The first semi final of Ukraine’s national selection, Vidbir, just wrapped up and we have the first three acts that will perform in the grand final on February 24th.
Sadly, despite putting on a great show we had to say our goodbyes to six out of the nine competing acts.
1st semi final lineup
- Constantine – Misto
- Serhiy Babkin – Kriz tvoyi ochi
- Laud – Waiting
- Kazka – Dyva
- The VYO – Ng’a-ng’a
- Kozak System – Mamai
- Vilna – Forest song
- Pur:Pur – Fire
- The Erised – Heroes
Congratulations to Laud, The Erised and VILNA for managing to win over the juries & the public and secure a place in the final evening of the selection.
Ukraine at Eurovision
Despite a rather disappointing debut in 2003, Ukraine came back strong the following year winning the contest in 2004 with Ruslana’s “Wild Dances”. Their second win came exactly twelve years later in 2016 with Jamala’s “1944”.
On a less successful note, their worst scoring entry is last year’s host entry “Time” by O Torvald. Finishing 24th overall out of 26 competing countries.
However, Ukraine has had more ups than downs in the contest and we’re certain that Vidbir will be a success once more. Will it bring a third victory?
