Ralf on his way home... as true star!

Dutch commentator Sipke-Jan Bousema organised a small farewell party in the lobby of the delegation's hotel, to thank all who worked so hard for this Junior Eurovision Song Contest victory. Earlier, he told JuniorEurovision.tv: "After 34 years, we finally won a Eurovision event! I'm so proud of everyone who put so much work into this."

Update: Hundreds of fans were waiting for Ralf in Amsterdam, where he arrived around 20:00 local time. Check out the video below (courtesy of RTL Nieuws):

The JuniorEurovision.tv team is also heading back home. Thank you for being with us again and see you next year in Minsk, Belarus, for the 8th Junior Eurovision Song Contest, or in Oslo, Norway, for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest!
