Ukraine: Results of the second semi-final
In the beginning of the show the jury member Konstantin Meladze emphasized that in this semi-final there were “all genres possible for the Eurovision Song Contest”. The show was opened by Arkadij Vojtjuk and his county folk entry Vse V Tobi in the Ukrainian language. New and unknown musicians stood on stage tonight: the band Peaks of Kings sang for the very first time in their life on the big stage. Japanda, three sisters, performed their very special colourful entry Anime. Also famous singers like NeAngely, ALLOISE and SunSay delivered great performances.
Tonight’s show was hosted by Dimitri Tankovich and Aleksander Pedan. Tonight’s finalists have been chosen by a combination of public and jury voting (50/50). The jury panel consisted of three well-known personalities: the producer and composer Konstantin Meladze; the winner of the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest Ruslana; and Andrdei Danilko, also known as Verka Seduchka who finished second in the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest with the entry Dancing Lasha Tumbai.
