    This is the bookmaker-favourite to win on Saturday, and I don't mind, it's pretty great! Reminds me a bit of their song from last year, in a good way. (Actually, I think it's the same guy, Ihor Didenchuk, who plays the flute in both performances.) And if this wins, I think it's the first time a rap song wins the ESC? Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

      A Wiwibloggs blog post back in 2014 seems to think the closest is Turkey's 2003 winning entry Everyway That I Can by Sertab Erener. I had a listen and it seems a stretch, but there we go.
