    Tina Turner has died at age 83. She teamed with husband Ike Turner for a dynamic run of hit records and live shows and survived her horrifying marriage to triumph in middle age with the chart-topping “What’s Love Got to Do With It." She was also known for such songs as “Proud Mary,” “River Deep, Mountain High” and “We Don’t Need Another Hero.” Her trademarks were her growling contralto, her bold smile and strong cheekbones, her palette of wigs and her muscular, quick-stepping legs. Turner's manager says she died Wednesday after a long illness in her home in Küsnacht near Zurich.

The English port city that gave the world The Beatles is using the contest to offer displaced Ukrainians a taste of home. Many pubs and venues are holding Eurovision parties, businesses fly blue and yellow Ukrainian flags, and a Ukrainian village inside the waterfront Eurovision fan zone dishes out Ukrainian food. One element that will be missing, though, is President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Eurovision organizers barred him from addressing the Saturday final of the pan-continental music competition. The European Broadcasting Union says letting Zelenskyy participate would breach “the nonpolitical nature of the event.”

      The 67th Eurovision Song Contest will soon reach its climax with a grand final broadcast live from Liverpool. There will be catchy choruses, a kaleidoscope of costumes and tributes to the spirit of Ukraine, which won last year's competition. Twenty-six countries have made it to Saturday’s final at the Liverpool Arena. Each competing act must sing live and stick to a three-minute limit, but otherwise is free to create its own staging.
