The bass baritone singer, Vasyl Lazarovych, started tonight's show with his first entry Adrenalin. The song was performed in Russian. The Ukrainian representative was very confident on stage and made the public feel the power of his deep voice. During the first entry the singer wore a very elegant black costume. He sat on a big black chair, which started moving in the middle of the song and six dancers appeared from a black overhang.
The second entry was Shine Of Your Star. The singer appeared on stage in a grey costume, accompanied by six dancers in black monk-like clothes.
The third song I Know was performed in front of blue LEDs that made this ballad sound more romantic. Four violin players, one saxophonist and one cello player were supporting Vasyl on stage.
During the fourth song Don't Wanna Lose You the rock atmosphere hang over the studio. And the last one I Love You was sung half in English, half in Ukrainian. The singer wore a very elegant white jacket that reminded of the world famous movie star John Travolta; this "Saturday Night Fever" atmosphere set a great excitement in the studio of NTU.
