While the artists have now been made public, no song titles or song previews have been made available. A draw will take place on 22 January to determine which acts will compete in each of the two semi finals to be held on 9 and 16 February. A week later the acts who performed best will do battle again in the final on 23 February. The all star judging panel consists of Eurovision 2016 winner Jamala, Verka Serduchka’s alter ego Andriy Danylko and music industry mogul Yevhen Filatov.
