What a beautiful voice, too bad for the Russians that found it offensive.

Jamala of Ukraine on Sunday won the immensely popular Eurovision Song Contest with a somber, controversial tune that evokes Moscow's deportation of members of her Crimean ethnic group during World War II.

She sang "1944," a song about the deportation of Crimean Tatars by the Soviet Union on orders of Josef Stalin. Her performance also was considered a strong rebuke to Russian President Vladimir Putin's 2014 military push into Ukraine, according to European media reports. Russia annexed Crimea.
Russian state media this week called the song anti-Russian; Moscow said it violated Eurovision rules.

Contest officials ruled the song didn't breach rules preventing "lyrics, speeches or gestures of a political or similar nature."
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko tweeted his congratulations to Jamala.

Glad the officials stood their ground and didn't care what the Russian bullies had to say.


Russia is threatening to boycott the competition next year, claiming the song should have been disqualified as being political.
