The singer from Bienne gave a top-notch performance on the stage of the Malmö Arena in front of 9,000 spectators.

The jury rewarded his interpretation of “The Code” by giving him 365 points. When the public vote was announced, the suspense rose a notch.

“I hope that the competition can continue to position itself for peace and equality,” said Nemo, very moved, when receiving his title.

Croatian candidate Baby Lasagna placed second with his song “Rim Tim Tagi Dim”, which obtained 547 points.

Ukraine is in third place, ahead of France, while Israel came fifth. Nemo’s title stood, along with that of Croatia, at the top of the list of names mentioned by punters in recent weeks.

A very personal song

With “The Code”, the artist evokes the fact of feeling neither man nor woman and the journey taken to find one’s identity. Musically, the title written in English is also very varied with elements of rap, drum and bass and opera.

The track was written as a team a year ago in the space of a day, with Norwegian producer Lasse Midtsian Nymann, Swedish composer Linda Dale and Swiss producer Benjamin Alasu. Nemo Mettler started music at the age of 15 and today lives between Biel and Berlin.
