Ukraine and the Eurovision Song Contest
Ukraine took part in the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 2003. One year later, Ruslana striked the contest and managed to win the competition with Wild dances. Last year, Ukraine hosted the 50th Eurovision Song Contest.

To select a participant for the 2006 contest, Ukraine organised Ty-zirka, a format similar to You're a star. The popular Tina Karol won the competition with Show me your love.

Tina Karol
21-year old Tina Karol was relatively unknown last year, when she came 4th in the 15th national semifinal. After changing her name from Tina Liberman into Tina Karol, she scored several hits. Tina is also singing with the Ukrainian Armed Forces Song and Dance Ensemble.
