The European Broadcasting Union has released a statement regarding a stage invasion which occurred during Jamala’s interval act.
The statement reads:
A person took to the stage at the beginning of Jamala’s performance of I Believe in U at tonight’s Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv. He was quickly removed from the stage by security and out of the arena. He is currently being held and questioned by the police at the venue police office.
The last time a person gained access to the stage at the Eurovision Song Contest was in 2010 during the Spanish performance in the Grand Final. Jimmie Jump joined backing dancers on the stage before being chased off the stage by security guards in the venue.
