Eurovision 2022 | Winner, Fun Facts, Best Songs…
From 10 to 14 May, Turin (Italy), hosted Eurovision 2022, the 66th edition of the world’s biggest international music festival. After Måneskin‘s victory at Eurovision 2021, we experienced the most political Eurovision Song Contest ever, with the expulsion of Russia, and Ukraine as the winner ✨
Eurovision 2022 winner
Not without controversy, because the chosen singer, Alina Pash, withdrew for allegedly being close to Russia, came the obvious winner of ESC 2022, Kalush Orchestra.
Immersed in the war, the vocalist is in charge of distributing medicines and helping the inhabitants of his country to flee the war. Another colleague works in a territorial defence unit, and what’s more, they have not been able to rehearse together.
We promise all Ukrainians that we will live up to their choice. In difficult times for our country, we will make our presence known throughout the world ✊
Ukraine won thanks to the people vote, so they are the well deserved winners. ¡Congratulations!
