Switzerland has won the 68th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest thanks to Nemo and the song ‘The Code’, which has obtained a total of 591 points. Spain, represented by Nebulossa and her ‘Zorra’, has obtained 22nd position with 30 points.

The second position in the contest went to Croatia and the third to Ukraine. The jury vote was won by Switzerland and the televoting vote was won by Croatia, with 337 points. It is the third victory for Switzerland in the contest, after the inaugural edition and the triumph of Céline Dion in 1988.

The final classification has left Switzerland, Croatia and Ukraine as the top 3 and after them, France, Israel, Ireland, Italy, Armenia, Sweden and Portugal close the top 10.

Among the surprises of the voting, the zero points of the televoting for the singer with the most followers of the night: Olly Alexander, from the United Kingdom, who has achieved 19th place thanks to the 46 points that the jury has given him.

Spain has received a total of 30 points: 19 from the jury (seven from Italy, six from San Marino, four from Austria and one from Finland and Switzerland) and 11 from the televoting (three points from Portugal and Finland, two from Ireland and France and one from Italy).

‘Zorra’ has finished above Austria, Slovenia and Norway, which has achieved its twelfth last position in Eurovision. Spain has been in 22nd place on two other occasions: in 2016 with Barei and in 2019 with Miki.

Switzerland, for its part, has won its third Eurovision contest and will organize the next contest. The city of Geneva has already shown its willingness to host the event.

They owe the victory to Nemo, who is also the first non-binary person to win the contest. Nemo took advantage of the press conference after the victory to celebrate the presence and visibility of queer artists in the contest.

Likewise, when asked how the situation surrounding this contest has affected him, Nemo pointed out that the experience has been “very intense” and that “many of the things have not been love and unity, and that made me very sad”. “However, there was also a lot of love and a lot of unity, many different cultures coming together,” he added and stated: “I really hope that Eurovision can continue to be a place in which to demonstrate for peace and love in the future,” has added.

And he made an analogy with one of the anecdotes of the day: the trophy broke as soon as he picked it up. “I broke the code (because of the lyrics of his song) and I broke the trophy. The trophy can be fixed. Maybe Eurovision should be fixed a little too,” he added.


The 68th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest has begun its broadcast after a busy day in Malmö that began with the disqualification of the representative of the Netherlands, Joost Klein, due to an investigation that is pending against him for alleged threats to a production worker of the contest in Thursday’s semifinal.

Throughout the afternoon, several delegations have expressed their complaint with the Israeli delegation, which they have accused of harassing their artists inside the press center. The EBU has separated Israel from the rest of the delegations in the dressing rooms in the early afternoon, and according to the Israeli media Ynet, it has withdrawn the accreditation of its representative’s stylist, Eden Golan, after trying to record the representative of Greece, Marina Satti.

On a musical level, the gala began with a performance by the leader of the band Blue Swede, Björn Skifs, the first Swedish artist to achieve a number one in sales on the American Billboard chart in 1974, the same year that ABBA won Eurovision. Holograms of the famous Swedish group used in ABBA Voyage have appeared in the show.
