Eurovision, the "best night of the year" ... on Twitter


If the European song contest recorded its best audience on French television on Saturday evening since 2009, the evening took

This 65th edition of Eurovision should go down in history.

The competition, broadcast on France 2, recorded its best French television audience on Saturday evening since 2009, but the evening took on a whole new dimension on Twitter, where spectators were very inspired by each of the - many - highlights of the evening.

Iceland, the Covid ... and the 80′s

On Twitter, Iceland found its audience despite a performance recorded due to Covid-19.

One member of the group tested positive during the week.

Despite the absence of a real audience, their very 80's performance and their incredible turquoise sweaters were acclaimed.

The 80s called, they want Iceland back.

(Actually, I like it a lot!) # Eurovision

A little later in the evening, the small island of the North will finish conquering the hearts during the attribution of the points, voluntarily… austere…

Oh shit, Iceland they picked up a guy at random from Reykjavik harbor to go and score the points.

We feel that he has something else to fuck than being at # Eurovision there.

Like gutting salmon.

Germany ... off topic?

A catchy air, bright colors and perky artists: with Jendrik, Germany offered a performance “à la Mika”, “completely off”, but which ultimately convinced neither the jury nor the public.

→… Do I really need to comment there?

Beyond the performance of Germany, the spectators laughed heartily at the costume of the dancer, already become a meme - a viral image - on social networks.

Germany deserves to win just for this person who probably must have played a bush in a play a few years ago.

Lithuania and Ukraine, unclassifiable

Passage also very noticed for Lithuania, candy yellow and all in self-mockery, with a hit which hit the mark in this hoped-for end of the pandemic ...

That's how I am going to dance in the club after pandemic.

Passing just before France, Ukraine and its aptly named song “Shum”, which means noise, has visibly touched Internet users, who have been prevented from going to discos for months.

Barbara Pravi, the emotional moment

It's been a long time since France had not put aside its sarcasm to comment on the passage of "its" artist to Eurovision, but Barbara Pravi has managed the feat of silencing the scoffers.

His performance moved the world, even if some did not fail to notice how much this performance was… French.

No, but sick talent.

And this emotion, this charisma ... 🥺🙏🏻👏🏻 Gogogoogogo #BarbaraPravi #Eurovision

Good loser, the United Kingdom toasts

The title of James Newman, who represented the United Kingdom, suffered the humiliation of "draws", obtaining zero points in the standings.

But the artist showed his fair play by getting up with a smile, waving his beer in the direction of the cameras.

The UK had already finished last in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest.

I know this is gutting, but the way the whole arena rallied around James Newman was a really touching #Eurovision

The unbearable France-Switzerland suspense

The representative of Switzerland Gjon's Tears created a surprise by finishing first in the standings at the end of the first round of voting by the national juries of Eurovision.

Appeared in the French version of The Voice in 2019, the 22-year-old singer, Gjon Muharremaj, gave France a hard time.

In the end, the public vote decided for Italy.


Switzerland: gives 12 points to France

France which does not give 12 to Switzerland:

The "seum" of Belgium

Belgium is the only French-speaking country which has not given France any points, despite a performance hailed by the greatest number.

On this French side of the border, many Internet users have seen there a return of the Belgian post-FIFA World Cup “seum”. Was Belgian goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois a member of the jury, as one tweeters wonders?

So Belgium has still not digested the 2018 World Cup. We should forget the seum, one day when the other #Eurovision

- Assia Hamdi (@Assia_H) May 22, 2021

Let's talk about Belgium and their vote obviously the Seum is still present #Eurovision

Belgium which gives us no point.

Italy takes the lead

Italian rock band Maneskin finally stole the show from both France and Switzerland, collecting a large number of points from the audience.

And the winners of this 65th edition of # Eurovision ... Italy!

🇮🇹 Bravo # IT #eurovisionrtbf #rtbf

The competition continues with an unexpected controversy

As soon as they win, as soon as they are called into question: the Italians are the subject of a controversy that calls into question their victory, since a video extract suggests that the singer, Damiano David, absorbed a dose of cocaine live during the competition.

"It was my teammate who broke a glass, I don't take drugs," says Italian singer Damiano David (Maneskin) #Italy #Eurovision

#Eurovision #Italy The Italians when they won but saw their singer snorting coke:

What give hope to the French, who still hope to see Barbara Pravi rise to first place at the end of the controversy.

Italy will possibly be disqualified.

* Italy passes in front of France *

* Italy sniffs a rail of coke *

The French who demand the disqualification of Italy: #Eurovision

The conclusion ?

There she is…

In truth, last night, I think it was the best night on #Twitter for a long time and just for that, ♥ ️ on you!
