On May 11 in the Swedish city of Malmö, the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 took place. According to the voting results, the crystal microphone was awarded to the artist Nemo from Switzerland. Croatia took second place, and Ukraine came in third, as reported on the song contest's website.

Singer Nemo, who identifies as non-binary, presented the song "The Code" at the contest, which had already become a hit and topped global charts before the competition. In this song, Nemo draws attention to gender identity and mental health.



Traditionally, for Eurovision, points were awarded in two stages. First were the results from professional national juries, and then the hosts announced the results of the audience vote in 37 participating countries.

After receiving the first scores from 37 national juries, Switzerland confidently led with 365 points displayed on the scoreboard. Out of 36 possible top scores of 12 points, the song "The Code" received 22. This allowed Nemo to take the lead with a 147-point margin over the closest pursuer, France. After the announcement of the audience voting results, Nemo's total points reached 591, securing a decisive victory in this year's song contest.

He received 12 points, in particular, from Ukrainian viewers and the national jury.

Overall, the top five of Eurovision 2024 looks like this:

  • Switzerland (591 points)
  • Croatia (547 points) — the best result for the country in the history of the contest
  • Ukraine (453 points)
  • France (445 points)
  • Israel (375 points)

Nemo Mettler, known as Nemo, was born on August 3, 1999, in the city of Biel, Switzerland. At the age of 18, he released a platinum single and two mini-albums, earning him five awards at the Swiss Music Awards ceremony.

In 2020, the young musician began actively expanding his audience beyond Switzerland, releasing several English-language songs and the album "Whatever Feels Right."

In 2023, Nemo announced his non-binary gender identity and requested the use of the pronoun "they" when referring to him.
