Kalush Orchestra of Ukraine, currently the favorite to win the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest

The Ukrainian group Kalush Orchestra is the best to win the Eurovision Song Contest.

Kalush Orchestra, a rap group founded in 2019, replaced Ukrainian original entrant Alina Pash, who withdrew from the competition in February. The song of the group “Stefania” is a node for powerful mothers.

The Grand Eurovision Final 2022 will take place at the PalaOlimpico in Turin, Italy, this weekend (May 14), and the chance for the Kalush Orchestra is currently 8/11 (via Oddschecker).

The song “Stefania”, written by singer Oleh Psiuk, is also the most viewed on YouTube among the 35 candidates: “Some of them say that we could win because of the war, but our song among the five favorites before the start of the conflict. , which means that he likes people in spite of everything, “said Psiuk in an interview with the Ansa news agency in Italy (via Guardian).

And he continued: “Those of us here are all Ukrainians. After Eurovision we will return home to do our part.”

Regarding Stefania’s dedication to her mother, she said: “That’s the best thing I’ve ever done for her; and with the outbreak of war the meaning extends to all mothers who protect their children.”

The band received special permission to visit Israel for a pre-Eurovision concert, as men of military age are barred from leaving the country. This was his first international performance since the invasion began.

Russia has been barred from competing in this year’s competition following responses to an earlier statement from organizers that the country could compete despite launching a military offensive on Ukraine.

Last year the Italian group Måneskin won Eurovision, which has achieved international success, standing out as the Rolling Stones’ starting act in 2021.

Last week, the group shared details of an upcoming single called “Supermodel,” which will be released the day before Eurovision on 13 May.
