The 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest might bear some signifance to a number of countries like it does for Ukraine noting that this year will mark their tenth year in contention and with a victory and also two runner-up finishes, the nation has almost always ranked high in the scoreboard with the result achieved last year also being amongst the upper echelons noting that the song 'Angel' by Mika Newton finished in a somewhat surprising fourth position. For yet another year, the broadcaster has called for a national selection and despite an internal jury choosing twenty one (21) participants, the public had the chance to choose another one through an online platform and indeed, the list has now been finalized.

There had been a public uproar about the elimation of Max Barskih initally and therefore, when the fans had the chance to get him back into the competition, they did so immediately winning the last position, the wildcard as announced by NTU, the Ukrainian broadcaster responsible for the participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. The song which he will be presenting to the public this Saturday, 18th February 2012 is entitled 'Dance' and it is a very energetic entry which will get everyone on his feet to move along to the twisty beat.
