Duncan Laurence from the Netherlands has won the 2019 Eurovision song contest with his song Arcade in Tel Aviv, Israel. Despite political backlash over this year's host country of Israel, Madonna had a message of her own. Sweden won the jury vote while Norway won the public vote.
The European Broadcasting Union, which co-produced the contest alongside Israel's national broadcaster, issued a statement immediately after her performance.
