On Saturday evening, Italy won the Eurovision Musical Competition 2021, while the Swiss, Gion, from his side, took third place in the title of “All the Universe”, after winning the votes of the jury.
The leading Italy won over France thanks to the strong performances of rock players from the Manskin group, who performed the song “Ziti e Bonnie”.
As weird as it is, Gruérien Gjon Tears performed better than Bernese Luca Hänni, who finished fourth in 2019 with his song “She Got Me”.

Health conditions forced the event, which was followed every year by several million viewers, to reinvent itself after it was canceled in 2020, the first in the competition’s history.
3,500 spectators, pre-tested, were allowed to attend the semi-finals, finals and six rehearsals. This represents 20% of the exhibition hall capacity.
Since the start of the competition, candidates have been locked in a “special bubble” and tested daily.
Despite this, Dutchman Duncan Lawrence, the 2019 winner, tested positive. So it didn’t happen directly on Saturday night. The same is the case with Icelandic group Daði og Gagnamagnið, and a video from their rehearsal was broadcast, replacing their live performance.
