The ESC favorite Ukraine delivered a strong performance in the grand final

Folk-rap group Kalush Orchestra gave a stunning rendition of their song Stefania in the Eurovision grand finale.

The Ukrainian act are currently the favorites to win as they have led the pack since invading Russia – prompting organizers to ban the country from participating.

The group was dressed in elaborate outfits, including long, fringed, multicolored ensembles, a pink bucket hat, and others in traditional patterns.

They are one of 25 acts competing for the top prize following the week-long competition in Turin, Italy.

Their performance, which combined rap and Ukrainian folklore, was well received by the 7,000 spectators at the Pala Olimpico, who cheered on the group with many waving Ukrainian flags.

At the end of the performance, which included break dancing, the group thanked everyone for supporting Ukraine.

Graham Norton, who is again hosting the competition on BBC One, said: “We weren’t sure if they were going to make it, but they did it.

“Your commentator didn’t make it, he’s commenting from an air raid shelter.”
