From 18 semi-finalists, six finalists have been selected to compete at Ukraine’s national selection for Eurovision 2018. But only one act can win the honour of representing their country in Lisbon in May.

To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – will preview and review each of this year’s finalists. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Ukraine!

Our jury for this edition consists of 10 jurors who come from Australia, Georgia, Hungary, New Zealand, Romania, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming week. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
