With 631 points, the Kalush Orchestra group won this Saturday evening in Turin. Meanwhile, Alvan & Ahez of France finished in 24th place.
The gamblers were correct. Ukraine won the Eurovision 2022 final, which took place in Turin on Saturday evening, with 631 points. Kalush Orchestra has made a name for itself thanks to its song, which combines hip-hop and traditional sounds. The French team Alvan & Ahez, who successfully defended their tricolor in Breton, finished in 24th place, with only 17 points.
This year’s edition took place in unique circumstances: Europe has been living to the beat of the Kremlin’s violent offensive on Ukraine since February. The situation led to Russia’s exclusion from the 66th Eurovision Song Contest, while the Kalush Orchestra, which was elected to represent their country just days before the invasion began, benefited from increased media attention. So much so that the group had remained in first place in the bookmaker rankings for months.
