Ukraine's Kalush Orchestra Wins Eurovision 2022

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Ukraine has won Eurovision 2022. The prize goes to Kalush Orchestra for their song "Stefania." The six-man hip-hop group garnered 631 points, including a record 439 votes from the public.

The organizers of Eurovision normally try to avoid politics, but Russia was excluded from this year's competition because of the invasion of Ukraine. The entire finale night of the competition had a a theme of war and peace. And while accepting the prize, Kalush Orchestra frontman Oleg Psiuk asked the global audience of millions to help Ukraine in its hour of need. 

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was reportedly watching the finale on TV, and cheering for the band. He issued a statement ending with the words, "Glory be to Ukraine!โ€
