At Ukraine’s national selection for Eurovision 2014 Uli Rud sang about a flower and wore a lot of leather. Natalia Valevskaya wore lingerie and sang about love. Illaria wore an LED dress that screamed “Chernobyl” (You glow girl!) But in the end voters and a professional jury selected Maria Yaremchuk with her song “Tick-Tock”.
Maria captured 3,478 televotes, putting her well ahead of Victor Romanchenko, who only earned 1,170. Call it a landslide people.
Maria’s performance proves that black is back. She brandished a whip, wore a lot of leather, and played Dominatrix for her submissive dancers. Her lyrics don’t always make sense—You know When you talk, talk, talk You make me glow—but it’s all good fun.
What do you think of her performance?
