The country of contortionists, wild dancers, revolutionary anthems, tinfoil wrapped drag queens, men in boxes, hell machines, sand artists, giants and human sized hamster wheels are back after taking a year's break. The delectable Ryan has leaked me this to post here about the selection process:

QUOTE
Practically by the known Greek or Israeli scheme, when NF is run by the commercial broadcaster. STB will also bear all delegation costs. The agreement was signed for 3 years.

So far it is known only that there will be regional castings in 6 Ukrainian cities in December (artists should apply already with the potential entry), and then televised show of unknown number of heats

(this from the person who runs ESCKaz so a pretty reputable source)

Understandable enough given Ukraine's current political situation for them to hand the financial responsibilites to a commercial broadcaster. Hopefully we'll see a return to their usual fare of a batshit insane hot mess that gets polished up so much that come final night it slays the house down.

With their absence last year I had to rely on Electro Velvet being my home entry so it's great to see Ukrayina back!

Zlata has just released a brand new song and ooh look at the length of it, 2 minutes 57 seconds! ohmy.gif



It is quite amazing, would Zlata fancy trying her luck again this year?

It has apparently been confirmed by Mikhail Nekrasov (Zlata's producer) on VK today that that song will be going into the Ukraine selection, and there's a possibility of translating it into English. Although ESC Kaz remain unsure. Anastasiya Prikhodko is likely to enter as well!

In typical Ukrainian hot mess fashion, virtually everyone who's submitted a song have announced that they have through one form of social media or another. Among them are Zlata, as posted above, Viktoria Petryk (former NF contestand and older sister of the winner of JESC 2012) and hottest mess in the whole darn west NeAngely (maybe they've been learning to sing for the past two years?).

Viktoria's song is also already up on YouTube (from these two Swedish songwriters who have songs in what seems like every single country that accepts foreign composers)

Brunettes Shoot Blondes is an intriguing band name.

Intriguing band too, although probably not what you might want from a Ukrainian entry.



Pretty catchy tune from last year, had it around my head for a few weeks towards the end of the summer.

(hurrah for The Hardkiss being in as well)

Alongside NuAngels the other two favourites so far seem to be Jamala and The Hardkiss:





Both are very good too! Jamala's gave me goosebumps at the end - her song is about "the forceful deportation of Crimean Tatars from Crimea by the Soviet regime in 1944" - so so so much better than 'Smile' which I hated. NuAngels are my favourite of the three with Jamala second but Ukraine should be on to a great entry at this rate.

Jamala's song is incredible. If she wins and they do a Loïc-esque minimalistic but utterly effective number at Eurovision, it's a certain Top 10.

I don't believe she'll win though despite being one of the most promising modern Ukranian artists.


p.s.: nuangels can do rot in a cave with that attempt at a song especially after the marvellous 'courageous' a few years ago.

Surely Anastasia Prikhodko has already bought her way into victory?

Luckily they are only accepting one vote per phone number so it makes it more difficult, albeit still not impossible, to rig the vote! I guess this is why Jamala has been happy to return after what happened in the 2011 national final with her, Mika and Zlata.
