The 2022 Eurovision Song Contest wrapped up yesterday afternoon, where Ukraine took home the top prize thanks to a massive wave of support in the public vote.
One of the world's biggest biggest musical competitions took place in Turin, Italy from May 10-14, where 40 countries competed to win. (Originally, Russia had also been included in the contest, but following the Russian invasions of Ukraine that began in February, the country was ultimately excluded.)
In the wake of these invasions, it seems that Eurovision viewers were swooping in to show their support for Ukraine because last night, the Kalush Orchestra, a Ukrainian rap group, took the #1 spot with a total score of 631 points. The group won for their submitted song, “Stefania,” which became the first song sung entirely in Ukrainian to win the competition, as well as the first rap song to win. This is the third time Ukraine has taken the top spot in the history of the competition.
