NTU's plans go on
Ukraine: National final to take place tomorrow
Criticism to the Ukrainian national selection method for this year's Eurovision Song Contest came from Anastasía Prijodko, now contestant at the Russian national final. Anastasia's manager, Yelena Mozgovaya, claimed that both the national broadcaster and the jury members did not use trustworthy methods to choose the contestants at the country's national final for Eurovision. Then, Anastasia decided to withdraw from the competition and join Russia's national selection.
Therefore, the Ukrainian final will be held tomorrow, March 8th, at 17:00 CET, as initially scheduled. The show will take place at the Ukraina Palace, in Kiev, and will be broadcast on NTU's first channel 1TV. A webcast will be available as well. The winner will be chosen by a mixture of jury vote and public televote, with priority given to the jury in case of tie.
The running order for the show is as follows:
Lenara - Flash
Hot Chocolate - Kiss
Tetyana Bryantseva - Sweet and sugar baby
Denis Barkanov - You are my love and pain
Zaklyopki -Time is up
Nataliya Volkova - Gush
4 Kings - Tearin’ up my heart
ANA -You’re like a paradise
Svitlana Loboda - Be my Valentine
GODO - Olvidamos
NikitA - Beauty saves the world
Olexander Panaiotov - Superhero
Ira Poizen - You freed me
Kishe - Midnight
Tori Joy - Smile

Superhero is song for losers like you
And NIKITA's song is a PLAGIAT to C.C.CATCH!
The ALEX. PANAYOTOV's song is a PLAGIAT to BRITNEY SPEARS WOMANAIZER!!!
OLEXANDER PANAIOTOV ftw!
Superhero is much better than tasteless trash from Loboda.
Actually I really like Olexander's song-superhero.even it is pretty similar to Britney's womanizer song.But if you listen carefully you can hear that there is nothing similar except that part where he sings superhero,superhero!
Olexander would be best choice for Ukraine this year.Maybe not victory,but good place in final 100%!
If not him,than maybe Hot Chocolate-pretty good too!
Tetyana Bryantseva - Sweet and sugar baby
I like it alot, but I am afraid live version is not good enough!Check it if you want:
Thanks for the link, "every kiss" is a really good song ... I haven't heard any of the other songs in their NF but if they send that i'll be more than happy with them
GOOOO SVETLANA GOOO SVETLANA!!!
Anyone check up Svetlana live performance on youtube and you will understand why! She puts up really cool performances, she is in a class of her own.
Please not Alexander!!!
Svetlana Loboda for Ukraine!!
hmm Good Luck Ukrainee My Top 5.
2.Azerbaijan or Spain
@Juan Lugoholt, thank you! He will probably sing in two or three languages.
Best wishes to Ukraine!
Louis LaFontaine, it's better to have at least some scandals than nothing at all like in Belgium, lol.
ukrainian lover, you're an idiot... the jury allowed her to sing that song she could exchange it on another one without problems, they even agreed but ORT invited her so she chose Russia and NTU had to play this PR-circus together with Mozgovaya who gave them the opportunity to host the NF in "Ukraina" palace, btw.
This is show business. Both sides got awesome ratings.
superhero is just a cheap copy of britney spears's "womanizer" and it's performer is so bad.. i didn't like "be my valentine" like "shady lady" but it seems much better than "superhero" for sure.
I am not that fond of "Superhero". But maybe Alexandr deserves to win, since he was robbed last year in the Russian final, when he had the best song of the night. It's a shame this song is not as good as "Crescent And Cross"...
from East the only one I love the most is Lithuania's entry and I hope he is going to sing in lithuanian, it sounds great... even I wait for ukraine, russia and serbia's results
- Hot Chocolate - Kiss

Then, Anastasia decided to withdraw from the competition and join Russia's national selection.
it's lie! it's lie! it's lie! it's lie! it's lie!
she sang an old song in semi-final!!!
Let the russian choose Valeriya AND GET DISQUALIFED on home soile ......!!!
Nonononono! Ukraine, one of my favourites EVERY year... THIS is just terrible! What a disapointment...
Ukraine, Russia and Serbia are still to decide, 3 of the most successful Eurovision nations recently. It'll be interesting.
They need to save it for the East... This year (for the first time in a looong time) Western Europe has entered much better songs than the East.
bad national final.... yes!
but we hope for svitlana loboda
we haven't scandals.
ambitions of losers, nothing anymore
Good luck Ukraine
A bad national final... and besides a scandal? Shame on Ukraine this year...
BRAVO UKRAINE .I PREFER GODO OR NATALIA VOLKOVA FOR MOSCOW
Well, I love "Superhero" but I believe that "Be My Valentine" will win.
Wow, if this wins, we will have many eurotrash songs this year...
