During the Ukrainian first rehearsal, the fairytale forest with butterflies and warm sunrises is shown on the projectors. Zlata not only impressed with her strong voice but also told a fairytale that inspired her to fulfil her dreams.

In the beginning of Zlata’s performance, the giant entered the stage. He carried Zlata to the “magic circle” in the middle on the stage. The name of the giant is Igor Vovkovynski. He lives in America but originally Ukrainian. The giant is 2.42 metres tall and has size 62 shoes.

The Ukrainian singer wore a long beige dress that perfectly matched the light settings on the stage. She was accompanied by three female and one male backing vocalists dressed in black. The male vocalist, Cleveland Watkiss, has one of the best jazz voices in the world and is called a jazz legend. All four backing vocalists admire Zlata as a person and as a singer and compare her voice to voice of Celine Dion.
