The Eurovision contest crowned the non-binary artist Nemo, representative of Switzerland, on Saturday evening at the end of a colorful and eclectic evening, an “exuberance” which did not please former minister Ségolène Royal who came from a tweet this Monday morning.

The competition seems to have shocked Ségolène Royal if we are to believe her long message posted at dawn on X (formerly Twitter). Beyond the musical performances, it was especially the costumes which offended the former minister. “Competition of ugliness, vulgarity, crudeness, exhibitionism (sanctioned by law but broadcast to millions of children and teenagers!!)”, it is in these terms that Ségolène Royal judged the edition 2024 Eurovision Song Contest held on Saturday evening in Malmö, Sweden.

#Eurovision2024 It was not a musical talent contest, but a contest of ugliness, vulgarity, crudeness, exhibitionism (sanctioned by law but broadcast to millions of children and teenagers!!). We must hope that not one euro of public or European money…

The politician believes that it would be shocking “if not one euro of public or European money went to this dismal farce” and calls for a public debate on the artists’ clothing choices. “Did the singers themselves have the freedom to refuse the pitiful abusive clothing that the organizers made them wear?” she asks.

And to continue: “A serious investigation into the methods as well as a detailed financial assessment of this shabby but obviously costly exhibition are necessary.” Heavy accusations made, without giving Internet users the opportunity to enter into the debate, the comments having been voluntarily closed by Ségolène Royal.
