Eurovision Song Contest 2024 Results: Switzerland Reigns Supreme with Nemo's "The Code"

Swedish singer Loreen presented the Eurovision 2024 trophy to the winner, Nemo, from Switzerland. Nemo's song "The Code" triumphed over competitors, accumulating 591 points.

Croatia and Ukraine followed closely behind in second and third place respectively, with 547 and 453 points.

Pre-contest favourites included Croatia's entry, followed by Switzerland, Ukraine, and Ireland, according to bookmakers' predictions. This year's competition, held in Malmö, Sweden, witnessed its fair share of drama. A production team member lodged a complaint against Dutch artist Joost Klein, leading to his disqualification from the contest.

Malmö played host to Eurovision for the third time, having previously held the contest in 2013 when Loreen secured her second Eurovision victory. Sweden's win this year marks their seventh Eurovision championship title, surpassing Ireland's previous record.

Who is Nemo, Eurovision 2024 Champion?

Born in 1999 in Biel, a bilingual town in Switzerland, Nemo's musical journey began at a young age with instruments like the violin, piano, and drums. Nemo's rise to fame came in 2016 with a viral appearance on SRF Virus (#Cypher). This was followed by the release of two successful EPs, placing seven songs on the official Swiss Singles Chart.

The year 2020 marked a turning point for Nemo's career. They ventured into songwriting and production for other artists, while also shifting towards creating music in English. Nemo's music delves into themes of gender identity, mental health, and the human search for belonging.

"The Code," reflecting Nemo's experience with non-binary identity, was co-written with three other composers.
