jamala eurovision 2017 concert kyiv palace of sport

She’s the reigning queen of Eurovision who has dazzled Europe with a series of live performances since her win back in Stockholm.

And today Ukraine’s Jamala announced that she’s taking things to another level with a live concert on May 12 that will “be of the highest scale ever and the most spectacular of all her shows so far.”

The spectacle will unfold inside the Kyiv Palace of Sports — host venue of Eurovision 2005 and Junior Eurovision 2009 — at 1, Sportyvna pl.

Tickets cost between 250 and 1250 UAH (that’s 8.50 to 42 euros) and are available on concert.ua — a site many of you Eurovision fans will already be familiar with.

The programme will be built around Jamala’s international album “1944”, released by Universal Music Group, and also some of her best records over the years.

Those of you who only know her from the other-worldly stylings of “1944” are in a for a real treat, as Jamala is a versatile artist who can throw down funky and fresh as well as she does mystical and magical.

We speak from experience, having watched Jamala absolutely own the stage during her concert at London’s G-A-Y last July.

From disco beats to covers of Whitney Houston, she proved that she’s a musical chameleon who can slay every style.

The 33-year-old stunner reminded the audience that her song “1944” carries an important message.

“You know, this song, actually it’s about us. It’s about us who face oppression and tonight I want to dedicate this song to people who died in [the mass shooting at a gay club in] Orlando.”

Shining bright like a diamond, she wore a skin-tight pantsuit embellished with rhinestones that showed off each of her enviable curves.

In addition to singing “1944”, she absolutely slayed covers of Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and Shirley Bassey’s “History Repeating”, and her own track “It’s Me, Jamala.”

”salo is low-meat high-fat bacon with different flavors”
”I doubt Jamala needs any changes to her diet. BTW if someone is visiting Ukraine for the first time you should learn how to eat salo properly so it won’t lay on your belly we know that secret”

Why don’t you share that secret with us?

The hate towards Jamala and her song is simply ridiculous and disgusting.

Grow up people! This hate will lead you nowhere!

salo is low-meat high-fat bacon with different flavors. of kinds like you we have chocolate coated salo.

oh I forgot to mention whos the receiver of this message. that clown who thinks that Jamala need any help to fill the concert hall 🙂 last time her tickets went on sale in Kyiv there was no available tickets in hours and she even had to arrange additional concert to satisfy all requests. if any gringos don’t want do buy tickets it’s a joy for Ukrainians who won’t mind to entertain themselves.

Dear European People who will attend ESC this year!
Please come to the concert and support Jamala. She does not dare to sing at corporate events in Russia any more but she needs at least some money. She will do her best at the concert and tickets cost is like for local Ukrainians with much lower income.
You are welcome to the concert of 2016 winner! Only once! Only for You!!!

Come on, a performance from a piano bar singer. I can not believe that she has won last year. This is why Eurovision it is considered a stupid circus in Italy

Ando, Ukainian girls possess nature gift of being slim and fit even if they eat cakes, pork and salo. I doubt Jamala needs any changes to her diet. BTW if someone is visiting Ukraine for the first time you should learn how to eat salo properly so it won’t lay on your belly 🙂 we know that secret Jamala always gives her best at concerts. If you’ll experience it once you’ll never forget it. I’m sure she gives this particular concert to entertain ESC audience so she’s preparing something really great. And looks like she’s not greedy, tickets cost is… Read more »

After May 13 Jamala will eat carbs again.
I’m using Mans joke.
I eat carbs all the time and I’m thin, I don’t eat meat.

It’s between semi final 2 and the grand final, perhaps that’s why she isn’t presenting this year? Good for fans on the ground, but she’s funny and has a good grasp of English, and it’s always nice to have previous competitors host.

Hope she’ll still feature prominently within ESC itself.
