This year’s contestants, and organizing country, Ukraine, has revamped their song, “Heart of Steel”. Last year Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the contest of 2022 in Turin (Italy), but because of the ongoing war with Russia, Ukraine cannot organize the upcoming contest on home soil, so the United Kingdom stepped in to organize a Ukraine-inspired contest.
Tvorchi’s entry revamp
Tvorchi, the winner of this year’s Ukrainian national final, has revamped their entry, “Heart of Steel”. With this new version of their entry they will perform in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. Ukraine’s Tvorchi were the first contestants that were chosen in late 2022, and because of that they had a lot of time to revisit their entry. Some of the lyrics that were in English before will be in Ukrainian now, and there are also new production elements.
Tvorchi consists of two artists, Andrii Hutsuliak and Jimoh Augustus Kehinde. Andrii if from Ukraine and Jimoh if from Nigeria. The duo met each other during their studies at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Ternopil National Medical University. Tvorchi won the Ukrainian national final, “Vidbir 2023”, they were second with the professional jury, but came in first with the public.
Ukraine’s Tvorchi will perform in the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 on May 13th 2023, because Ukraine is last year’s winner, so they are immediately in the Grand Final.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will take place on May 9th, 11th, and 13th 2023 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. 37 countries will compete for the crown. This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will be a joint venture, since last year’s winner Ukraine cannot organize the contest on home soil because of the ongoing war with Russia.
