On the evening of February 22 we’ll be seeing yellow and blue. That’s because Ukraine — a frequent threat at the Eurovision Song Contest — will decide who will represent them at Eurovision 2020. Six acts are set to compete in the final of Vidbir 2020, but only one can win it all. And if it were up to our readers  Khayat would take home the trophy. They’re song is “Call for Love” and y’all have most definitely answered.

Khayat is your favourite to win Vidbir 2020

Following the second semi-final, we asked you to start voting for your favourite to win.

After counting 2,722 votes, we can reveal that you chose Khayat with “Call For Love”. The second semi-final qualifier earned a total of 1,010 votes, which is 37.11% of all votes cast.

Following up in second place is Go_A. Their song “Solovey” collected 928 votes, or 34.09% of all votes cast.

After that a bit of a gap opens up. Some distance behind is Krutь with “99”. Her track gathered 363 votes, which equals 13.34% of all votes cast.

Tvorchi, Jerry Heil and David Axelrod bring up the rear with their entries “Bonfire”, “Vegan” and “Horizon”. Tvorchi collected 203 votes (7.46%), Jerry Heil’s “Vegan” is at 169 votes equaling 6.21%, and finally “Horizon” got 49 votes resulting in 1.80% of all votes cast.

I an rooting for Khayat, but I would be good with Go_A as well. Unless they translate the song to English, that is.

I have a feeling if GoA wins she won’t smile! Though if she did win it might make her realise that life doesn’t have to be so serious! Khayat should win but the live performance is not as good as the studio version

It’s Krut’ or Tvorchi for me. The rest are massively overrated.

Tvorchi? you must be deaf on 2 ears. they’re horrible again, even worse than in semi final

Ukraine have really impressed me this year. I enjoy both the top 2 here, they would both be great for Rotterdam. There were also some great songs in the semis, and even if I feel physically sick listening to Jerry Heil, I can still acknowledge it’s a well-produced song and will have its audience. Plus, the presentation of the songs live is gorgeous, one of the best this season. So all in all, well done Ukraine, you’ve done a great job!

Indeed. I have enjoyed the music at Vidbir this year, which came as a pleasant surprise to me.
It’s a strong final line-up, so best of luck to all.

the song of Go_A and Krut have a real soul – khayats song not because it is average pop with white singing as a gimmick.
i’m still thinking, that the white angel will deliver best in rotterdam.
i hope for Krut and if not Krut for Go_A as winner. 🙂
the ukrain jury will be very important – prefer they true magic music or average fastfood pop like khayat or tvorchi?
can remember melovin 2 years ago – he won with average pop against maybe better option vilna and get spanked in the ESC final.

Melovin won because of his fanbase, and his pop was respectable enough for the juries not to thrash him at Vidbir. That factor won’t be as prevalent this time.

I might be alone in the fandom but aligned with Ukranians and I really like Tvorchi.
Theres personality and it’s like they are just there performing without worrying or trying too hard which makes the appeal.
I really like Krut as well

You aren’t alone. I like both Krut’ and Tvorchi. Don’t see the hype about Go-A or Khayat. Probably it’s their PR machine.

I’m not a trained singer or musician so perhaps I’m not qualified to comment and it might just be me but……. Khayat sounds really bad live, right?

No, he actually sounds quite good. He has some enunciation problems, but I’ve heard worse, you can still understand what he’s saying. But he hits his notes and is on the pitching key.

He is very overrated.

If either Solovey or Call For Love makes it to Rotterdam, I can see Ukraine’s perfect qualification record being smashed to pieces.
Not bad songs, sound much better on Spotify than live. However, these are the two frontrunners and their live performances were appalling.

no he doesn’t, song is in english and that is why it is a snooze i’m thinking about not watching the contest if all of you basics are gonna make the most generic contest to date 🙁 and i am a huge huge eurovision fan but i’m not feeling it this year so far if i wanna listen to english songs i can do so rest of year on radio with all those random english songs eurovision should be more with own language, and also feeling like olympic games for music, sharing different cultures through music and not feeling that… Read more »

I completely agree with the poll results, especially the top three.
If you give me my odd fascination with David Axelrod’s voice (and hair), I’m happy.

Typical tasteless eurovision song … Sorry

Hello hi

Hello hi

Yes I agree and looks like it’s true judging from the negative reaction to your comment .. this is an absolutely awful song and reminds me of the dark era of Eurovision type song from 2001 to 2009… to be fair the whole Ukrainian selection this year is awful…

Yes. It’s about time Ukraine stays in the semi.

I thought they learned their lesson in 2017 when they sent the wrong act to represent them.
