Ukraine’s last entry, Mariya Yaremchuk, finished in 6th place with ‘Tick-tock‘.

    As long as the girl gets picked, the gimmick can wait. Lol

    • Speaking of gimmicks, Mika Newton’s sand art is the greatest gimmick in ESC history. How good you ask? So great that I actually (even now) pay more attention to the art being produced on screening the back and mostly ignore the art singing on stage.

      You know that nothing distracts me when the artist is high quality, but this is one (possibly the only) exception.

      That gimmick needs to be stolen and reintroduced in the next 20 years.

  2. Give us something awesome.

  3. I should also say that I’ve changed my mind about “Tick tock”. I didn’t like it at all back in 2014 but it has grown. Nowadays, I find it quite catchy and enjoyable.
