Italy are favourites to win Eurovision Song Contest 2021

The world's biggest music competition returns tonight, and the finalists have finally been decided.

Last year the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, so people are looking forward to it more than ever.

There will be 26 countries competing to win, with James Newman representing the UK with his song Embers.

This week two semi finals have aired live from Rotterdam in the Netherlands, to decide the final line up.

So now the big question is – who will win the Eurovision Song Contest 2021?

Iceland and Malta were both early favourites, and Switzerland, France and Italy have become late favourites.

Based on Coral's betting odds, here are the favourites to win Eurovision.

According to the bookmaker, Italy, who are competing with the group Måneskin, are the favourite to win at 9-4 odds.

The Italian rock group are hoping to bring something unique to the contest with their song Voices – and so far they have proved very popular.

France are the second favourites with 3-1 odds. Barbara Pravi will be singing her song Voilà, which we had a preview of at the second semi final.

Another country to watch out for is Malta, with 6-1 odds.

Destiny, who you may remember from Britain's Got Talent in 2017, is performing empowerment anthem Je Me Casse in the final.

Switzerland and Ukraine are also both in the running, with 8-1 odds.

Switzerland's act is Gjon’s Tears with Tout L’Univers, while Ukraine are hoping to win with electro-folk band Go_A.

Iceland are still favourites with 11-1 odds, but unfortunately they won't be performing live, because one of the band members of Daði og Gagnamagnið tested positive for coronavirus.
