The main theme of Eurovision 2014 was Eurovision History.
But it also had two smaller themes.
1) The Danish hosts were trying to be a little creepy as a nod to Danish actors always being hired to play villains in American and English films and TV. That was the reason behind the weird stalker segment and shooting fireworks at the commentators.
2) They acknowledged that Eurovision is very popular among gays, which is why it had one female host and two males who were being very *ahem* friendly with each other.
So could it be more fitting that a drag queen who sang a James Bond themed song won?
America in the background is because The Netherlands' song was about as American as Eurovision will allow.
Overall there were quite a few good songs this year, so I encourage you to go look for them.
