Eurovision: Ukraine win contest with UK in second place

The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 crowned its winner on Saturday night, as Kalush Orchestra claimed the top spot and the trophy.

The Ukrainian band stormed to victory with the track Stefania, beating other countries and entries including the UK’s Sam Ryder.

Ukraine had been the frontrunners from the start, before the live final had kicked off live from Turin in Italy, the home of last year’s winners Måneskin.

Amid Ukraine’s ongoing conflict with Russia, which led to Russia being banned from the annual singing contest, the country’s entry secured a place in the live final and was tipped to win.

The group seized the top spot following a tense night of voting which saw the UK top the chart following votes from the jury.

But ultimately the Ukrainian band scooped the top spot once the public votes came in – propelling them to the top of the list with 631 points.

Accepting the prize, the band said: “Thank you so much. Thank you for supporting Ukraine.

“This victory is for every Ukrainian!”

UK commentator Graham Norton had high praise for Sam and was stunned to see him make it to second place.

He said the singer – who hails from Maldon – had done the country proud, and taken the UK within an inch of ending a 25 year long drought of success.

The last British entrant to win Eurovision was Katrina and the Waves who won in 1997 with the song Love Shine a Light.
