The pink-haired performer gained a standing ovation after a stage invader interrupted her performance.
So-called “Dr ACactivism” grabbed the microphone off her and proceeded to shout about his political agenda.
Thankfully, the man was caught by security and dragged off stage before SuRie continued with her song.
The man has previously disrupted live broadcasts, having stormed The Voice final and the National Television Awards.
She was praised on the night for her stocisim in the face of the security breach.
And she was helped along by the crowd, who were keen to lift SuRie’s spirits.
Although many begged her to replay her performance, the singer chose not to, despite being offered the chance to.
And unfortuntely, SuRie came in 24th place at the end of the night.
Today, SuRie opened up on her experience as she gave her first live interview since the contest.

She revealed she was left with minor injuries following the ordeal.
This Morning hosts, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, were quick to congratulate SuRie on her stoicism throughout.
Holly, 37, explained: “The lyric, ‘don’t give up’ and I mean you didn’t… I’m so sorry.”
SuRie went on to detail how she didn’t know he was on stage until he was right by her face trying to get the microphone off her.
“There wasn’t any time to feel fear – he was suddenly there and security was on him as quick as he was on me.
“He only got the mic for a few seconds,” she said.
SuRie continued: “I turned back and saw the mic on the floor and thought, ‘That’s mine! I’m finishing this’.
“There’s a couple of bruises on my arm where he wrestled the mic off me, and on my shoulder where he came in.”
Meanwhile, SuRie explained how she didn’t feel the need to performa again, despite being offered the chance.
“The lyrics put on a new meaning afterwards,” the singer explained.
