Go_A's Song for Eurovision set to be announced - and it's one of these three
Overnight, Ukraine’s Eurovision representative 'Go_A' released the snippets of the three songs that went through Ukrainian public broadcaster UA:PBC’s internal selection process.
And as these snippets were released, it was also announced by that the chosen song would be revealed on Thursday European time, (expected to be Friday in Australia).
The internal selection process was held online through a zoom call on February 1, where an internal jury consisting of Eurovision 2016 winner Jamala, ONUKA founder Yevhen Filatov, Ruslan Kvinta, Dmytro Khorkin and Yaroslav Lodrygin decided on Go_A’s Eurovision song.
So, here are the three songs that could represent Ukraine in Rotterdam:
The first of the songs which have been released as being a part of the internal selection process is the fully released song ‘SHUM’. Despite previously stating that the song wouldn’t be for Eurovision, UA:PBC has revealed that ‘SHUM’ is one of the three entries in the running to represent Ukraine.
The dark, techno number has already managed to garner nearly half a million views on YouTube within just a week. And the song has already become a fan favourite.
The second of the songs which have been released as being a part of the internal selection process is 'Rano'. This folk-sounding rock entry which translates to ‘Early’ is the snippet most similar to their intended Eurovision 2020 entry ‘Solovey’.
And the third and final of the songs which have been released as being a part of the internal selection process is 'Tserkovka'. This experimentally sounding entry is the most spiritual entry of the three when it comes to its lyrics, with a song title that translates to ‘To Church’.
So, which song do you think will represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam? The song announcement is expected to take place overnight tonight in Australian time, and we’ll give you an update when we find out which entry is chosen.
