Dami Im Does Australia Proud At Eurovision

Ukraine has won the this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm, Sweden and in Australia all eyes were on Dami Im.

The Ukraine winner Jamala overtook Australia’s Dami Im in the last moment as the public vote came in.

Jamala’s politically charged lyrics have been causing tensions with neighbouring Russia, who were the bookmakers favourite to win but the European judges were not quite expecting the impact Dami Im from the other side of the planet would have.

Jamala won with a haunting rendition of the ballad 1944, a song about Joseph Stalin’s mass deportation in 1944 of entire ethnic Tatar population from Crimea, has been understood to parallel Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.

On winning Jamala said “I want peace and love for everyone!”.

Dami Im performed ‘Sound of Silence’.
