It's O.Torvald for Ukraine at Eurovision 2017, but not without scandal

After six acts performed in the Ukrainian national selection for Eurovision 2017, O.Torvald was declared the winner with the song "Time."
O.Torvald will go on to represent Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
This was based on a combination of jury votes and televotes. Tayanna won the jury vote and MELOVIN clearly won the televote.
Because the jury ranked MELOVIN second to last in points, he lost, despite being the clear favorite with the majority of Ukraine. The studio audience booed when the jury gave their votes, and also chanted MELOVIN when he was robbed of the victory.
Listen to the song below.
