"Time" is a song performed by Ukrainian band O.Torvald. The song was released as a digital download on 17 February 2017 through Best Music. It represented Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.[1]

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

O.Torvald were confirmed to be taking part in Ukraine's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 on 17 January 2017.[2] They competed in the third semi-final on 18 February 2017, and placed second with both the jury and televoters, effectively winning the semi-final and advancing to the final.[3] In the final, held on 25 February, they came second with the jury and televoting again, and were awarded enough points to win after a tiebreak with Tayanna.[1]

As Ukraine hosted the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev, O.Torvald did not have to compete in the semi-finals and automatically qualified for the final.[4][5] The song placed 24th with 36 points, Ukraine's lowest result in the competition to date.
