’ve always tried to get better and better.
I’m very happy with the results.”
The Portuguese born Vitor won the competition in 2015, having won the crown at the Eurostar Awards in 2014.
In 2016, he won the Eurovaudeville Song Contest, a competition hosted by BBC Two, where he won a prize of $1 million.
He will compete in the Eurogroup competition, a new category of Eurovision that includes songs from around the world.
