While MARUV may have won Ukraine’s national final with her number “Siren Song”, she won’t be going to Eurovision. Broadcaster UA:PBC now has a vacancy that must be filled. So who should get that ticket to Tel Aviv and represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2019?
The obvious choice would be for the broadcaster to select another act from the grand final of Vidbir 2019. But who should they pick? Have a look at the five remaining acts and tell us who you think should be Ukraine’s act for Eurovision 2019. You can vote for as many acts as you like, but you can only vote once — so make it count!
Anna Maria – “My Road”
The sisterly duo did not make a good impression with the grand final jury, who ranked them last. The twins were also ranked second to last with the public televote, placing last overall.
Brunettes Shoot Blondes – “Houston”
The indie rock band got off to a good start, placing second in their semi-final. However they may have been upstaged by their tricked-out piano at the grand final, as they placed fourth overall.
Freedom Jazz – “Cupidon”
Freedom Jazz made an impact with the jaunty song, colourful staging — and because one of their singers was heavily pregnant. Freedom Jazz were the jury’s favourite and place second overall. As they are the runners-up, they could be seen as the obvious pick for Eurovision.
KAZKA – “Apart”
KAZKA was a fan favourite coming into the competition, however lacklustre live vocals diminished some of the support for “Apart”. Still, KAZKA placed second in the televote and third overall.
YUKO – “Galyna guliala”
The electronic folk duo YUKO was the third favourite act of the jury, but the least favourite of the public. They placed fifth overall.
