Who won Eurovision 2021?
The long-awaited Eurovision 2021 returned tonight after a two-year hiatus.
Italy were crowned the winner and James Newman for the United Kingdom unfortunately did not get any points.
Who won Eurovision 2021?
Måneskin – Italy
The winner of the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest was Måneskin, an Italian rock band, who started performing on the streets of Rome.
The Zitti E Buoni group’s track scored 524 points, while the UK came last for the second year in a row, with zero points.
France came second and Switzerland third.
Måneskin is made up of vocalist Damiano, bassist Victoria, guitarist Thomas and Ethan on drums and their name is the Danish word for “moonlight” – since Victoria is from Denmark.
But their victory did not come without a hitch – first of all, singer Damiano accidentally slit his pants during this energetic winner’s performance.
And not in a non-obvious way – just in the crotch, front and center.
He was then forced to deny taking cocaine live on TV after appearing to lean over the table and do a snorting action,
Måneskin lit up the stage with their shirtless punk-funk rock which they sang in their native language.
It was Italy’s third Eurovision victory and its first since 1990.
The group achieved national recognition during the eleventh season of X Factor Italia in 2017.
So far they have collected seventeen platinum records and six gold records in Italy.
Who won Eurovision 2019?
The winner of Eurovision, which was held on May 18, 2019, was Duncan Laurence for the Netherlands.
His song Arcade garnered 492 points – and it was the first time his country had been in the lead in 44 years.
Italy came in second (465 points), with Russia edging Switzerland by nine points to take third place.
The United Kingdom, which this year would have been represented by James Newman, finished in last place.

What does the winner of Eurovision get?
According to Eurovision, “the winner will perform again and take home the iconic glass microphone trophy.
“The winning country will traditionally have the honor of hosting the next Eurovision Song Contest.”
Oddly, there is no cash prize for winning – just the honor of the title.
