The final of the competition will be held on May 14 at 22:00 Kyiv time. 25 countries will participate in it: 10 countries from each semi-final and the founding countries and sponsors of the competition – big five (Great Britain, Germany, Spain, Italy and France).
Ukraine at Eurovision 2022 will be represented by the rap group Kalush Orchestra, who are the winners of the National selection for Eurovision according to the results of audience voting. The jury put them in second place, but because of the scandal with the winner of the competition, Alina Pash, in the end, it was this team that was decided to be sent to Turin.
The musicians will perform in the first semi-final under number 6.
It is worth noting that bookmakers are already predicting victory for Ukraine. Since during the war the song Stefania, with which the group will represent our country on the show, has become a kind of symbol of the struggle for freedom. Social media users put her in the background of videos about the struggle of Ukraine against Russia.
Recall that earlier the organizers of the international song contest Eurovision-2022 showed what the main stage of the event will look like.
