Our third and final semi-final of Ukraine’s national selection for Eurovision 2017 is over and we now have our 6 finalists! One of them will go on to represent the host nation at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in May.

This evening saw the final 8 semi-finalists competing for a place in next Saturday’s final of the Ukrainian national selection for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

As with the previous 2 semi-finals, the 2 qualifiers of the evening were determined via a combined 50% televote and 50% jury vote.

Semi-final 3 results

The first votes of the evening came from the 3-member jury panel, consisting of members Konstantin Meladze, Andriy Danylko and Jamala, who together ranked Kadnay and O.Torvald as their favourites of the evening.

Combined together with the national televote, it was O.Torvald and Melovin who ranked as the top 2 of the evening and will join the previous semi-final qualifiers in next week’s final.
