english songs are the only songs which can become global hits

eurovision needs to be another talent show like the voice or x factor

Have you noticed the betting every year sets up for political odds.
This year yet again Ukraine favourites followed by Israel?
Bit sad really
Would be nice if the odds would be withheld until all the songs were released so it could be judged on just that and not influencing people to follow what they bet

I wish stasya would have made it through to the final, her song was my favorite. Anka was my 2nd choice though, so I’m somewhat happy anyway

It’s such a shame that there was only one wildcard, both Anka and Stasya were clear standouts last night. But I’m happy Anka made it anyways! 🙂

I HAD hoped for Carpetman. A kind of jazzy modern song is something i’d be open to Ukraine to experiment with.

A shame PARFENIUK didn’t make it as he was my favorite, but ANKA was a close second! Ukraine’s already delivering such quality for only a wildcard round, I’m sure the rest of the Vidbir line-up will be even better

Same favourite.
But Anka was one of the top three for me so not too bad.

It’s a shame that the top two couldn’t qualify. ANKA and STASYA were both clear stand-outs.

I thought we weren’t going to know the wildcard entry until the end of December. Well good luck to everyone.
