Lebanese-born British singer-songwriter Mika, Italian TV presenter Alessandro Cattelan and Italian singer Laura Pausini hosted this year’s Eurovision Song Contest from Turin, Italy. However, fans have hit out at Mika as he appeared to give Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra the microphone before changing his mind during a break from the performances.
After 22 acts had performed, Mika joined the artists in the green room.
The singer-songwriter asked Portugal’s MARO how they were feeing about the night.
He went on to speak to Romania’s entry WRS before turning his attention to Ukraine.
Mika said: “On this side we have Ukraine and we are very happy to be here with you and for you to be here with us.”
