Executive Producer Pavlo Hrytsak was asked about ticket sales for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

Ireland has triumphed seven times, while Sweden is a close second with six wins.

"Now I fully understand the honor and responsibility of representing an entire Fatherland, and most importantly, today I know that one doesn't need wings for a real flight", Artsvik said. Of the 18 contestants, only 10 performers from Bulgaria, Belarus, Croatia, Hungary, Denmark, Israel, Romania, Norway, the Netherlands and Austria received a place in the final, which will be held on May 13.

She told the Press Association: "There is this political vote every year that people talk about and, yes, this year is slightly different with the sort of political climate going on, but it is something that I am not concentrating on".

And although she still faces quite the battle for victory - the United Kingdom last won 20 years ago now - Lucie is confident it's possible. I'll hopefully sing Never Give Up On You as well as I can. Do we take it as seriously as other countries?

Polish singer Kasia Moś advanced to the finals of the Eurovision song contest during the semifinals in Kiev on Tuesday.

And after Eurovision she has another big event this year - her wedding to fiancé and fellow X Factor singer Ethan Boroian in August.

"It's only fair that each song in the Eurovision Song Contest is judged on its individual merits on the night". He's been the country's commentator for the Song Contest, hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest twice, and also hosted the country's national selection.

Ukraine won the right to host the Eurovision contest and automatically qualify for the final by winning previous year.
