Eurovision 2022: Fans ‘disturbed’ by ‘Pennywise’-inspired performance by Finland

The Eurovision Grand Final is upon us – and the “strange” performances have begun.

This year’s event is being hosted by Italy after Italian rock band Maneskin won the 2021 competition. Twenty-six artists have flocked to Turin to represent their countries in the grand final.

Fans were left “disturbed” by Finland’s entry.

Finnish rock band The Rasmus – behind the 2003 hit song “In the Shadows” – performed their song “Jezebel”.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their reactions to the song.

“Well this is deeply disturbing, isn’t it?” wrote one person. Another wrote: “Finland, I don’t like this.”

Others spoke about the opening of the performance, which began with lead singer Lauri Ylönen standing in a yellow rain jacket holding a yellow balloon in an apparent reference to Stephen King’s IT villain, the clown Pennywise.

One person wrote: “Finland be like Pennywise,” while another added: “Finland knows how to start,” accompanied with a GIF of Pennywise.

“Finland giving me them penny wise vibes. Unreal and unexpected as always. Fabulous Finland,” wrote someone else.
