Kyiv wins right to host Eurovision

It’s official: Kyiv will host the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

The Ukrainian Organization Committee picked Kyiv over Odesa and Dnipro (formerly Dnipropetrovsk) to host the contest.

The decision came on September 9, after a delay of more than a month. The three cities were pre-selected from a total of six Ukrainian cities that bid for hosting rights, with Lviv, Kherson and Kharkiv being eliminated in the first round of the selection process.
