    PewDiePie shared his take on Eurovision 2019, with the Netherlands winning the song contest following a dramatic vote count. Felix's home country, Sweden, won the jury's vote, but came short of making it into top-5 due to the results of the popular vote.

    Top Youtube star PewDiePie has taken to Twitter to comment on the performances at the Eurovision 2019 in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv. Pewds tweeted about each artist performing in the song contest; most of the Swede's comments were highly critical.

    While PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Fjellberg, was tweeting right at the time of the performances, his take on the show went viral, with many of the social media platform's users retweeting, sharing and sharing memes.

    Pewds has shown support for John Lundvik from his home country, but many users have noticed that while the v-logger's comments were highly critical. Felix was far more benign toward the signer from Sweden, who gained most jury votes but came in sixth in the end due to results of the popular vote.

    Some of Felix's comments appeared to anger his followers. Particularly, PewDiePie joked that "Australia is not even a country," prompting accusations of discrimination. Others didn't hesitate to respond to Pewds' comments and struck back at the Youtuber.

    Many others, however, enjoyed the Youtuber's fresh take on Eurovision and responded with memes.

    While at first Pewds described the Netherlands' performance as "uh bad," after the country had been announced as the winner of Eurovision 2019, he congratulated the singer.

    After the jury's decision and the popular vote, Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands, who sung the song 'Arcade' won the contest. Italy’s Mahmood came second with 'Soldi' and Russian singer Sergey Lazarev was voted third best.
