Today, on May 9, the first 15 participants of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 presented their performances on stage in Liverpool. The first semi-final was closed by the outrageous Finnish representative Käärijä with the dynamic song Cha Cha Cha.
Bookmakers predict the musician to take second place. OBOZREVATEL offers to take a look at one of the analysts' favourites, who shocked the audience with his eccentric performance and track.
The track Cha Cha Cha tells the listener how to let go of everyday worries and enjoy life.
Käärijä has surprised European fans with his outrageous antics before, so his crazy performance in the semi-finals was no surprise to anyone.

Käärijä is a Finnish rapper, singer and songwriter. In 2020, he released his debut album Fantastista. The musician is famous for his energetic and live shirtless performances. He is not limited to just one genre, preferring to combine elements of different styles.
