Since her victory at Eurovision 2016, Jamala has enjoyed musical success with follow up hits ‘I Believe in U’ and ‘Wings’.
She also got married to long term partner Bekir Suleimanov, gave birth to their son Emir. During her time as panelist on Ukrainian Eurovision selection show Vidbir she has become a widely shared gif and caused international controversy. In 2019 she posed a very ‘uncomfortable question’ to eventual winner of the show Maruv, who subsequently withdrew as a result and this led to Ukraine pulling out of the 2019 Contest.
Here’s ten new tracks from your Eurovision faves to get your ears around! Back with new tracks this month are: Zoe (Austria, 2016), Mandinga (Romania, 2012), Frans (Sweden, 2016), Francesco Gabbani (Italy, 2017), Eric Saade (Sweden (2011), Jamala (Ukraine/Winner, 2016) as well as some of our faves from selection shows Samir och Viktor (Melfest) and Margaret (Krajowe Eliminacje 2016).
Over the past three weeks Ukraine have whittled their Eurovision 2017 contenders down to just six. These acts will compete in tonight’s final in the hopes of following in the footsteps of Jamala. Before the show kicks off, we reveal the results of our poll.
The Ukrainian Delegation in charge of organising the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev is in disarray following a number of high profile resignations.
Belarus chose Navi Band to represent them at Eurovision 2017. Since their selection in early January, the band have been doing the rounds on other countries’ national selection shows. Last week, they appeared on one of the Ukrainian heats and after a chat with Jamala, they revealed that they had prepared their own version of the reigning Eurovision champion’s winning song ‘1944’.
As we enter 2017, Eurovision national finals are in full flow. To keep you up to date with all the Eurovision happenings, we have brought back our feature; ’15 Things We Learned This Week’ which we will continue to post every Sunday evening to recap the Eurovision news for the past week! So without further ado, here is the 15 things we learned this week…
2016 has been a big year for Ukrainian singer Jamala. Not content with winning the Eurovision Song Contest earlier this year with her song about the historic deportation of Crimean Tatars from the region in 1944, earlier this week she also got engaged to her partner Bekir Suleimanov.
Three months on from her Eurovision win and Jamala has finally released a music video to accompany her song ‘1944’.
