Pre-Contest Vote 2014: Ukraine

Welcome along to the latest summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto the next country?

Ukraine is country number 9 in our voting.
Ukraine is country number 9 in our voting.

This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:

  • We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
  • We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
  • We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
  • Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!

Got it? 🙂

Back on the launch page, you can find links to the eight countries we’ve done so far, but right now, it’s time to head to Ukraine! Their song was the first to be selected for this year’s competition, with their national final being held all the way back in DECEMBER! Beating out competition from a twenty-strong field, Mariya Yaremchuk’s traditional pop number “Tick Tock” was eventually revamped multiple times, and now they’ve got rid of that dubious “sister to a brother” line, it’s sounding like this:

Our opinions:

Rory – I actually have liked Tick-Tock all the way through the NF season even though it was the first song that was picked..I still like it regardless of how many times it was redone, but that video though…is she trying to be the Ukrainian female Michael Jackson? Score: 8 points out of 12.

James – I adored it when it was first selected, but since then it’s slipped down my rankings purely owing to the amount of better entries picked by other countries. The revamped version works for me, but it’s still not quite as good as I first thought. Score: 6 points out of 12.

So now that you know what we think of the Ukrainian song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!


Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate Ukraine’s song! In the meantime, though, stay tuned to ESC Views, as later on today, we’ll have the post for Belgium online and ready to go!

If you’d like to share your opinions on Ukraine’s song, please feel free to comment below or vote in the poll!
