Ukrainian broadcaster NTU has announced the artists that will be battling it out for the chance to represent the country at Copenhagen next year. The national takes place on 21 December and Ukraine will be the first country to select their artist and song.

There are 20 artists in total and after they were announced, a random draw took place to determine the running order each artist will perform in the national final, which you can see below.

  1. Duet Anna-Maria with “5 Stars Hotel”
  2. Roman Polonskij with “Wanted Dead Or Alive”
  3. ULI RUD with “Tswetok (Flower)”
  4. Marietta with “It’s My Life”
  5. Stas Shurins with “Why”
  6. Anatoli Shparyov with “Waiting For You”
  7. Nataliya Valevska with “Love Makes You Beautiful”
  8. Lissa Wassabi with “No Fear”
  9. Volodymyr Tkachenko with “Buty Tam De Ty (To Be Where You Are)”
  10. Shanis with “Moya Dusha (My Soul)”
  11. Victoria Petryk with “Love Is Lord”
  12. Evgen Litvinkovych with “Strelyanaya Ptitsa (Wounded Bird)”
  13. Band NeAngely with “Courageous”
  14. Illaria with “I’m Alive”
  15. Tetyana Shyrko with “Let Go”
  16. Tania BerQ with “Believe Me”
  17. Maria Yaremchuk with “Tick-Tock”
  18. Victor Romanchenko with “Na Krayu Propasti (On The Brink Of The Abyss)”
  19. Anna Hodorkovska with “Yesli Yest Lyubov (If There Is Love)”
  20. Denis Lyubimov with “Love”

A few familiar stand-out names on the list includes Maria Yaremchuk, who finished fifth on this year’s national final and Victoria Petryk, runner-up on the 2008 Junior Eurovision Song Contest who’s also the sister of last year’s winner Anastasiya Petryk.

We also love that there is a Ukrainian contestant named Lissa Wassabi. Is she gonna bring some spice, y’all?

56 entries made it to the pre-selection process that took place this weekend. A jury, consisting mainly of four experienced music professionals, helped choose the 20 entries for the finalists.

Great tune by Victoria, a bit weaker than expected though ;[ I wanted to save them all before listening to the show, but had to listen to a couple due to the buzz they’re getting lol.

My favourites so far…
1) Tetyana Shyrko with “Lets Go”
2) Stas Shurins with ”Why”
3) ULI RUD with “Budapest”
Honourable Mention goes to Viktoria Petryk. The song is ok, but I don’t think it’ll win.
Every other song that’s been released so far I hate, so the only ones I enjoy are the ones that I’ve mentioned.
