The UK entry to Eurovision has been interrupted at Eurovision.
A man ran on stage and stole the microphone, followed shortly by several security guards. He has swiftly pulled away.
A Gay Star News source at the event says the protester managed to say: ‘For the Nazis of the UK media we want freedom.’
SuRie whose song ‘Storm’ carries the lyrics ‘I still believe in chasing rainbows’, continued moments later.

In response, the crowd gave the performer her song with a huge standing ovation.
The protester shouted an in-audible comment, which many on social media have already questioned whether he shouted the word Nazis.
The BBC Eurovision twitter account has since confirmed SuRue is OK. Gay BBC presenter Graham Norton has also since applauded the performer adding ‘she must have been terrified.’

An unscheduled green room interview took place after the invasion, before Serbia and the event continued as scheduled.
Early reports from sources backstage at Eurovision told Gay Stars News the UK would perform again as the final performance of the night.
However, Graham Norton announced to the BBC Eurovision viewers that SuRie declined the offer.
