The winner of West End Eurovision was announced on the weekend, with The Phantom of the Opera taking home a trophy for the second year in a row.

The cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber's show celebrated with Graham Norton and 1998 Israeli Eurovision winner Dana International at the event, which took place at the Adelphi Theatre. Phantom of the Opera performed "Grande Amore" and earned 88 votes from both voting judges from the seven competing shows and text votes by the audience at the Adelphi Theatre.

The National Theatre's production of Follies came second. It is the first time in the event's history that the top prize has been won by the same show in successive years.

The Phantom of the Opera was also awarded the Outstanding Gorgeousness prize, judged by Fly Davis and Jamie Campbell.
