The samba school Vai-Vai has been crowned champion of the São Paulo 2015 Carnival, with a tribute to the singer Elis Regina.

Regina died 33 years ago.

The group finished on 269.9 points out of a possible 270.

Vai-Vai had not won since 2011, when they triumphed with a tribute to the pianist and conductor João Carlos Martins, mixing samba with classical music.

This is the 15th such victory.

Mocidade Alegre finished in second place, with a tribute to the actress Marília Pêra.

The judging at the Rio Carnival will take place on Wednesday (18).
