On Sunday she burned up the stage at Poland’s Wakacyjna Trasa Dwójki 2021, performing her new hit “La La Love” and her beloved Eurovision track “Tick-Tock.” But days later Croatian star Albina was still in Poland after testing positive for the coronavirus.
The twenty-two-year old singer revealed the news on Twitter on Sunday evening, explaining that she’s not allowed to fly home.
Dakle pozitivan test na Covid u Varšavi; ne možeš se vratit doma avionom ali možeš se snalazit po Poljskoj javnim transportom da dođeš do mjesta gdje si boravila. Makes sense

Albina, who was recently named Miss Congeniality in the annual wiwibloggs Vision Music Awards, is maintaining her positive spirit. In an Instagram post, which shows her on the Wakacyjna stage, she joked: “It was so good that I had to stay longer.”
She punctuated her comment with a green heart and a cry-laugh emoji.

Albina’s performances in Poland showcased once again why she’s one of her countries fastest-rising stars and one to watch as she moves forward with her career post-Eurovision.
Singing “La La Love” she raised the temperature on the summer as green lights created a mysterious, sensual atmosphere.
For “Tick-Tock” she stood centre stage while working a deliberately asymmetrical outfit. A white coat cut a diagonal hem across her thighs, which was offset by some unusual leg décor. Her right leg sparkled in glittering hose, while her left leg was covered by what appeared to be a thigh-high leather boot — again with asymmetrical flair.
Albina wasn’t the only Eurovision star to make an appearance. From 45:50 below, you can watch Cyprus’ ESC 2021 singer Elena Tsagrinou burning up the stage with “El Diablo.”
Poland’s Eurovision 2017 singer Kasia Mos performed a few times as well. Below you can enjoy her cover of Katy Perry’s “Hot N’ Cold”.
