The world’s biggest song contest got underway in Liverpool, England, on Saturday, May 13, with tributes to Ukraine.
Kalush Orchestra, the Ukrainian group that won Eurovision last year, played an opening number. The victor normally hosts the following year, but the job went to runner-up UK because of the conflict with Russia — which remains banned.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy asked to address the audience but was rebuffed because of a rule against making political statements.
Last year’s contest had a worldwide audience of 160 million — compared to 113 million for the American football championship game, the Super Bowl. The event is so wildly popular that, for the first time, people outside the 37 Eurovision countries are being allowed to vote for their favorite acts.
Australia – on the other side of the world from Europe – has competed at Eurovision since 2015.
