It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! To round off our 6th birthday celebrations, it’s time to find out who has won Europe in a Day’s Birthday Eurovision 2021!
For the last month, 32 songs representing the countries featured in the Europe in a Day book and website have been competing for the votes of international juries. As well as the juries from the countries taking part, juries from the 10 Europe in a Day countries and territories that don’t take part at the actual Eurovision Song Contest (England, the Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Scotland, Transnistria, Wales and Vatican City) have also awarded their douze points!
In addition to the scores of these 42 juries, the results of the public vote conducted HERE were added to the juries’ final marks as a televote. Countries will reveal their points in alphabetical order by the name of their capital city, starting with competing countries. Did the televoters and jurors of Europe agree over who was best? Let’s take a look and find out! Good evening Europe, this is Madrid calling!

For those of you who love to study the results in full and see whose points went where, here is the table of the full results, combining both the juries and the televote!
Well, the juries and televoters had very different reactions to this year’s songs! The emotional ballad ‘Rapsodia’ from Italy won over the juries with a staggering 79 point lead over 2nd place Iceland, while the televote was much closer fought with Top 3 Romania, Croatia and Serbia being separated by only 13 points! In the end though, it wasn’t enough to dislodge Italy from the top, who won the contest with 310 points!
So a big congratulations to Italy for winning Europe in a Day’s Birthday Eurovision 2021! Here’s the winner’s reprise!
A big thank you to all of our international juries who cast their votes and to everyone around the world who took part in the televote – hope you enjoyed the show!
Do you agree with the result? Did your favourites do well?
Until next year in Florence! 😉
