The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 – the band TVORCHI will represent Ukraine at the contest in Liverpool
On Dec. 17, the final of the National Selection for Eurovision 2023 took place. During the live broadcast on Ukrainian national broadcaster Suspilne, Ukrainians were able to vote for their favorite candidate online, in the Diia application. This year, the audience in the app decided 50% of the result, and the jury in the hall accounted for the other 50%. According to the results of the audience voting and the selection of the jury, the band TVORCHI, which will represent Ukraine at the contest in Liverpool, became the winner. More than 166,000 votes were counted for the band.
Users of the Diia application both in Ukraine and abroad could vote for a participant in the National Selection. Based on the voting results, a rating table is formed, where each participant receives from 1 to 10 points depending on the number of votes. The results of the audience’s votes are then added to the results of the jury’s voting, which assigns points without having access to the audience’s ratings. After that, the overall result is established, based on the results of which the winner of the National Selection is determined.
