"I always watched animes as a child, with my brother, and I loved manga", Jamie-Lee explains. "But then I found a K-pop song on Youtube, and I was like: oh my god - this is awesome!" This is how her fascination for Japanese and Korean music got started. Now the 18-year-old German artist will represent this very style on the stage of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. Watch our video interview with her, and learn more about her plans and favourite pastimes!

Check out our video interview below, and see Jamie-Lee's spontaneous performance of Crazy by the Korean band 4Minute!
So what are the three things Jamie-Lee likes most about Korea? "The first thing is the music. The second thing is how K-pop idols look like. And the third thing is the language. Oh - and everything I can eat there!", she quickly adds, laughing.
Her outfits are inspired by Korean and Japanese street fashion, not only on stage but also in private life, as you can see in our gallery below.

Jamie-Lee will perform Ghost in the Grand Final of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest tonight, a song written by Anna Leyne, Thomas Burchia, and Conrad Hensel. With that very song she already won The Voice of Germany in 2015.
Check out her full performance of the song in the Second Semi-Final:
