Check out the detailed results, voting and points from the Eurovision Song Contest 2024.

Nemo

Nemo Mettler (3 August 1999) is a non-binary Swiss rapper, singer, and musician born in Biel/Bienne, Switzerland. Along with singing, Nemo also plays the violin, piano, and drums. Currently, Nemo is signed to the Swiss Label Bakara Music. On the second season of The Masked Singer Switzerland, Nemo was unmasked as the panda after finishing in 5th place.

Since 2015, Nemo has been active in the music industry and has released multiple Extended Plays (EPs) and singles. Their first EP “Clownfisch” was released on 23 June 2015 and peaked at 95 on the Swiss music charts. The highest charting single Nemo has to date is their 2017 song “Du,” which peaked at four and went platinum on the Swiss charts.

Nemo also has numerous awards to their name. In 2017, they received an Energy Music Award for Best Swiss Artist and a Prix Walo award for Newcomer. Currently, Nemo has five Swiss Music Awards to their name: one in 2017 for Best Talent, and four in 2018 for Best Male Solo Act, Best Breaking Act, Best Live Act, and Best Hit for the song “Du.”

In November of 2023, Nemo publicly announced in an article in SonntagsZeitung that they identify as non-binary, and this is also what the song “The Code” is about:

– My truth is feeling comfortable with myself and realizing I was non-binary, Nemo said to Eurovisionworld.

– Being non-binary is a big part my truth. Just this feeling of being able to stand up for myself and be myself wherever I go is the biggest part of my truth.

In a society where minorities clearly still have a long way to go, stepping onto the world’s biggest stage and sharing a message of acceptance and inclusivity is bigger for Nemo than actually winning the contest:

– That’s precisely the biggest part, Nemo confirms.

– The fact that I can show up as myself and present myself the way I am is more than I could have ever dreamed of. I hope people see I am perfect the way I am because no one can tell me (or you) otherwise.

Voting

The voting procedure followed last year’s formula. Viewers in some of the non-participating countries (“rest of the world”) were able to vote online. These online votes had the same weight as one participating country in both of the Semi-Finals, as well as the Grand Final. Each country and “rest of the world” had one set of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 points to give.

  • Each of the 37 countries participating in this year’s Eurovision could vote.
  • Each country had a national jury who gave one set of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 points.
  • Each country had televoting which also resulted in a set of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 points.
  • Additionally, “rest of the world”-countries gave one set of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 12 points.
  • First, the juries points were presented individually by a spokesperson from each country.
  • Secondly, the points from televoting/online were bundled, and given combined.
  • The national juries voted the evening before the final (Friday, 10 May) during the second dress-rehearsal.
  • If two countries had the same points, a combined national televoting and jury result was calculated only for the purpose of solving a tie situation. The best of the two was the song which has obtained points from the highest number of countries from the combined national televoting and jury calculation.
