"Heart of Steel," a song about Ukrainians' hearts, whose resilience has amazed the whole world for over nine months, sung by the band Tvorchi, has been chosen to represent Ukraine on stage in Liverpool in the UK at next year’s Eurovision.

The winning act was announced on Dec. 17 at the national selection competition.

The national selection was held at the Maidan Nezalezhnosti metro station in Kyiv, which was transformed into a TV studio. Tvorchi's entry won the contest with ten points from the audience and nine points from the jury.

"We wrote this song in spring. It was inspired by the events at Azovstal (a famous steel plant in the surrounded Ukrainian city of Mariupol at the Sea of Azov),” Tvorchi said, commenting on their win.

Video of day

“We were constantly watching news at the beginning of the invasion and stumbled across a video of the Azovstal's defenders. Looking into their eyes, I saw fire, strength and invincibility. I couldn't imagine how hard it was for them. Things I saw in their eyes gave me goosebumps. And we transferred these emotions into the 'Heart of Steel' song."

Here are the lyrics of the Tvorchi song that will be Ukraine’s entry at the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest in Liverpool in 2023.

Heart of Steel Lyrics

Intro

Sometimes gotta let it go
Sometimes gotta look away
Sometimes you just gotta know
When to stick your middle finger up in the air
I cannot explain
Tell you how i feel
Life is just a game
And i’m playing for the win

Pre-chorus

Don’t be scared to say just what you think
Cause' no matter how bad, someone’s listening

Chorus

Don’t care what you say
Don’t care how you feel
Get out of my way
Cos i got a heart of steel
Don’t care what you say...
Or how you feel...
Oh I got a heart of steel
Oooh

Verse

You just like to act a fool
Trynna get in my head like
When I turn on my headlights
I can see right through you
Trynna get a reaction
I just hit the action move
You know I can never lose
You like the attention too
This has never been about you

Pre-chorus

Don’t be scared to say just what you think
Cause' no matter how bad, someone’s listening

Chorus

Don’t care what you say
Don’t care how you feel
Get out of my way
Cos i got a heart of steel
Don’t care what you say...
Or how you feel...
Oh I got a heart of steel
Oooh
Don’t care what you say...
Or how you feel...
Oh I got a heart of steel
Oooh
