Controversy and triumph marked the Eurovision 2024 competition held at the prestigious Malmo Arena. The event saw Israel‘s Eden Golan and Ireland’s Bambie Thug making headlines after their performances stirred up a mix of applause, boos, and political tensions.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lauded Eden Golan for her performance, despite facing vocal opposition. Netanyahu praised Golan for representing Israel with pride and receiving significant public support, especially amidst the challenges and controversies.

Meanwhile, Irish performer Bambie Thug accused Eurovision organizers of bias in favor of Israel, sparking a contentious dispute. Thug, known for their pro-Palestinian stance, criticized the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) for allegedly allowing rule violations by the Israeli broadcaster.

Switzerland‘s Nemo emerged as the victor of Eurovision 2024, becoming the first non-binary winner in the competition’s history. Nemo’s success added a celebratory touch, overshadowed by the underlying tensions and political gestures witnessed throughout the event.

Amidst the performances, Portugal‘s Iolanda discreetly displayed support for Palestine with a symbolic nail design, while Greta Thunberg joined pro-Palestinian protesters outside the arena, underscoring the charged atmosphere surrounding Israel’s participation.
