TVORCHI will represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) 2023. The band won the Vidbir this Saturday with the song Heart of Steel. This is the first confirmed song to compete in the contest scheduled for next May.
Summary of the show
Opening the show, all competitors performed together on stage, along with Pianoboy, performing the song Chervona kalyna.
After introducing the hosts and the three judges, the contest itself began. The first to take the stage was Moisei, while Tvorchi closed the running order.
After a break in the broadcast, the second segment began with the performance of Pianoboy with the song Trymaysya svoyikh. Then, Zlata Dziunka also took the stage to sing the song with which she represented Ukraine at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC) 2022 last Sunday: Nezlamna (Unbreakable).
Before the results were revealed, guest performances continued with Jamala (she sang Synu), before closing the public televoting lines. A special performance of Verka Serduchka followed, singing Ye Propozytsiya.
It was finally time to know the results. The jury awarded its maximum score of ten points to KRUTЬ. The public preferred TVORCHI, who with those ten points scored a total of 19 points and won Vidbir representing Ukraine at ESC 2023 in Liverpool.
