ESC 2021: Jendrik never wanted to win – Viewers are pissed off
About the provocative snapshot, Jendrik writes on Instagram: “To be honest, I already thought that this could happen, but a good placement was never the reason why I wanted to take part in the ESC – but you all know that – I wanted to take part, to experience this event personally – the celebration of music, cultures and community. “
So Jendrik didn’t take part to emerge as the winner of the evening, but simply to have fun and get a positive message across. Not a bad approach, but it’s obvious that you won’t win any prizes with it.
