    Italian glam rock band Maneskin was among the bookmakers' favourites for the victory in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest. However, their victory has appeared to trigger hot debate online between fans and those who would rather have seen a different result.

    After the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest wrapped on Saturday, with Italy winning this year's event, viewers immediately flocked to social media to share their emotions and - of course - discuss and argue.

    The grand final had everyone closely following both the jury and the public vote, but it was impossible to satisfy everyone with the final result, with first place secured by Italian rock band Måneskin.

    Second place was taken by France's Barbara Pravi, followed by Switzerland's Gjon's Tears.

    Users were also triggered after a few countries were left with no points at all, as Germany, Spain and the Netherlands received zero points from the public, and the United Kingdom, unusually, receiving zeros from both the jury and the viewers.

    ​​The UK's failure to receive any points also became a subject for jokes.

    ​Many attacked the results of the jury vote in particular, arguing that "mediocre" songs were chosen.

    ​Dates and city for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest, which will take place in Italy, are yet to be announced.
