Ukraine: Semi-Final 3 complete, All Finalists chosen!

Over the weekend, the third and last semi-final for Ukraine’s national final took place, where the final 8 acts performed for the last two spots in the final. The same format applied to this round as the previous rounds, where the jury and televote is combined to create an overall result.

Here are the 8 acts who performed:

  • Payushchie Trusy – Singing Pants

  • O.Torvald – Time

  • Anastasia Prudius – Flow

  • Vitaly Kozlovsky – I’m Your Light

  • Kadnay – Freedom In My Mind

  • Melovin – Wonder

  • Green Grey – Future Is On

  • Vivienne Mort – Iniy

The jury and televoters were mostly in agreeance in this semi-final, although there were a few discrepancies. The two qualifiers were:

The juries voted Kadnay the highest with 8 points, and O.Torvald coming second with the jury with 7 points. The televoters however preferred Melovin, who had only scored 5 points with the jury. Coming second with the Ukrainian public was O.Torvald. As a result, O.Torvald topped the semi-final, however Melovin and Kadnay were tied on 13 points. As Melovin got the higher votes from the public, Melovin will be going to the final.

Here is the final line-up:

  1. Salto Nazad – O Mamo

  2. Melovin – Wonder

  3. Torvald – Time

  4. Iliaria – Thank You For My Way

  5. Tayanna – I Love You
