It is not uncommon for an artist to just add a comment after appearing during Eurovision.
But on Saturday night, the Ukrainian contribution chose to do something a little different.
For after the Ukrainian group, Kalush Orchestra, had finished their song, ‘Stefania’, on stage during Saturday’s Eurovision final, the group’s frontman, rapper Oleg Psyuk, chose to shout a message to the audience.
Both to those in the hall and to those behind the TV screen.
“Help Mariupol,” he shouted, according to the two media from the scene, referring to the Russian-besieged port city in southern Ukraine.
“Help Azovstal right now,” he added.
Azovstal is a giant steelworks located in the city, where Ukrainian units are still hidden.
Normally, one must not come up with political messages from the stage during Eurovision, but it is not known how the EBU assesses the lead singer’s call.
Iceland, too, dropped a remark after its performance.
»Peace to Ukraine. We love you, “shout the Icelandic siblings, Systur, from the stage.
