"Everybody" was the winner of the
Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in English by Tanel Padar, Dave Bentonand 2XL, representing Estonia. The song was performed twentieth on the night (following Germany's Michelle with " Wer Liebe Lebt" and preceding Malta's Fabrizio Faniellowith " Another Summer Night"). At the close of voting, it had received 198 points, with the win coming at the head of a 23-song field.
Lyrically, the song is simply an invitation to party, with the duo singing that "every night's a Friday night". The song is famous for two major reasons. The first of these is that Benton is the oldest contestant to win the grand prize. The second is that he is the first black contestant to do so.
Maarja-Liis Ilushas recorded a cover version.
Estonia were the first ex-member of the USSR to win the Contest, with the second and third following shortly thereafter. Tanel had previously provided backing vocals for Estonia's 2000 "entry", sung by
Eda-Ines Etti, his then-girlfriend.
