Tomorrow, the Eurovision 2016 national selection for Ukraine will come to a close. Earlier this week, we put the question out to you–who should get the honour to represent Ukraine in Stockholm this year? The people have spoken and the result is clear! After counting a massive 2,765 votes, it’s time to reveal the winner…
First place with 40.87% of the vote went to The Hardkiss with their song “Helpless”. Prior to the Ukraine selection even beginning, The Hardkiss were a huge favourite amongst fans. Their more subdued song “Helpless” surprised us at wiwibloggs, and saw them score a healthy second place in the first semi final.
Second place went to the beautiful Jamala with her song “1944”. Emotionally charged and powerful, “1944” was a favourite in our poll as well as with the Ukrainian public, after gaining first place in the first semi final with a huge 49.22% of the vote. Jamala received a total of 867 votes in our poll, thus giving her 31.36% of the vote and second place.
Lucky number three went to the gorgeous ladies of NuAngels with their song “Higher”. These ladies bring the power in their song for Ukraine, and you guys are lapping it up. After receiving 12.3% of the votes, NuAngels comfortably sit in third place.
Very closely behind is SunSay with his song “Love Manifest”. The winner of the second semi final fell just short of NuAngels and received 12.08% of the votes in our poll, thus resulting in fourth place.
Quite a large gap separates fourth and fifth place in our poll. Fifth place went to Pur:Pur with her song “We Do Change”. The lady with the headpiece that looks like a bowling pin made of chicken wire, left an impression on 52 voters, giving her 1.88% of the vote and fifth place.
And lastly in the Ukraine selection is Brunettes Shoot Blondes with their song “Every Monday”. These guys didn’t leave much of an impact on you guys–with only 42 votes, or 1.51% of votes going to the group, resulting in sixth place.
