Among the jurors who picked up 20 best entries were Vlad Bahinskyj (a musical producer of NTU), Volodymyr Kozlov (a director of the TV channel RU Music), Victoria Romanova (international relations department) and Ivo Bobul (a singer). After the auditions, Ivo Bobul remarked that he enjoyed his role as a juror and found a lot of female voices very professional. He named his favourite contestants: Rapira and Masha Sazonova & Tyhon Levchenko.
Apart from 20 candidates from yesterday’s pre-selection, two artists got wildcards. Thus, there will be 22 contestants in the national final. One of them is a winner of the TV show Show Number One, band Nereal’nye. The name of the owner of the second wildcard is still unknown. The second wildcard will go to the singer chosen in the Internet casting on the say.tv platform. Here is the line-up of 21 candidates: 1. Shanis 2. Lena Voloshyna 3. Igor Tatarenko 4. Bondarchuk 5. Oksana Nesterenko 6. Band Treeorange 7. Marietta 8. Duet Masha Shazonova & Tyhon Levchenko 9. Vitalij Halaj 10. Olya Polyakova 11. Marta 12. Myhajlo Hrytskan 13. Renata Shtifel 14. Matias 15.
