Fans of the Ukrainian band from the Eurovision Song Contest in 2022 have praised the band ...

Tonight (May 14) was the first thing to behold when the Eurovision Song Contest will feature 25 nations to compete for the ultimate musical bragging rights.

From Turin''s Pala Olimpico Arena, this spectacular event was hosted by Mika (his album Life in Cartoon Motion was the soundtrack of 2007), Laura Pausini (an Italian singer honoured with both Grammy and Golden Globe awards) and Alessandro Cattelan (his former host of The X Factor in Italy).

Following the likes of Norwegian Subwoolfer and Finnish rockers The Rasmus, Kalush Orchestra received the most of its love on social media, performing their track ''Stefania'' through a shady blend of hip-hop and folk.

The country has been under threat from President Vladimir Putin''s Russian army since February, resulting in the largest European refugee crisis since World War II, so the so-called Kalush Orchestra''s presence in this competition deserves immense respect.

"I ask all of you, please assist Ukraine Mariupol, please assist us all stand right now!" screamed rapper Oleh Psiuk from the stage.

Two Eurovision viewers reacted to the band''s contribution and said, "Ukraine deserves to win this year," and "#Ukraine #EUROVISION Wow! Excellent entry. [Graham] Norton was wrong. If they do win it is not just sympathy, but a very useful song."

"When Ukraine wins, please come on guys.. you with me? Ukraine to win," says the winner, "Every single contestant will be really happy if Ukraine wins; I think that''s really beautiful and representative of what Europe gives (and against) at its very best," says Ukraine''s president. "We''ll hope it can be held in Ukraine," says one additional message of support.

Following its success with Lana Del Rey and Dua Lipa, the BBC announced in October last year how UK''s Eurovision act Sam Ryder and his song ''Space Man'' would be chosen.

"We''re really excited to be joining forces with the BBC for this event and will utilize Eurovision to authentically reflect and commemorate the rich, diverse, and world-class musical talents the United Kingdom is internationally renowned for," said TaP Music''s Ben Mawson.

The Eurovision Song Contest was aired on BBC One.
