Ukraine loves Eurovision and Eurovision loves Ukraine. And today Kyiv delivered its latest love letter in the form of the ten songs competing to win Vidbir 2023 — its national selection.

We’ll have to wait until December 17 to hear the 10 acts perform their songs live. But the studio cuts make it clear how Russia’s ongoing war has compelled artists to contemplate loss and trauma, but also resilience and hope. These artists will not be silenced.

As Vidbir musical director Dmytro Shurov — aka Pianboy — said last month, these finalists have pushed through the most difficult circumstances of their lives to create their art. He said:

“I am very grateful to all the musicians that managed to do an important job in really difficult circumstances, both emotionally and physically, often under sirens and shellings, in basements and with no power supply. The task was complicated as, besides writing a good song that would touch people, recording it in a studio and performing it live at auditions, the participants had to comply with all the rules of the national selection.”

Below you can listen to each of the ten finalists. We’ve listed them in the running order, which the Ukrainian broadcaster Suspilne released earlier today.

I do not want to be pessimistic, so here it goes: we have already listened to the winner of Eurovision 2023! The war in Ukraine is unlikely to end by May 2023; even less so, it is unbelievable for the country to be rebuilt by the time the contest will happen, just as millions of Ukrainians who fled to Europe will still be in Europe and will eagerly vote for Ukraine. Sympathy votes are on the way; deal with it. That is simply the fact, which is unfortunate given the ESC’s evolution into a quality competition over the last decade.… Read more »

I think that comment is fair enough. Also, I still think that the best song won this year. And if Ukraine wins again it still might be the best song that wins. There are some really good songs in Vidbir 2023. The thing is that we don’t know if Ukraine won because of the war or if it still might have won. It would have placed high in any case.  Ultimately for me, it isn’t the most important thing who wins the contest – many times it hasn’t been my favorite song that has won in the end. For me,… Read more »

Not necessarily. We have no way of knowing or even predicting that since there isn’t a single song selected yet for Eurovision 2023. Though I have to say there are a couple of songs in this bunch that may have winning potential. Maybe there’s not anything as good as “Stefania”, but then again that was one of the best winning songs there has been, if not the best. Can’t really say much about who’s gonna win before we know all the songs competing since this is a song contest.

Alright, the Eurovision national final season has finally begun and I am so excited! What do I think about the ten songs competing for Ukraine? Overall, I think it’s a really good selection, considering it’s a miracle they even produced any songs for it due to the situation. I admit I don’t hear a winner contender among the bunch (which is probably a good thing for Ukraine, imagine winning again and you still can’t host), but there is nothing embarrassing in there. At worst, there might be a couple of merely average songs, but Ukraine is in good shape. Here… Read more »

Her song is definitely the one with the most views, at 245K views as of the time of this post. The rest aren’t anywhere close to reaching the 100k mark, which only Fiinka being the second most viewed at 85K (as of the time of this post). It’s definitely Jerry Heil’s to lose and I wouldn’t be surprised if she does end winning on the 17th. And to think she’s the same singer who performed that awful vegan song in 2020. She’s definitely matured in the last two years.

For me, it stands between; 2TONE – ?????? (Flower), and TVORCHI – Heart Of Steel.Jerry Heil just sounded like a (worse) copy version of Kalush Orchestra’s Stefania. And if there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s when countries enter a song that sounds (too much) like the previous year’s winner, it’s gonna fail. People want something new. Otherwise, what’s the point of the contest if it’s always just the same old, same old songs?

It’s not a good idea to send two songs with similar elements in a row. While Stefania and Dovbush are different songs, their mixed use of folk and rap/hip-hop might be seen as too similar to the worldwide audience. Better to send something different.

It’s also the Vidbir song with the most views so far (over 116k as of the time of this post) and it is the only song to have reached over 100 K views. The rest of the songs aren’t even close to that, so I take it as a sign that this is probably the favorite most likely the one to go to eurovision. And I’m OK with that. I can’t believe that this is the same artist has sent that awful vegan song almost three years ago. I agree this probably isn’t going to get Ukraine a consecutive victory,… Read more »

But i LOVE “Heart of Steel” – such a well produced song. Though Jerry Heil is pretty good as well and the production is so interesting. FIINKA is like a perfect mix between Manizha and Konstrakta and would definitely bring an interesting visual performance, and Oy Sound System is very intense, and in my opinion in a good way! Love these 5 songs! Demchuk’s song is so good as well,… Read more »

Personally, I think it’s a pretty good selection. Nothing stands out to me as an absolute dud. Which is honestly unusual. Most selections end up with a few, even the smaller ones. Nothing stands out as a clear winner to me either, but when selections are obviously lopsided, it’s no fun. I’m curious what the live performances will be like, especially with this year’s venue being a subway station. The artists have their work cut out for them this year, and I’m interested to see how it goes.

There is a lot of good songs but until I see the performances I don’t hear a clear favourite. It seems they are looking to the grand final with quality but not to win, which is totally fine. Also, no clear political ones but I’m sure people… Read more »

And here we go again. As usual, a very professional and balanced line-up in Vidbir. I won’t lie, this time I haven’t instantly fallen in love with any entry, but I can see some growers in the mix. I suppose Jerry Heil is the frontrunner (popularity, message, contemporary but accessible sound) and I would be more than fine with that outcome. But at a first listen, FIINKA has the song who got more from my attention. I also like TVORCHI and KRUTb, even if I was more impacted by their previous efforts.

I agree, the impact is perhaps not as immediate as it was over the last years and the production quality isn’t quite as high, but given the circumstances, it’s kind of a miracle that they managed to put together a qualification round at all.

That’s true, having a national final under their circunstances is already an impressive move.

Vidbir will keep its status as one of my favorite national finals (I would just appreciate a little less drama this time). About the elections, let’s say it took a month longer than it should (and my nails are still recovering from it), the task ahead of the new government is monumental, but it will be good to get into a new year finally… Read more »

I’d say that it’s a weak selection for Ukraine for the simple fact that when they have what is a “good” selection for them, they have a potential Eurovision winner or top five song in there. They don’t this time around. It’s similar to their 2020 selection and not just because a lot of the same names are involved. I ranked the Jerry Heil song second in the selection and suspect that it may get chosen but honestly, I find the 2Tone song the best. It feels very much like a hybrid A Dal entry.

I’ve spent very lovely 28:30 minutes listening to the Ukranian national selection, the ineugural one of the 2023 season. It’s heartwarming to see how these artists are capable of creating interesting music even in the darkest of times. Much to my surprise, not everything sounds heavy and sorrowful. There’s a lot of diversity. No matter who wins, Ukraine will have at least an okay, if not even amazing song in the finals.

OY Sound System’s song is very intriguing. It’s one of those songs that will either flourish or flop when performed live. Also, Ukraine can take a risk with their entry this year since they automatically qualify – I think OY Sound System are the perfect risk!

Personally, I’d choose either “Dovbush” or “When God shut the door”. Although you could say the latter is a little Eurovision box ticking – an upbeat song with a little folky chanting, a bridge in Ukrainian and a nice little coloratura flourish in the chorus – it still works very well and sits much better with me than her last attempt from 2020. This would certainly do well at Eurovision, as would “Dovbush” which is the right mixture between mainstream modernity and accessible quirkiness. Krut’ certainly has a sound, but I have to say that “99” was in my opinion… Read more »

It is interesting that you make the comparison because in some ways when God shut the door is Jerry Heil’s 1944, in the both she and Jamala first entered with silly songs, and then their second songs are much more serious due to the current context. However, I think the song feels like a pale imitation of 1944 to me, but it’s not a terrible song. I just don’t think it’s a masterpiece. Still, I will be fine with Jerry going to eurovision, because it is the best song of this bunch, even if it’s not a masterpiece like previous… Read more »
