Pryvit, Yevropa! One of the four countries to add a participant to the Eurovision 2019 list is Ukraine. After two semi-finals with 18 competing acts in total, the big time has come. The nation has to pick their next representative, among 6 qualified contestants!
Third and last round! The Grand Final of the Ukrainian annual selection is around the corner, with 6 acts ready to try their best and grab the Eurovision ticket to Tel Aviv! The show will be taking place at Palace of Culture “KPI” in Kyiv, host hosted by Sergey Prytula.

- Yuko – Galyna guliala
- Maruv – Siren song
- Brunettes Shoot Blondes – Houston
