The clock is ticking down to her semi-final 2 appearance on Tuesday. But over the weekend, Belarus’ Zena released the long-awaited music video for “Like It”.
Recorded in Moscow last month, the Albert Plekhov and Andrei Tsar directed clip sees Zena unleash her inner teen pop diva. In keeping with the song’s uptempo nature, the 16-year-old has lots of fun.
She sports a range of on-trend looks with some quirky animated accents. Think “Lush Life” era Zara Larsson.

This year’s youngest contestant had her second rehearsal on Thursday. Our Angus writes:
“Glamour gal of the gas pedal! At Belarus’ second rehearsal at Eurovision 2019 Zena was pretty in pink. This felt so much tighter than the first rehearsal, with better camera angles and more purposeful choreography. The pink theme has been amped up in all elements and it adds a youthful quality the production was lacking before. At times it still has urban edge, but it also has touches that make the song accessible for a younger audience. Zena is doing everything she can to get Belarus into the grand final and it shows”.
Did you know, Zena was born Zinaida Kupriyanovich. She started out performing under her birth name. However, some years ago she adopted the moniker Zena. Be careful though, it’s pronounced “Zay-na”, not “Zeeh-na”. She teaches our William the correct pronunciation in her post-rehearsal interview.
