"Tick-Tock" is a song by Ukrainian pop-singer Mariya Yaremchuk. It was chosen to represent Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Denmark.[1] The song was firstly presented at the casting for Eurovision 2014.[1]

The director of the song performance was a British choreographer Francisco Gomez.

The song represented Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest and placed the 6th in the final out of 26 countries.


The song underwent a series of edits and changes since winning the national selection in December 2013. The original version was met with mixed to mostly negative reviews. Yaremchuk then premiered a new version of the song during the Maltese national final. The new version had a darker and more haunting tone and was met with mixed to positive reviews. Then, when the song deadline was due, the final version was unveiled by Yaremchuk. The new version was met with mostly positive reviews due to the huge lyrical and musical overhaul.

Music video[edit]

The official video was presented on YouTube at March 17, 2014.[2] It has scenes with Mariya Yaremchuk singing in a dark room with lanterns featuring her dancing shadow on the wall.

At the performance on Eurovision in addition to the singer, Igor Kuleshyn ran in a big wheel (resembling a wheel for hamsters).[3]
