Really liked "Time" last year, and after initially hating it grew to love "1944" as well. Ukraine are pretty consistent. Let's be honest, Verka Serduchka and Ani Lorak were robbed. They're the Sweden of the east!

Yes, that's been my dilemma as well! But I think I'm gonna back Tayanna even though her staging was a bit messy in the semi final, because Lelya is just so joyous and infectious (although I'm sceptical about a possible rumoured English version). The slightly bizarre lyrics of Melovin's song are just putting me off a little at the moment.

I think Melovin's probably the slight favorite to win this at the moment given he won the televote in the semi and was second with the juries. If she can win it though I'd prefer Tayanna as I think that'd really add some more variety to this year's lineup.

But given this is Ukraine I'm not going to rule out something winning by coming second on both and winning the ticket to Lisbon that way.

Verka just accused Tayanna of miming with the use of lots of Ukrainian expletives oop

Tayanna proved him wrong but singing part of the track again and an angry man shouting at Verka followed

Flashbacks to Linda Martin!

Angry man turns out to be Tayanna’s PR and he told Verka to go **** himself amongst other things

Tayanna wins the jury vote with Mélovin second! I assume Mélovin will have walked the televote so even it Tayanna gets second he'll still have won.

Miming or not (I think she was ooooop) Tayanna's song is a bop. Melovin's is really good as well so either would be great.

wow, i agree, both are pretty strong and serious contenders for Top 10 at Eurovision!

Ukraine is back at it after the traditional clunker of a 'home turf' entry

A reverse BQL for Tayanna, 2 jury wins in a row but two televote snubs in a row putting her 2nd twice in a row. But Melovin deserved this and Ukraine could be heading to the top 5!

poor Tayanna though, bitch can't get a break~

oh well, third time's the charm

and interestingly this is the first non-female export since the debut entry (plus Verka counting as female~)
