Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra perform Eurovision 2022 entry, ‘Stefania’

The Eurovision Song Contest is fast approaching, with a new group of artists competing to have their music crowned the song of the year.

The annual celebration of Europe’s greatest music acts kicked off in Turin on Tuesday (10 May) with the first semi-final, while the second was on Thursday (12 May).

The countries that made it through in the first semi-final were Armenia, Greece, Iceland, Lithuania, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and Ukraine.

The qualifiers in the second semi-final were Australia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Sweden.

Eurovision’s grand final is taking place tonight (14 May). You can find out more information about how to watch here.

According to William Hill, Ukraine are leading the pack to win the competition, with a 42 per cent chance of winning, amid the country’s ongoing war with Russia.

For the first time in years, the UK’s entry, Sam Ryder, is in a good position before the competition begins and looks likely to do far better than James Newman’s disastrous “nul points” last year.

Read the current top 10 below...

Ukraine: Kalush Orchestra, “Stefania” – 4/11

United Kingdom: Sam Ryder, “Space Man” – 6/1

Sweden: Cornelia Jakobs, “Hold Me Closer” – 15/2
