Jamala (Ukraine) chooses between two things

Posted 12 May, 2016, 15:00

Jamala will represent Ukraine at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm with the song 1944. To learn her funny side, we played a game and made the singer choose between two options: black or white, high heels or sneakers, Verka Serduchka or Ruslana? Jamala performs music that includes elements of such styles as soul, jazz, funk, folk and electronic. The singer became popular after her participation at The New Wave in 2009. In 2011, she performed her cheerful song Smile in the Ukrainian selection but didn’t win the final. In this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Jamala will perform her own composition, 1944.
