Zlata Ognevich raised quite a few eyebrows back in 2013 when a real life giant carried her on stage. What follow was an epic performance of “Gravity”, which demonstrated vocal acrobatics and landed Ukraine in a respectable third place. At the fabulous Eurovision PreParty Riga 2015, Zlata hit the stage with Eurovision 2011 winner Eldar (Ell) Gasimov and the two performed their duet “Fire and Ice”.

wiwibloggs were on the scene and met the lovely Zlata to talk about her single “Pray for Ukraine”, which is her tribute to her country and its people. We also talked about a more joyous experience: hosting JESC in Ukraine.

Well actually, Ukraine is somewhat still in the contest thanks to Eduard Romanyuta. Would have been nicer if he sung as the entrant of Ukraine but what is done is done.

And that is the reason why Ukraine just should have participated this year. If eurovision is real happiness for them, they should have just participated in the current situation, while it could be a lightning point for them
