After two long years of waiting, finally the new Eurovision Song Contest has a champion.

Måneskin of Italy rocked their way to the trophy with the song Zitti E Buoni.

While Switzerland won the jury vote and Italy came fourth, the 4-piece Italian rock band won the public vote by a landslide, scoring a total of 529 points and leaving Switzerland in 3rd place behind France.

They thanked their fans and the Eurovision community for all their support before reminding everyone that “rock and roll never dies!”

Måneskin is a critically acclaimed band featuring vocalist Damiano, bassist Victoria, guitarist Thomas and Ethan on drums. They took their band name from the Danish word for ‘moonlight’, as a tribute to their bassist Victoria’s home country.
