Vidbir jury: Tara Topolya, Jamala & Julia Sanina

UA:PBC has completed their search for the Vidbir national final jury. This year, they decided to let the public vote on who should sit on the professional jury to select Ukraine’s Eurovision entry.

The broadcaster received over half a million votes, and so the top 3, as chosen by the public, are: Tara Topolya (lead vocals in the band Antytila), Jamala (Eurovision 2016 champion), and Julia Sanina (lead vocals in the band The HARDKISS). They'll now help to decide who will represent Ukraine in Liverpool next year.

The grand final of Vidbir will broadcast live on Saturday 17 December with 36 artists still in the running.
