The Ukrainian entry, Kalush Orchestra, will offer tough competition, currently standing as the top favourites to snag first prize. TikTok sensation Mr Ryder is representing the UK with his song “Space Man”, and is currently the second favourite to win. Hopes of a British win were bolstered during Friday afternoon’s rehearsal when Mr Ryder was called as the winner. The iconic competition will conclude tonight in Turin’s PalaOlimpico – and will air from 8pm.
