Eurovision fans in the country say that the broadcaster censored O'Shaughnessy's performance in its entirety.

The broadcaster has been barred from televising the Eurovision Song Contest after censoring two performances during Tuesday's semi-final.

The entry featured interpretive dancers Kevin O'Dwyer and Alan McGrath re-enacting a same-sex love story, earning praise from audience members.

Mango TV chose to censor the performance, the channel is run by Hunan TV - China's second largest broadcaster and has been showing Eurovision in China since 2015.
