Dmytro Shurov (Pianoboy), the music director of Vidbir 2024, noted that all the artists who made it to the long-list are different and original:
'I am very happy to present you the 20 artists that will compete this year for the opportunity to represent Ukraine at Eurovision 2024! All of them are different and original but they are united by a warm heart, talent and a huge thirst for victory.
I am grateful to each of them for the sincere and constructive energy they put into their songs. And I am especially grateful to everyone who did not make it to the top twenty - you made this selection possible by creating such a powerful charge. Next year will be a new story and a new chance. And today it is us.'
The long-listed participants will now go through to an audition stage, and a list of up to 10 finalists will be decided by Monday 20 November. After this, an online public vote will be held among the long-listed participants that were not been included in the list of finalists to determine one final participant.
The Vidbir 2024 final will take place in February where, as in previous years, the winner will be determined by public and jury voting. Ukrainians will choose the jury of the final by online voting - details to be announced soon.
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.
