The Eurovision Song Contest, held this year in Liverpool, UK, was won by singer Lorin Talhaoui, better known as Loreen. She represented Sweden and performed with the song Tattoo.
The jury and viewers awarded Lauryn 583 points.
This is not the interpreter’s first victory at Eurovision. In 2012, she also received the main award.
This year’s top three finalists also included Finnish rapper Käärijän with 250 points and Israeli Noa Kirel with 242.
Initially, Eurovision was to take place in Ukraine, but the event’s organizer, the European Broadcasting Union, changed the venue to the UK.
In addition, the contest organizers banned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy from giving a speech there. According to them, political statements are against the rules of the demonstration.
