Ukraine: The Kalush Orchestra will compete with live on tape video, except the war is over by May!

We had a significant last minute development recently. According to many websites, Ukraine will compete in Eurovision 2022, with the live on tape video of the Kalush Orchestra, unless the war ends by May, when the band will be able to go to Turin to sing live on stage. Orchestra reported on the issue:

Despite the fighting, the KALUSH Orchestra will record their performance in a safe place, which will be sent to the organizers of the song contest, and in case of our victory over the occupiers by May, our delegation will go to Italy and sing live all over Europe!

Thus, after yesterday’s confirmation by the Italian organizers that Ukraine will take part in the contest, despite the Russian invasion, now the way of participation of the Kalush Orchestra has been clarified. In the next few days, the Ukrainian band will have to videotape the live on tape video of their participation and send it to the EBU.

Simona Martorelli (Rai’s director of international relations) said in a statement on Monday (March 14th) that Ukraine’s public television would normally take part, while she was also impressed by their compliance with all the deadlines.

The Ukrainian delegation has confirmed its presence and so far has met all the deadlines. It is also preparing to make the backup video of the show, which is requested by all delegations in case the delegation or part of it cannot be presented in Turin.

With Stefania constantly dropping their odds on bets and being the first favorite to win, the Ukrainians seem to have thought of every detail to ensure their presence in Turin, despite the Russian invasion of the country, for three weeks.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the updates related to our favorite contest!
