Norway’s TIX wins Barbara Dex Award 2021 for the most notable outfit
TIX from Norway is the winner of the Barbara Dex Award and will be taking home the trophy for the most notable outfit in Eurovision 2021.
As every year since 1997, one week after the Grand Final of the Eurovision, fans vote for the Barbara Dex Award. While in the past years the fans voted for the worst outfit and which contestant received the most negative comments for his outfit, this year the award was about the most notable outfit.
The voting for fans opened on the day after the Grand Final and was run by songfestival.be, with all 39 participating countries competing. After a week of voting the Norwegian contestant, TIX, found himself in the first place, as his angel wings, white fur coat and some bling bling were enough to attract the fans’ votes for the most remarkable and outstanding Eurovision 2021 dress appearance.
This is the first time Norway wins the award. The artists of Romania and Croatia came in as 2nd and 3th, with only one vote between them. The top 5 came out as following:
1. Norway – TIX
2. Romania– Roxen
3. Croatia – Albina
4. United Kingdom– James Newman
5. Israel – Eden Alene
Let’s remember TIX’s Eurovision Grand final of “Fallen Angel’, in which he finished 18th:
