FANvision 2024 - OGAE Ukraine


Meet the representative of OGAE Ukraine:


Vankhud was selected internally by OGAE Ukraine, and he chose his song together with the club.

Ukrainian singer Maria Sur took part in the Swedish preselection with her song „When I’m gone“, which is personal to her, and that's a feeling that Vankhud can connect to and wants to share with our audience.

Бажаємо Ванхуду та Владиславу, а також OGAE Ukraine успіху з чудовою піснею.

(We wish Vankhud and Vladyslav as well as OGAE Ukraine good luck with the great song.)

Why did you choose this song, what does it mean to you?

I chose the song "When I'm Gone" because it holds a special meaning for me on multiple levels. Firstly, the song's poignant lyrics and emotive melody resonate deeply with me. The themes of longing, farewell, and the passage of time evoke a sense of nostalgia and introspection. On a personal level, "When I'm Gone" reminds me of cherished moments and relationships that have shaped my life. It speaks to the universal experience of leaving behind a part of ourselves as we move through life's journey. The song captures the bittersweet essence of temporary goodbyes and the hope that our legacies endure even after we're no longer present. In essence, "When I'm Gone" is more than just a song to me; it's a profound expression of the human experience and a reminder to cherish the moments we have with loved ones. It encapsulates both the melancholy of parting and the enduring spirit of those who leave a lasting imprint on our hearts.


What did you feel when you were nominated by your fan club to represent the club at FANvision?

Overall, the nomination filled me with a sense of honour and pride. It was a reminder of the amazing community we have built around our shared interests, and I was eager to embrace this opportunity to connect with others who share our love for what we stand for.


Are you excited about coming to Hamburg? 

Yes, absolutely! I'm incredibly excited about visiting Hamburg. It's such a vibrant and culturally rich city, and I can't wait to explore all that it has to offer.


What are your personal interests?

I am passionate about traveling and learning about different cultures. Experiencing new places and meeting people from diverse backgrounds enriches my perspective and fuels my sense of curiosity. In addition, my personal interests reflect my love for creativity, exploration, and self-improvement. Each pursuit brings its own unique joy and contributes to a fulfilling life journey.


What’s your connection to the Eurovision Song Contest? Maybe you want to share your first Eurovision memory with us?

I have been following the competition for more than 10 years, and therefore, of course, in addition to stable viewing of selections, semi-finals and grand finals of the competition, I have an unbearable thirst for music and writing my own songs. For the past two years, I have been working on my own material and improving my skills to one day perform on the cherished stage of Europe. This spark in me was lit by the representative of Croatia 2017 Jacques Houdek. In addition, together with other members of the club, we review Eurovision songs, so I think it is worth saying here about blogging activities as well.


Is FANvision the biggest stage/ audience so far for you, what are your musical experiences, and what are your plans for the future?

I already had to perform at various events in the school period and go to vocal competitions. Although I do not have much experience of the scene, but I feel that I have that crazy power in me, which, combined with the dramatic performance that I do on stage, makes people applaud standing. I always like to enjoy the stage, making people happy. The FANvision scene is no exception!


What do you do in your life apart from being a Eurovision fan?

In everyday life I am a student, now I am studying as a Logistics Manager.


What’s your favorite Eurovision song of all time?

That’s easy to say, it’s a song by the Ukrainian electro-folk band Go_A "Shum"!


Meet the Ukrainian
Head of Delegation:


Meet Vlad, who brings back OGAE Ukraine to the FANvision contest with his club, and they choose their entry wisely.

Vlad is the president of the Ukrainian club since 2020 and most important to him is creating a spirit of community. He and his team organise meetings and events all around the country, so that every member – especially in difficult times – feels involved, appreciated and has the possibility to join the club activities. He creates an atmosphere among the members, that mirrors the ideal of Eurovision: United by Music.

How did your club find your representative?

In fact it was Hlib, who approached us with the idea of taking part in FANvision this year and when OGAE Ukraine considered his suggestion of a participation, we immediately choose him as our representative, and the fan club then chose the song, that he will sing, in an internal selection.


Does your club bring a lot of supporters for your act?

Yes, our club attracts a dedicated and enthusiastic group of supporters for our events. We've cultivated a strong community around our activities, and our supporters regularly turn out in significant numbers to show their enthusiasm and passion. Their support not only enhances the experience for everyone involved, but also fuels our motivation to continue delivering engaging and memorable acts. We greatly value our supporters and their contributions to making our club a vibrant and exciting place to be.


What do you wish for your contestant?

I wish the very best for Hlib in the FANvision song contest! May he shines brightly on stage, captivating the audience with their talent and charisma. I hope he delivers a mesmerizing performance that leaves a lasting impression and resonates with everyone watching. May Hlib's hard work and dedication pay off, leading his to success in this exciting competition. Wishing his confidence, joy, and a fantastic experience throughout the contest. Go Hlib!

What's your favorite Eurovision song of all time?

That's a tough question, but if I had to pick one, I'd go with "Euphoria" by Loreen. It's such an iconic Eurovision song—upbeat, powerful, and memorable. The performance was captivating, and the song itself has a timeless quality. It's one of those tracks that really captured the essence of Eurovision for me.

What do you appreciate in particular in a performance in FANvision? What would you want to see on stage, and what might convince you to give a high vote?

When I think about what makes a performance stand out in FANvision, a few key elements come to mind. First and foremost, I appreciate originality and creativity. I want to see something unique and fresh whether it's an innovative use of technology, a novel approach to storytelling, or a completely unexpected twist in the performance. Secondly, a strong emotional connection is crucial for me. A performance that evokes genuine emotions it joy, sadness, excitement, or introspection resonates deeply. This could come from powerful acting, compelling music, or a compelling narrative that draws me in and makes me feel invested. So if a performance can surprise, move, and impress me simultaneously, it's likely to receive my enthusiastic support and a high vote.
