Yesterday NTU shortlisted the 67 submitted songs to 20 that will compete in the national final scheduled for tomorrow. Follow the link here to view the 20 second preview clips of each song.

Ukraine which originally already picked the artist and song decided to hold another selection. Vasyl Lazarovich who was internally selected to represent the country is also in the competition with the same song he won in the previous selection held last month. In the auditions held yesterday he performed the song I Love you in the native language.

Tonight at 22:00 CET “Shuster Live" (TRK Ukraine) will broadcast all 20 songs in full. Tomorrow during a gala concert which will be broadcast live on Ukrainian television broadcaster NTU at 19:00 CET, a national final will be held, where tele-voting alone will determine the winner.

The country will select just on time before handing their entry in the Head of delegations meeting to be held early next week in Oslo. Ukraine will compete in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest to be held on 27th May 2010.
