The Eurovision 2021 final took the beloved song contest to a whole other level. We’re used to the awkward moments, the bizarre performances and the fun campness of it all, but what we didn’t expect was the abundance of genuinely great tunes – and how hard it would be to crown only one of them the winner.

In the end, it was Italy‘s Måneskin who claimed the glass trophy, smashing the public vote and ending at the top of the scoreboard. Unsurprising, not just because Zitti E Buoni turned out to be the glam rock anthem we didn’t know we needed, but because their revealing leather outfits rocked as much as the track.

The Eurovision 2021 winners had some tough competition, however, with both France and Switzerland looking like they might claim the top spot at various points.

Fan favourites Iceland managed to come in fourth, despite Daði & Gagnamagnið not being able to perform live due to a member of the band testing positive for coronavirus.

With last year’s competition being cancelled, it was obvious most of the acts had taken the year to fine-tune their entries. Sadly but perhaps unsurprisingly giving the calibre of the night’s performances, the UK’s James Newman didn’t end up lighting up the scoreboard with Embers, which scored zero points from both the jury and the public vote.

Even Germany, whose song was compared to Marmite “if everybody hated Marmite” by Graham Norton, did better. Though not by much, as they finished with three points.

And so the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 will be held in Italy after Måneskin’s incredible win.

We may have had to wait two years for this Eurovision due to last year’s planned event falling victim to the pandemic but it was certainly a joy to have it back on our screens. Here’s hoping it’s only one year until the next one.

The Eurovision final airs Saturday at 8pm on BBC One. If you’re looking for more to watch, check out our TV Guide. Visit our Entertainment hub for all the latest news.
