Ukraine 2018 🇺🇦 Verka Serduchka confirmed as jury member
UKRAINE – After Jamala, who’s returning to the national selection jury, another one from last year is on board.
Verka Serduchka (Andrey Mikhaylovich Danilko) is not confirmed to be the next jury member for third consecutive year. He was the man who ranked Jamala as second giving his vote to The Hardkiss.
For the third consecutive year UA:PBC and STB will collaborate for the production of the national selection.
Ruslan Kvinta (compose of the 2011 Eurovision entry, Angel) is taking over the position of Konstantin Meladze who arranged everything for the national selection but he will not be member of the jury!
Now it remains to see if Konstantin Shotayevich Meladze or Ruslana will be also in the jury or maybe a new face!
There will be two semi finals and a final set for February 10th, 17th and 24th respectively. Submissions due on January 15.
A preliminary jury will decide which 14 to 30 entries will participate in the semi finals and the announcement will take place the latest by January 20th.
From each semi final 2-4 acts will proceed to the final by jury and public voting. In the final there will be 6 to 9 acts.
