One of the UK’s five Eurovision judges has described Poland’s performance as being ‘two boobs too far’.

Soprano and Eurovision judge Laura Wright dismissed the risqué performance as ‘soft porn’.

Poland’s Donatan & Cleo’s song ‘My Slowianie (We Are Slavic)’ was the hot subject on social media network Twitter as the all-female band danced provocatively in traditional costume.

The raunchy performance involved milkmaids sitting astride butter churners in busty traditional dresses.

The show received the most votes from the UK public, but was ranked bottom by the jury vote.

"I'd say it was soft porn. It was two boobs too far for me," Laura told Metro.

"I was shocked to see something like that on a family show.

“It's obvious why their performance has gone down well but that makes me really sad from a woman's perspective."

Wright admitted you could see the ‘male appeal’, but wasn’t impressed.

"You could see the obvious male appeal but there was no attention paid to the actual song and it is a song contest - it's not supposed to be about buxom ladies washing their intimates on stage,” she said.

"I don't agree with that and I think it's a real shame because the standard generally was high, and this stuck out for the wrong reasons."

Meanwhile, the competition was won by Austria’s Conchita Wurst and her Bond-like tune ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’. The performance garnered a whopping 290 points.

"This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom," Wurst said on her victory.

"You know who you are - we are unity and we are unstoppable."

Ireland’s entry Can-linn feat Kasey Smith failed to qualify in the semi-finals.
