Ukrainian broadcaster UA: PBC announced yesterday the hosts for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv. Oleksandr Skichko, Volodymyr Ostapchuk and Timur Miroshnychenko have been chosen to host the contest in Kyiv in May. It's the first time in Eurovision history that three male hosts have been chosen.
"We are thrilled at the prospect of having three hosts for this year’s contest. This will be the first time that Eurovision has had three male hosts in its sixty-two year history, and Oleksandr, Volodymyr, and Timur have a proven track record of combining humour, improvisation, and professionalism in their routines. I’m confident that they will provide much entertainment for viewers in May". said Jon Ola Sand (Executive Supervisor) to eurovision.tv 
Stuart Barlow (show producer ESC 2017) added: "We did not set out looking for three young men but after being so impressed by them in the castings, we started to develop the idea of having these amazing young guys working together. They have a great chemistry, and its great because it has not been done before at Eurovision".
