The Ukrainian people can now vote to select their national jury for Eurovision 2023 who will determine 50% of the votes from the country in the Grand Final. Here are the 10 candidates, with some Vidbir alumni.
Ukraine’s broadcaster Suspilne has just opened the voting that allows the people from Ukraine to select who they want to see represent the country’s jury for the Eurovision Song Contest 2023.
Starting today, they can vote who they want to see take part of the national jury for this year’s Eurovision, which takes place in Liverpool on May 9, 11 and 13.
10 candidates for the 2023 Ukrainian Eurovision jury
Ukrainians can now vote between 10 candidates and the top 5 will get to be part of the national jury for Eurovision 2023. Moreover, the person who’ll get the most votes will be the Head of the Ukrainian jury. If a candidate resigns, the person having the next highest number of votes will remplace them.
Here’s the list of the candidates for the Ukrainian jury for Eurovision 2023:
- ROXOLANA (Vidbir 2022, finalist)
- Olena Hrebenyuk (opera singer)
- Mykhailo Klymenko (singer, composer and producer)
- Amador Lopez (singer and choreographer)
- Tonya Matvienko (Vidbir 2016)
- Oleksandr “Fozzy” Sydorenko (singer, frontman of TNMK)
- Oleh Sobchuk (frontman of SKAI, Vidbir 2017)
- Svitlana Tarabarova (Vidbir 2016)
- Evgeny Khmara (composer and pianist)
- Olena Shoptenko (dancer and choreographer)
4 of the candidates participated in Vidbir, Ukraine’s national final. The voting takes place in the app Diia and will close on April 5.
As a reminder, the jury represents 50% of the votes in the Grand Final but won’t get to decide which countries qualify from both semi-finals this year, as a new rule has been introduced, unless there’s a technical issue, or any issue, with the televote in the semi-finals.
