Constant commentator and host of the Eurovision Song Contest on Public Broadcasting  Timur Miroshnychenko  will host the final of the national selection for Junior Eurovision 2022.

The final of the national selection for participation in Junior Eurovision 2022 will take place  September 18  at  18:00  in the format of a live broadcast on a TV channel Social Culture , as well as on YouTube channels of Eurovision Ukraine  and Facebook pages of Eurovision Ukraine .

“In my opinion, this is an extraordinary event. The very fact of the national selection and the country’s participation in the Junior Eurovision once again proves the strength and indomitability of our people. Because even in the darkest times, we always find the strength to think about the future, not to give up and move forward. We must take special care of the new generation! That is why the cherished “Ukraine!” will sound on the largest children’s stage in Europe, millions of people will hear the Ukrainian song again and see the eyes of our representatives filled with pain and confidence at the same time – this is already a small but extremely important victory!” says Timur.

Timur Miroshnychenko first became a commentator for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2005. In general, he has commented on the Eurovision Song Contest for 17 years in a row. In 2009 and 2013, Timur was the host of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv. And in 2017, he was the co-host of the Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Kyiv after Jamala’s victory.

During this time, Timur became for all Eurofans the “voice of Eurovision”, the “Ukrainian soul” of the contest. This year’s video of Timur’s sincere reaction to the victory of the Kalush Orchestra at Eurovision 2022 in Turin and commentary from the bomb shelter  flew around the world.

Let’s note, before the final of the national selection of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest five participants entered  from more than half a hundred volunteers who applied for participation. This year, Ukrainian children had the opportunity to apply from abroad: their country of residence  was not important for participation in the national selection. There were also innovations related to the jury. Spectators on their own jury members were chosen from among the proposed candidates.
