The final (and only show) of “Vidbir 2022” will be held on Saturday the 12th of February 2022. The show will last for 2.5 hours.
Yaroslav Lodygin, one of the managers of UA:PBC, reacted:
“Because of the pandemic, the National Selection has not been held since 2020. Over this time, Ukrainian musicians have obviously accumulated energy and materials, so the number of good applications was very big! Still, there have not been many arguments among the organizing committee members up to this point, and the longlist was formed quite quickly. The fight is for the 8 positions in the final, so the hottest arguments are ahead!”
