Kalush Orchestra, Ukraine’s entry into Eurovision, is tipped to win it all

When we watch stories of war on TV, we tend to think that bombs are falling and guns are fighting 24/7. That’s not the case. There are long, long stretches where nothing happens. And even though civilians are living through hell, much of regular life continues as normal. Somehow.

In the case of Ukraine, the country still has an entry competing in the Eurovision song contest. Not only that, but Kalush Orchestra, a rap group. is favoured to win the whole thing. Think fan voting will swing their way?
