As the host nation for Eurovision 2017, Ukraine doesn’t need to worry about participating in the semi finals.
No, they’ll be starring in Saturday night’s Grand Final, alongside the big five of Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom.
The Ukranians have done rather well in the past couple of years (apart from 2015, when they didn’t participate), but could they have what it takes to go back to back in 2017?
They’ve turned to local rock outfit O.Torvald in the hope of capturing the crown for the second successive year.
They’re a band with plenty of experience – and a back catalogue that stretches back a decade.
But we think their ‘Time’ may be up in 2017.
The track itself isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination. It’s just not that special.
And those dreams of going back to back at Eurovision 2017? They won’t be realised.
