Vidbir 2022 – Eurovision in times of trouble – Alina Pash to Eurovision

Despite the fact that they are currently resisting Russian troop build-up on their borders, the Ukrainian broadcaster did what broadcasters should always do – transmitted Eurovision selections (if it was good enough for ex-Yugoslavia).

This one started at a frankly ridiculous 4.30pm UK time, so I came to it very late indeed – so much so that I missed Cloudless having technical issues and having to perform a second time (aren’t I lucky?).

Anyhow, the Ukrainians had an eight-song final with Jamilla asking Very Hard Questions™ again of the participants, seemingly, after each performed.

The result was determined by a three-person jury and a televote.

They took the scoreboard down at some point during the televote, and seemingly the jury scores were also wrong but Alina Pash was declared the winner … I think
