The three semi-finals for Ukraine’s national selection for Eurovision Song Contest are already over and now six lucky contenders are getting ready for Feb. 25 to compete for their chance to represent Ukraine in May before a home audience in Kyiv.
Here’s the Kyiv Post’s guide for Eurovision fans to each of the six singers and bands.
Each finalist was judged by professionals including Eurovision 2016 winner Jamala, music producer Kostiantyn Meladze and singer and composer Andriy Danylko (better known as his drag stage persona Verka Serduchka). Feedback from an audience, who voted via text messages and a special app, is also helping find the best of the best. The winner will be announced shortly after the final on Feb. 25, then go on to represent Ukraine in May at the International Exhibition Center.
