Joe and Jake from the United Kingdom
Our Eurovision journey has come to an end, and what a journey it was! we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that voted for us to represent the UK, without you guys we wouldn’t have experience this incredible journey! Our aim was to make the UK proud, although we didn’t get the result we set out for, we both feel as though last night we gave the performance of our lives! We can’t thank you enough! We’re so excited to get started on our new projects and continue working with Sony to bring out some NEW music! You’ll be hearing from us very soon!
Jamie-Lee from Germany
Thank you to all who supported me and voted for me! heart emoticon. I had an incredibly awesome time and look forward too scary for the winner smile emoticon. I have to be strong for the next days, but it’s going to be alright! Personally, I am very happy with my performance and I know that all my fans stand behind me. Germany next year will be a better place, I’m sure. I’m gonna celebrate for now, I wish you have a beautiful night and I hope you’ve enjoyed my appearance yet and celebrated with me.
Frans from Sweden
Francesca Michelin from Italy
Living this week with so many people madly in love with music from all around the world has been extraordinary for me. #ComeTogether has not only been the hashtag of Eurovision. It has been its life source that inspired all of us while waiting to be on stage. That’s what I will never forget for the rest of my life. I will always be proud to have been part of it and to have contributed with a small seed called music. Thanks to everyone I met and those who supported me making all this real. We are precious!
Amir from France
The love and support that France has given me during this unforgettable adventure for me worth as much as VICTORY. I can not thank you enough…
Laura Tesoro from Belgium

Lighthouse X from Denmark
WE WON! Yes, we did indeed. No matter the results in the ESC, the feeling of victory prevails, now that I’m home and look back. A feeling I share with Martin and Johannes. For four years I’ve had the honour of spreading a message of unity, love, trust and tolerance along side with these two lighthouses, peaking these past two weeks. We’ve been touring Denmark thin, met and sung for kids, youngsters and grown ups who all were fighting major difficulties in their lives. Just as we have ourselves, earlier in our lives. By truly listening to each other, by establishing a dialogue that makes us open up for all the things that excite us and scare us, by doing so, we can make a positive difference in the world. We’ve seen it take place in the eyes of the people we’ve met and felt it in our own hearts. Love really is a force of nature, more powerful than anything else. And everyone of us possess that power. It all starts with ourselves, taking steps towards a more loving way of life. One step at a time, side by side. That is the essence of our song Soldiers Of Love. The goal with Lighthouse X is exactly to use the power of music to make us talk through our hearts, to make sure we share our thoughts and to create space and respect for each other. We’ve been talking to hundreds of international journalists and reached thousands of supporters, and the last two weeks in Stockholm has multiplied those numbers. Receiving thousands of messages from people around the world, saying that they believe in the Soliders Of Love message, we know that its been worth all the hard work. I deeply believe that everyone of us are lighthouses if we choose to be so. You are the world, and the world is you. Whatever we choose to share with the world, has profound consequences on others and ourselves. It is as simple as that. We’ve seen how changes can be made when the wisdom of the heart becomes the compass in our everyday lifes. When we come together to make a positive impact. When we listen louder to each other and dare to love more. To me, thats being a lighthouse. And we’ve had the gift of getting to know so many lighthouses on our journey. That’s why I know we have won. We are not alone. Thank you. Forever grateful.

My dear friends! It was a long and challenging journey. In the past months, we visited so many cities and met my fans and supporters from all around Europe. I learned from you that nothing can give you more strength than the support of family, friends and real fans, no matter where they live or what language they speak. You give me even more reasons to believe in miracles!
Minus One from Cyprus
Good morning Cyprus!! Good morning friends and fans! Well, it has been a hell of a ride…. it didn’t end up exactly as we had all hoped for. There were a lot of great songs, and not all of them did get the right recognition. But hey, this is Eurovision, and it is a competition…. What matters is that we got so many messages of love, affection, congratulations, to last a life time. And that we all got together with a dream and a hope that made us all smile! Cyprus is an amazing country and it has been proved again in the last two weeks!! We will write more as we recover from the hangover !!!! Let’s keep rocking!!!
Iveta Mukuchyan from Armenia
I am greatly thankful to all my compatriots, the Armenian diaspora, to everyone, who voted for me and for Armenia, who stood by me all this time. I am happy that together we went through this. I am really strong thanks to you and your support. I also want to address my gratitude to Armenian Ambassador in Sweden Artak Apitonyan and to embassy staff for being so heartwarming and caring.
Ira Losco from Malta
I’m extremely proud of the team, Malta and everyone involved in tonight’s show. As you have seen it has become an extremely cut throat competition. So many good singers, songs, countries. However I can safely say that making it to the final has been amazing and I am so happy with it all. 4th place in Jury vote and an 11 th place shared with the Netherlands . Thank you for ALL of your support Malta!! And congratulations Ukraine and the wonderfully talented Jamala!!
