All 10 Vidbir songs, in the running to represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2023, are now available to listen to on the UA:PBC Eurovision YouTube channel.

Along with the presentation of the songs, the running order was decided:

1. Moisei - I'm Not Alone 
2. OY Sound System - Ой, тужу (Oy, tuzhu) 
3. DEMCHUK - Alive 
4. Jerry Heil - When God Shut The Door
5. FIINKA - Довбуш (Dovbush) 
6. KRUTЬ - Колискова (Lullaby) 
7. Tember Blanche - Я вдома (I’m Home) 
8. Angelina - Stronger 
9. 2TONE - Квітка (Flower) 
10. TVORCHI - Heart Of Steel 

Announcing the finalists, Pianoboy (Vidbir's music producer) said: 

'I am very grateful to all the musicians that managed to do an important job in really difficult circumstances, both emotionally and physically, often under sirens and shellings, in basements and with no power supply. The task was complicated as, besides writing a good song that would touch people, recording it in a studio and performing it live at auditions, the participants had to comply with all the rules of the national selection. 

As a result of great common work of the team of UA:PBC and the musicians that submitted their songs to participate in Eurovision 2023, this year we will hear a lot of interesting new Ukrainian music of very different styles, and I am confident that every listener will find their favourite there. 

There were a lot of great musicians beyond these ten finalists, and I believe that they will have their say in Ukrainian music soon. This gives me hope and confidence that the 2024 Vidbir will be no less interesting!’
