◄2018 2019

Ukraine will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The Ukrainian entry for the 2019 contest will be selected through a national final, which UA:PBC will organise in collaboration with the commercial broadcaster STB.


Prior to the 2019 Contest, Ukraine had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest fifteen times since its first entry in 2003.[1] The nation had won the contest on two occasions: in 2004 with the song "Wild Dances" performed by Ruslana and in 2016 with the song "1944" performed by Jamala. Following the introduction of semi-finals for the 2004, Ukraine had managed to qualify to the final in every contest they participated in thus far. Ukraine had been the runner-up in the contest on two occasions: in 2007 with the song "Dancing Lasha Tumbai" performed by Verka Serduchka and in 2008 with the song "Shady Lady" performed by Ani Lorak. Ukraine's least successful result had been 24th place, which they achieved during the 2017 with the song "Time" performed by O.Torvald.

In 2018, Ukraine was represented by Mélovin and the song "Under the Ladder", the country ended in 17th place in the grand final with 130 points.

The Ukrainian national broadcaster, National Television Company of Ukraine (UA:PBC), broadcasts the event within Ukraine and organises the selection process for the nation's entry. In the past, UA:PBC had alternated between both internal selections and national finals in order to select the Ukrainian entry. Between 2011 and 2014, UA:PBC had set up national finals with several artists to choose both the song and performer to compete at Eurovision for Ukraine, with both the public and a panel of jury members involved in the selection. NTU withdrew from the contest for one year in 2015 due to the unstable financial and political situation caused by the conflict in east Ukraine.[2][3] In 2016, NTU collaborated with the commercial broadcaster STB in order to organise a national final to select Ukraine's entry, resulting in the selection of an entry that went on to win the Eurovision Song Contest. UA:PBC's collaboration with STB continued in 2019 and planning until 2020 and 2021.[4]
