Electronic band Tvorchi has qualified for the Grand Final of Vidbir in Ukraine. In a rather weak second semi, Tvorchi finished on top with maximum scores from jury and televote.
Tvorchi is already quite a familiar name in the Ukranian music scene, unlike most of the other participants this year:
“Maruv-rule” excludes big names from Vidbir competition
The introduction of the controversial “Maruv-rule” excludes any singers who have ever performed in Russia or Crimea from Vidbir. This means that basically any arrived or experienced Ukranian performer cannot take part. Therefore, Vidbir has been forced to focus on young talent. The participant list includes several The Voice participants and a few unknown names.
