Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022

Ukraine participated in and won the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy. Alina Pash was set to represent the country with the song "Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors", after being chosen by the Ukrainian broadcaster Public Broadcasting Company of Ukraine (UA:PBC) via the national selection Vidbir. Following controversy regarding her travel history, Pash's status as a legitimate participant of Vidbir was challenged, which resulted in her participation being ceased by the broadcaster as well as her withdrawal. The runner-up of Vidbir, Kalush Orchestra with the song "Stefania", was chosen as the Ukrainian entry for the contest in Pash's place. Kalush Orchestra eventually became the sixty-ninth winner of the Eurovision Song Contest, winning the public vote with 439 points, the most televoting points received in the contest's history to date, and coming in fourth place in the jury vote with 192 points, for a total tally of 631 points.
