@Jessica, why ESC authorities allowed Russia to participate in contest? there’s at least 4 countries who suffered annexation and armed conflicts (that still going) from Russia, they downed MH-17, downed plane with all Polish government on board and shoot everyone who survived the crash (Smolensk), they bully Baltic countries, Turkey, lands of Georgia, Azerbaijan, Moldova, Ukraine has been annexed. Song contest? with songs about peace? is not it would be simplier to just kick Russians from this event so everyone will feel at ease and will have no need to sing “political” song while being slaughtered by “peaceful” Russia?

@Jessica, you’re complaining that Ukraine sends “political” song? (it’s not political but based on historical events – can you feel the difference?). Tell me, if you touched Russia theme in your comment, why Russia need to send any political song if they feel themselves OK to kill innocent people, shell hospitals, kindergartens, they have sooo much fun and zero responsibility for it. Why they would bother to send a political song is they can send death? Today pro-russian rebel forces killed 3 or Ukrainian soldiers and injured 7. Do you think they need a political song for Europe to hear?… Read more »

I’ve listened to all of these songs….So my choice is JAMALA. Her incredible performance touched my heartstrings, it’s great when you can not only listen but FEEL special emoitions. It’s super awesome when you see not just a singer but something more…I mean when there is a MESSAGE to the world…So these deep emotins are priceless! Bravo Jamala & Good Luck!

Depending on their stage design and their outfits for the big stage in Stockholm, if the Hardkiss win, methinks they’ll easily get 150 before the real scoring begins. 200 is not out of the question. Did I miss something, or do they have an official music video for this song?

Jamala has to win.
Her song is so powerful and makes your spine tingle.
If MIKA Newton could come 4th in 2011 then by rights Jamala should be able to win Eurovision.
Although I miss the Ukrainian days of ‘Ve my guest’s or ‘Gravity’ I think 1944 is the perfect song for Ukraine.

I am quite surprised to see that people who hated Lisa Angell in Vienna would freaking love to see Jamala in Stockholm.
To be honest, I find so many similarities between both songs (quite slow, singer in black with a great voice, songs about the horror of wars etc…)

I have non-Eurovision-fan friends sharing ‘1944’ on Facebook. I love Jamala, I love the song, and I am hugely excited to see how it goes in Stockholm. Please send it, Ukraine!

It’s pretty much a given that Jamala, The Hardkiss and Sunsay will make up the top 3, the question is in what order. I think any of them can pull off a win, just like Russia and Azerbaijan won Eurovision without qualifying first from their semifinals, everything is possible.
I get the hype about 1944 and I wouldn’t be upset if Jamala won, but I just don’t like it, her singing gets on my nerves. Anyway, I’ll be satisfied with whomever wins for Ukraine, all 6 songs are interesting in their own way

It has to be Jamala! Best song and best vocals!!
I do not get The Hardkiss’ song what-so-ever! It just does nothing for me!
Jamala on the other hand, has a beautiful song and message and is sang the best, performed the best and just is the best! She sings it with real passion! It has to win!

I love The Hardkiss song, it’s a kinda different style than we are used to… But Jamala brings me goosebumps every single time I’m listening to her song…. her voice is so unique, performance and the song are very, very emotional, so I think she has a great chances to win….
I also like “Love Manifest” by SunSay, but it’s not that powerful for me like “1944”.

There is nothing controversial about Jamala`s song with respect to Russia. She is singing about deportation of crimean tatars that is also being stated by Russia to be criminal act by Stalin. So I don`t see why some russians are so excited about Jamala and her song. Maybe because she is from Crimea and do not support russians present annexation of Crimea. But it has nothing to do with her song or her as a singer and just her personal position, the same as all other candidates this yearr (maybe only SunSay is neutral about this). So once more –… Read more »

Jamala got 49.22% of the televote and Sun Say 53.03% in their respective semi-finals. Both got top points from jury AND televote and got a total of 18 points each and won their Semis. Jamala was up against The Hardkiss though and Sun Say had little competition of course. In the first Semi, The Hardkiss were totally annihilated by Jamala’s “1994”, 49.22%:16.03% in the televote and Jamala won the jury vote too; The Hardkiss came 3rd with the jury and 2nd in the televote. If you go by the Ukraine iTunes charts :- No.70 Jamala No. 92 The Hardkiss The… Read more »

I would be content with Jamala representing Ukraine, but I SO BADLY WANT THE HARDKISS to be the ones flying their flag in Stockholm. The song just pierces right through your soul (or mine at least). Jamala’s song took me a while to really feel its power but The Hardkiss just killed me on first listen.
