ukraine national final semi final one poll

With so much news coming from Ukraine as the host broadcaster, their defense of the Eurovision crown has been going under the radar. The 24 semi-finalists were revealed in the middle of January, but few of them had released their songs until very recently. There was a lot of secrecy here, y’all!

The good news is that, over the last week, all eight acts have revealed their songs for Saturday’s semi final. So, with all the songs now available, we thought we’d see what you though about them. We’re launching a flash poll that will last for just under 24 hours, before tomorrow’s final at 18:00 CET.

With only two songs making it through to the final, it’s obviously going to be a hard decision. Who do you want to see making it through? You can find all eight songs below, then make sure to vote in our poll.

1. SKAI — All My Love For You

2. Roman Veremeychik & Lumiere — Make It Real

3. Monochromea — Blue Bird

4. Laliko — Sugar Whisper

5. Salto Nazad — O, mamo!

6. MamaRika — We Are One

7. Tayanna — I Love You

8. Arsen Mirzoyan — Geraldine

Those are the eight songs — so which is your favourite? You can vote for as many of them as you like, but remember that you can only vote once! We’ll be revealing the results just before tomorrow’s semi final. Make sure to let us know who you’re voting for in the comments below as well.

I don’t like any of them. Seems obvious Tayanna will qualify 1st. I will be happy when KUZNETSOV qualifies from his semi.

God, please no Tayanna!
What I’ve liked: “Blue Bird”, “Geraldine”, “?, ????!” is nice to listen to, but I seriously can’t imagine it at the Eurovision stage, “Make It Real” is okay

“Blue Bird” by Monochromea is an absolutely outstanding song! If this were put into a film, it would win an Oscar – it’s that good. I also like “Geraldine” because once you get past that hilarious cliche of the girl’s name being the actual refrain, it is actually sung quite well and is quite alright for a French song. So where do I stand on Tayanna? I think SHE is amazing, but the song itself is just another overdramatic sad ballad. And I don’t want this year to be full of these things, or it will be a ballad bloodbath!… Read more »

Not the best semifinal I’m afraid. From this bunch I pick 2 songs:

TAYANNA – I Love You (obviously the best song here)
Arsen Mirzoyan – Geraldine (nice song, bonus points for being in french)

Watch. Everyone will spew love for the big ballad from Tayanna but when it wins people will screech an hiss saying how bad this year is. So. Yeah hoping for Arsen an Laliko

Obviously Tayanna is my favorite, but as for the second choice, I’m feeling Skai or Laliko.

Tayanna ‘s I Love you is my favorite song and I’ve been listening to it obsessively. In fact, I think the Russian version (Osen) is better than the English version. Arsen Mirsoyan’s song is pretty amazing too. I think these two are gonna go through to the final and whichever of this two wins, I’ll be happy. Funny fact, if Arsen wins, he’ll be the third Armenian participant in the contest….so far.

@Kartveli Look honey, everybody has their own opinions, so don’t insult someone, and say that their opinion is rather terrible or horrible, because they’re not. Every person has a different perspective about a song than other people, and it’s fine for them to think differently. While Alex doesn’t like Tayanna’s song, YOU probably like it or love it. After all, if you look at the slogan this year, “Celebrate Diversity”, it’s better for everyone to be a bit different than others than to be the same. If everyone had the same opinions, wouldn’t it be boring, then? To add on,… Read more »

ALL MY LOVE FOR YOU is just boring. The singer’s voice reminded me of Hungary last year. MAKE IT REAL reminded me of sth else. I thought I was listening to a Weeknd song. BLUE BIRD is the first song I was interested in listening to. I love it! The music, the voice, everything. Though, I want to see that on stage. I don’t like SUGAR WHISPER, O MAMO and WE ARE ONE. TAYANNA’s song is another song that I enjoyed listening to. It’s a love ballad, strong, her voice is amazing! I also want to see this one on… Read more »

Wow only two songs qualify? I assumed it was three for some reason. TAYANNA will obviously come first, but the second qualifier is honestly pretty up for grabs

Arsen with his ‘Geraldine’ is the best option. A Ukrainian male (already some originality)))) with an Armenian surname singing a French chanson will be definitely a standout in eurovision.

Skai – All my love for you —-> 6/10 It’s very Nickelback meets 3 Doors Down…..So not right for 2017 BUT feels kinda nostalgic, the production isn’t cheap. ROMAN VEREMEYCHIK & LUMIERE —-> 7/10 Sounds kinda modern and current, I could hear this on the radio …..Very catchy but It’s just not EUROVISION … But since Eurovision isn’t the EUROVISION of 3 years ago, this could be refreshing and do well for the host. MONOCHROMEA — BLUE BIRD —–> 4/10 Very Amandine Bourgeois (France 2013) but I don’t find it as good as L’enfer Et Moi. LALIKO — SUGAR WHISPER… Read more »

I get the hype around Tayanna,it’s a good song,actually the best one form their selection,but it’s not a masterpiece tho,i prefer the original version much more,it’s more intresting that language and makes the song more mysterious,the only thing that I don’t like about that song are the lyrics,too cliche,but I don’t hate them:))))
Tayanna ftw! And it’s nice to see Max Barskih back,hope he will get the change to represent Ukraine one day!

“Make It Real” and “Geraldine” are far superior in this semi. I really really like both of them 🙂 Tayanna is ok too, but its really just another female ballad which we have heard many many many times before in Eurovision, and better as well.

Blue Bird should go to Eurovision and be placed to perform right after Finland’s Blackbird 😀

I voted for the songs that start quick with the lyrics part (songs 3 and 4). I never wait more than 15 secons to hear the lyrics.
This is why I like Il Volo – Grande Amore, they just start :
”Chiudo gli occhi e penso a lei
Il profumo dolce della pelle sua”
…… ”I close my eyes and I think about her, the sweet perfume of her skin”

It’s really funny to see such a disbalanced votes for Tayanna despite she has like the worst song of all.
