UKRAINE – In 2016 national final of Ukraine, The Hardkiss, choice of the jury, missed representing Ukraine in Stockholm due to a jury / public tie. Jamala ultimately won but The Hardness seem not give up their dream. Group’s lead singer Yulia Sanina, said that they are already working on a song for the 2017 national selection. Their song in 2016 national final was also problematic as it was performed in a concert prior to the EBU rules, something for which EBU and NTU gave clearance as eligible. In any case if The Hardkiss enter the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest it surely will mean that Ukraine bids again for the trophy!
