UKRAINE – The public broadcaster UA:PBC announced the jury to select the song that will represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021. The jury includes Ukrainian stars and established music industry experts.
The jury members are:
- Jamala – singer, winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2016;
- Yevhen Filatov – producer, leader of The Manaken band;
- Ruslan Kvinta – music producer, composer;
- Yaroslav Lodygin – member of the Managing Board of UA: PBC in charge of television;
- Dmytro Khorkin – member of the Managing Board of UA: PBC in charge of radio.
According to the song selection rules, the band Go_A as the representatives of Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will present at least two songs for the jury selection.
Each jury member will evaluate each submitted song. Points from the jury will be added into a rank. The song with most points from the jury will win the selection.
If two or more songs get an equal number of points, the winning song will be decided by majority voting of the jury (more than 50% of the jury members).
One jury member can vote for a song only once.
The results will be announced by 10 March.
Due to the cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2020, Go_A will represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2021 with a new song, as was declared last March.
Earlier this month Go_A released their song SHUM.
