Italy Wins The Eurovision Song Contest 2021, Work on 2022 Begins For RAI “In The Morning”

It was a tense and groundbreaking result reveal, but we have our winners: it’s Måneskin from Italy “Zitti e buoni”!

26 countries took part in the Grand Final of the world’s largest live music event, hosted by Dutch EBU Members NPO, NOS and AVROTROS on 23 May in Rotterdam. 

Måneskin wrote the winning song which finished the night with 524 points, 25 points ahead of 2nd placed France represented by Barbara Pravi singing “Voila”. Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears with “Tout l’Univers”  finished in third place. Following the performances of the 26 Grand Finalists, the results of the juries in the 39 participating nations who voted on Friday’s dress rehearsal were given out leaving Switzerland in the lead. 

The winners held a press conference following their win.

‘We’re four friends playing the music we love, ‘ said lead singer Damiano when asked what had gone through their mind when they realised they’d won the Eurovision Song Contest. ‘All our hard work finally made sense.’

The band confirmed a tour starting in December and more new music. But ‘no more musical competitions for a while’ (they’ve now competed in X FactorSanremo and Eurovision), added lead singer Damiano. ‘It’s too much anxiety,’ he said.

To wrap up the press conference, Eurovision Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl congratulated Måneskin on their win, told them they were forever in the history books and handed Italian broadcasters RAI their Eurovision welcome pack – the journey of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 would begin in the morning.
