25 countries climbed to the Palo Olimpico podium in Turin during the Eurovision Song Contest final on Saturday.
Shortly after midnight, voting began in Italy, with the jury voting first.
A disappointing start for Norway
After all 40 countries cast their jury votes, Britain was in the lead. They got a total of eight 12 throws.
Sweden and Cornelia Jacobs breathed Sam Ryder in the neck in second place after a jury vote.
Norway got a disappointing 36 points from the jury. Ukraine’s somewhat preferred start was rather slow. But when the jury votes were over, the Kalush Orchestra took fourth place.
When the polls were tallied, it became clear that Norway had a total of 146 points. Subsequently, Subwoolfer finished with a total of 182 points and 10th place in this year’s Eurovision.
Thus, there was no victory for Norway’s contribution.
Tenth place occupies a very good place in the largest music competition in the world, so we are very pleased, says Stig Carlsen, head of the NRK delegation.
– We’re now in the process of preparing for X, Y, and Z factors on other planets, so now we’re on the move, says SubWoolfer translator Carl-Henrik Wahl to TV 2.
Although Eurovision is now over and many fans want to know who is hiding behind the masks, the translator must disappoint the fans.
– Maybe we should look forward to next year in time. Wall answers Now we have to see if we can fool ourselves at Eurovision next year as well.
The people saved Ukraine
Pre-nominated Ukraine received a total of 439 points from the people. It’s a new record when it comes to folk sounds, and it sent Kalush’s orchestra straight to the top.
The Ukrainian group finished with 631 points and thus emerged victorious from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
Our courage in persuading the world and our music conquered Europe. Next year, Eurovision will be held in Ukraine. We will do everything possible so that one day we can receive guests and artists from Eurovision in Mariupol, wrote President Volodymyr Zelensky on Telegram.
The port city of Mariupol was under fierce Russian attack since the beginning of the war, and it was one of Russia’s most important targets. Large parts of the city are now in ruins after the attack of the Russians.
At a press conference after the final, the Ukrainian winners said it was an important victory.
Every victory counts for Ukraine these days. The winners say, according to a press release from EBU.
The winners say they hope to host the final next year in Ukraine, but say it’s too early to talk about plans for that.
– We will do everything we can to host Eurovision next year in a peaceful new Ukraine, say the winners, who will return to their homeland in a few days.
– I had swelling and cried in my throat when Ukraine was on stage. It was a powerful moment. I think it was contributing to them getting a lot of audience votes, says MGP President Carlsen.
When asked if it would be appropriate for Norway to help Ukraine rank for Eurovision next year, Carlsen replied that it’s hard to say anything about now, but it’s clear that Norway wants the arrangement.
Last year’s winners Ukraine and the Kalush Orchestra also congratulate their victory.
– It means more than just a well-deserved victory. In dark times, music can always bring light and make everyone feel close, Måneskin writes on Twitter.
Great Britain came in second strong, Spain in third, and Sweden in fourth.
