Ukrainian singer Ruslana, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004, will join the Grand Final show of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 through a special pre-recorded performance filmed in Ukraine’s capital city Kyiv.

Ruslana, who won the Contest with the song Wild Dances, will connect Kyiv and Liverpool in a very symbolic way, and her appearance will reflect this year’s theme: United By Music.

United by Music demonstrates the unique partnership between the United Kingdom, Ukraine and host city Liverpool, to bring the 2023 Contest to audiences across the globe and showcase the incredible power of music to bring communities together.

Ruslana is the latest in a long lineup of Ukrainian artists to be revealed as taking part in the Grand Final in Liverpool.

The two other acts who have won the Eurovision Song Contest for Ukraine - Kalush Orchestra and Jamala - will also be in attendance on the night. Other fan favourites from Ukraine over the years, such as Tina Karol, Go_A and Verka Serduchka, will be taking part in the show too. 

You can listen to all 37 songs of Eurovision 2024 via your favourite streaming service or watch the music videos on our YouTube channel.

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Malmö, Sweden on Tuesday 7 May (First Semi-Final), Thursday 9 May (Second Semi-Final) and Saturday 11 May (Grand Final) 2024.
