In what is truly the wildest crossover in a long, long time, Eurovision and the Euro 2020 tournament have been mentioned in the same sentence. Why? Because Italy has already won this year’s song contest, so it doesn’t need to win Sunday night’s final as well.
Back in May, the Italian rock band Måneskin took home the trophy in the 65th annual Eurovision Song Contest, held in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. They won with 524 points, while the United Kingdom – with our track “Embers” by James Newman - stayed true to form and came last with nil points.
However, while Måneskin themselves have suggested to ITV’s Nina Nannar that they’ll be showing support for their national team on Sunday night (band member Victoria De Angelis joked that “we’re going to be enemies”), UK Twitter is hoping tonight will see England steal Italy’s thunder:
Italy, you won Eurovision. You can’t have the Euros too. Don’t be greedy now.
