THE NETHERLANDS – The 64th Eurovision Song Contest winner enjoyed the victory last night despite the fact that the win came not from juries or public but from the combination of the results. EBU always gets the first interview on stage with the winner.
Duncan refused to sing acapella hissing at the press conferences, calling the fans to listen the song in music platforms or buy the song, a clear hint for the piracy taking place the recent decades. But the Eurovision winner didn’t disappoint his fans as he performed at the Euroclub.

Yesterday was great! We won the televotes, which has been our goal the entire time. We’re so happy that we reached the people at home, and we can’t wait to meet all of you! We do this because we love music, and we believe that music unites people. We believe in the accept of minorities, and that no matter who you are, how you look, who you love and wherever you’re from – you are more than good enough! Thank you Europe for believing in us. We love you ❤️
But it wasn’t all about The Netherlands. Tamta from Cyprus and KEiiNO, the public voting winners were there. They were obviously the only ones happy with the event no matter the results, having in mind that KEiiNO lost the trophy!
It is no secret that after the contest many participants are not in a position to party or make a statement. Italian entrant couldn’t even smile despite his great result while North Macedonian entrant, Tamara was sobbing the Greek press due to 1 point from the Greek jury (while North Macedonia gave null points to Greece).
