One of the world’s biggest music competition, the Eurovision Song Contest, finally returns for the first time in two years next week, after being postponed last year due to the ongoing pandemic.
As of May 18, 39 countries will be battling to be crowned the Eurovision winner of 2021, taking over from 2019 winner Duncan Laurence, who won for the Netherlands with his now TikTok famous ballad, Arcade.
Anyways, the acts have all been chosen over the last few months and experts have been sussing out who will win for weeks now. Jordan Cox added, ‘With Eurovision right around the corner, we have seen tons of business on our outright market, with Malta and France fighting for favouritism.’
Cox added that another favourite was Iceland’s Daði Freyr, explaining, ‘Freyr was the red-hot favourite to win the 2020 cancellation with his upbeat entry ‘Think About Things’ before the event was shelved for the first time in its 64 year history.’
As it stands, however, Barbara Pravi – who will represent France with her song Voila – and Destiny, with her ode to female empowerment Je Me Casse, are the favourites to win this year’s competition.
Basically, the Eurovision 2021 betting odds are looking at France, Malta, and Switzerland as their top 3 ‘most likely to win’ contestants.
