Duncan Laurence singing ‘Arcade’ beat off 25 other contestants in the grand final in Tel Aviv to win the glass microphone trophy.
The 41-country singing competition featured a guest appearance by Madonna, who caused some controversy when two backing dancers briefly appeared on stage wearing costumes emblazoned with the Israeli and Palestinians flags. Iceland’s contestants also displayed small Palestinian banners during the voting.
With its victory – its first in 44 years – the Netherlands wins the right to host next year’s competition.
