UKRAINE / PRESS RELEASE – The public broadcaster of Ukraine UA: PBC named 27 participants that entered the long list of the National Selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
“Because of the pandemic, the National Selection has not been held since 2020. Over this time, Ukrainian musicians have obviously accumulated energy and materials, so the number of good applications was very big! Still, there have not been many arguments among the organizing committee members up to this point, and the longlist was formed quite quickly. The fight is for the 8 positions in the final, so the hottest arguments are ahead!” commented Yaroslav Lodygin, member of the Managing Board of UA: PBC in charge of television.
The list of 8 finalists will be announced next week. Also, the draw for the running order in the final will be held.
The grand final of the National selection for Eurovision 2022 will be held in the format of a live show on UA: PERSJYI TV channel on 12 February at 18:00 CET.
