A Ukrainian prankster is facing up to five years in prison for gatecrashing a Eurovision performance by 2016 winner Jamala, and mooning the audience.
Draped in an Australian flag, the prankster was Ukranian Vitaly Sediuk, who has form in his celebrity stunts.
“He was detained for 72 hours, until the court comes up with a sentence – a fine or up to five years in jail,” Arsen Avakov, Ukraine’s interior minister, wrote on Facebook.
“Now, this shame of our country can practice his hobby while in police custody.”
Last year, Sediuk famously ambushed Kim Kardashian in Paris. At the 2013 Grammy Awards, he stormed the stage and accepted the prize on Adele’s behalf.
In the replay last night, SBS sought to distance itself from the man in the Aussie flag, telling viewers he was not with us.
