THE UK's Eurovision dreams were left in disarray after a stage invader burst on stage to upset SuRie's performance.
Here's everything you need to know about what happened SuRie's Eurovision performance, who the intruder was and how the situation was handled…
What happened during SuRie's Eurovision 2018 performance?
A stage invader burst on stage and grabbed the microphone from SuRie during her performance for the United Kingdom.
As the singer launched into her second chorus, a stage invader burst on stage and interrupted the song.
SuRie was stunned as the heckler started shouting.
There was Twitter speculation initially that the intruder was Spanish streaker Jimmy Jump.
However, later it appeared he had been identified as DrACactivism – who previously interrupted The Voice and the NTAs.
The intruder was placed in police custody.
How was it handled?
Graham Norton said: "She was doing a brilliant job anyway, we’re not sure what is going to happen, whether will get an opportunity to perform again, I just don’t know."
After her performance, the presenters did an impromptu chat with other performers while TV bosses decided if SuRie would perform again.
A shocked Graham continued: "She coped so well, I'm in awe of her that she carried on and used it to her advantage in her performance."
Graham later revealed that the Eurovision bosses had offered SuRie the chance to perform again – but that she had declined.
SuRie broke her silence on the incident, speaking after the event and telling her fans: "Well, I've always said anything can happen at Eurovision."
She later added: "I've been told the security agent who intervened last night is ok and thank goodness for that."
Who is Dr ACactivism?
Dr ACactivism is an activist who interrupted Dermot O'Leary at the National Television Awards this year and is speculated to be the Eurovision 2018 stage invader.
In April 2017, the wannabe rapper was revealed as the intruder who stormed the stage during the final of The Voice.
He claimed that security guards almost broke his neck as he stormed the stage during the closing moments of the telly talent show.
The activist also recently penned the e-book Ten Original Qualities That One Needs to Change The World: Art, Ideas and Creativity.
