The interpreters of “Stefania” won the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
Then final where politics overlaps with songs, Eurovision Song Contest Ukraine takes it home. but yes before pronouncing the sentence War scenarios covered music by Esc: Zelensky who called the Kalush video orchestra to vote, pro-Russian hackers threatening a cyber attack to prevent their victory, the opening theme with the Rockin1000 playing “Give Peace a Chance”. So During the competition the same Ukrainian band Who launched an appeal all over the world: «Help the Ukrainian people, help Mariupol». Applause and a standing ovation.
Folklore and rap, flute solo and breakdance, traditional Carpathian fashion and street fashion: their song “Stefania” is dedicated to the mother of the leader of the group, Oleg Psyuk, but with the noise of the rockets, it took on a broader and more universal meaning that reached everyone. A historic victory and a slap in the face for Putin for the European peoples: the winds of solidarity and sympathy pushed Ukraine to the top of the rankings. Instead, national jury votes put the United Kingdom (second in the end), Sweden (third) and Spain in competition, with Ukraine only fifth, but television broadcasting was decisive. President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on his Telegram channel: “Our courage impresses the world, our music conquers Europe.” On the other hand, EU leaders welcomed the victory on Twitter as follows: “Tonight your song won our hearts. We celebrate your victory around the world. “The European Union is with you,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen wrote. “The hope is that next year Eurovision will be hosted in Kyiv in a free and united Ukraine,” added European Council President Charles Michel, citing some of the lines of the winning song, “Stefania.” The way home, even if all roads are destroyed.” A congratulatory message was also received from the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs, Josep Borrell: “Long live the music! Long live Europe! Glory to Ukraine! ».
Disappointment for Mahmoud and Blanco who were always at the top of the rankings but never gave the feeling of having the right equipment: in the end they finished sixth without shame and without praise.
In the beginning it was Laura Pausini opens the show
With a mix of 5 songs: “Hello”, “Solitude”, “Things You Live”, “I Sing” and “Box”, each with different color clothes and quick changes of clothes I miss my brush. Then the parade form takes the stage and the race begins, a train with 25 stops that does not allow breaks.
Waiting to understand if Ukraine will be able to host within a year Eurovision Zelensky announced, again via Telegram: “Next year Ukraine will host Eurovision for the third time in history. We will do everything in our power so that Mariupol becomes the host city.” The credit says the ratings (net of final) were excellent, with a solid core of five and a half million spectators craving the rehearsals of unknown singers. That’s thanks to the slim format, which works quickly within a very stiff lineup, which leaves no room for deflection. Weak side in connectivity but hard to find a better solution. The official presenters (Mika, Cattelan, Bossini) deal with the international version, even if in each country they are “obscured” by the off-screen commentators’ voices used by every local television. And so in the end they seem a bit lost, notable personalities surrounding them.
Rai1 version was commissioned with the Malgioglio trilogy, Corsi and De Domenico: There are too many of the three too because the spaces for intervention are very limited (and Carolina de Domenico paid for it). If Gabriel Corsi is overly accountable (but also bound to explain what’s going on), Cristiano Malgoglio has taken the stage, both with commentaries on songs (always centered, beyond his personal taste one might object), with both digressions out of space And out of time about her friends, about who was “handsome” and who wasn’t. Social style commentary, is the right way to go since the second screen (I watch TV and judge live) has now entered into audience habits.
Responsible for nine consecutive years of the project At the Sanremo Festival (but there will be no news next year), Claudio Fasolo, Deputy Director of Prime Time Rai Entertainment and Executive Producer of Eurovision 2022 with Simona Martorelli sums up: “Ray, with your Excellencies, has won the audition brilliantly for a mega show like Eurovision ».
