🇺🇦 Voting for Ukraine’s Jury for Junior Eurovision 2023 commences

On Monday (16th October) UA:PBC opened the voting in the search for the Ukrainian Jury for the 2023 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which will help decide 50% of the results of this year’s contest.

Who are you able to vote for?

For this year’s voting, the Ukrainian public will be able to vote for the adult jurors, whilst UA:PBC will put forward the two children jurors for this year’s contest. The candidates are as follows:

  • LAUD
  • Oleksiy Bondarenko 
  • Vlad Darwin
  • Tonya Matvienko
  • Myroslava Saliy
  • Yuriy Tkach 
  • Olena Topolya (Alyosha) 

Once the voting has finished, the three potential jurors would have to sign an agreement. If someone within the top five is unable to do so, the next highest-ranking potential juror would then be given the opportunity to be a part of the jury. Voting is open for Ukrainians on the Diya App and will close on the 22nd of October. The jurors will be revealed during this year’s contest on the 26th of November.

Ukraine’s Junior Eurovision Journey

In 2006, Ukraine made their debut to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, with Nazar Slyusarchuk and the song “Khlopchyk Rock ‘n’ Roll” (Хлопчик рок ‘н’ ролл), which placed 9th. Since their debut, the Eastern European nation has participated 16 times, and even won once in 2012 with Anastasiya Petryk and her song “Nebo” (Небо).

In 2022, Ukraine selected its representative through a national final, where Zlata Dziunka won the right to represent the nation with “Nezlamna”, which managed to place 9th receiving 111 points from the jury and online vote.
