Tvorchi are a duo consisting of producer Andrii Hutsuliak and vocalist Jimoh Augustus Kehinde. They formed back in 2017, prior to winning Vidbir they also took part in the national final in 2020 with the song “Bonfire”. They placed 4th in the Vidbir 2020 final, which was won by Go:A. They returned to Vidbir in 2022, where they were victorious. Their Eurovision 2023 song “Heart Of Steel” was composed and written by the duo themselves.
Ukraine’s Eurovision Journey
Ukraine is one of the most successful countries to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. The country has scored eight top-five placements, with an extra three top-ten finishes. Ukraine won the Contest in 2004 with Ruslana’s “Wild Dances” and again in 2016 with Jamala’s “1944”. Jamala’s win made history for Ukraine, as it became the first ex-Soviet country to win the Contest more than once.
In 2022, Kalush Orchestra represented Ukraine in the 66th edition of the Contest with their song “Stefania”. The band scored 614 points, finishing in first place, marking Ukraine’s third victory.
