Ukraine, the land of Eurovision legends like Ruslana and creative trainwrecks like Svetlana Loboda, will stage its national selection tomorrow at 12:15pm Ukraine time / 11:15 CET. You can watch a live stream of the contest on Eurovision.tv.
But you don’t have to wait until then to check out this year’s contestants. You can listen to all of the finalists by clicking here. You can also watch the videos of most of the acts below. Unfortunately not all of them are readily available on Youtube.
It’s gonna be hilarious, y’all. The Anna Maria duo are playing the sisterly love card like Slovakia’s TWiiNS did back in 2011. A contestant named Lisa Wassabi is presumably gonna bring some spice to the stage. And Victoria Petryk, a much larger version of JESC 2011 winner Anastasiya Petryk, is throwing down a dance number called “Love is lord.” It’s gonna be HOT. Contestant Natalia Valevska sums up our excitement: “All of your energy is taking me over/ looking so radiant about to take cover.” BRING IT UKRAINE!
