Earlier today, well above sea level in the mountain resort of Bukovel, Ukraine’s search for its 2014 Junior Eurovision representative came to an end, with Sympho-Nick winning the ticket to Malta.
Their song, “Priyde Vesna”, which translates as “Spring Will Come”, is an ethnic style ballad which showcases the trios’ fruity vocals. Their turquoise nightgowns and mystical background brought a little bedtime magic to the stage.
The trio, consisting of Sofia Kutsenko, Amalia Krymska, and Marta Rak, formed after winning the kids show “Music Academy Eurovision”. Today is their lucky day: they were given equal points by both the jury and televoting.

The show, crammed with folk ballads and occasional teenybopper jams, paid homage to beloved Ukraine. Kids know how to love!
As we previously announced, Ukraine 2013 representative Zlata Ognevich and one half of Eurovision 2011 winning duo Eldar Qasimov debuted their song “Ice and Fire”, while Gaia Cauchi performed the dance version of her winning song “The Start” – on playback! As it usually goes, Ukraine’s previous representative Sofia Tarasova was also an interval act, where she performed her new song.
