During the

Eurovision

final, a strong message was expected from the representatives of

Ukraine

(one of the great favorites) about the war that is ravaging their country.

So it was.

The members of the

Kalush Orchestra

have asked for immediate help for

Ukraine, Mariupol and Azovstal

" after finishing their performance.

A cry for help that has moved all those attending the festival's grand gala and has been widely applauded by the public.

A message that has come after a great performance with rapper rhythms and a great song

'Stefania'

.

But first, fifty years after the conflict that motivated it and in a context of similar need, John Lennon

's call for peace 'Give Peace A Chance'

has kicked off the grand finale in Turin (Italy).

It was with a staged performance from

Piazza San Carlo

, one of the most typical postcards of this Piedmontese city at the foot of the Alps, where the European festival landed two weeks ago for the start of its rehearsals at the

Pala Olimpico

.

In that villa built for the 2006 Winter Games, the singer

Laura Pausini

, co-host of the event along with fellow musician Mika and the "showman"

Alessandro Cattalan

, has taken up the baton before some 8,000 people wearing masks who fervently follow the development of the contest .

Veinticinco países se disputan el codiciado micrófono de cristal, con

Ucrania

como favorita de las casas de apuestas desde el inicio de la invasión rusa y otros aspirantes que se mantienen fuertes en los vaticinios, como

Reino Unido, Suecia, Italia

y la cubanoespañola

Chanel

, que will compete in tenth position with the song "SloMo".

At the end of the competition performances, viewers are also expected to enjoy a medley of

Maneskin

's hits and performances by two Italian winners of the festival: the band Maneskin, winner of 2021, and the iconic Gigliola Cinquetti, who will perform ' Non Ho L'Età' as in 1974.
