The Ukrainian entry this year is titled “Gravity” and Zlata Ognevich will proudly defend the colors of the Ukrainian flag on stage. Today she had her first rehearsal and already she’s considered the second hot favourite to win.
WHAT WE LIKED
Indeed a gigant carries out Zlata on stage. Igor Vovkovinskiy is 2,43 meters high. The vocal performance is amazing and we already knew that plus the sentiment of the Disney movies is all over the place. Ukraine is considered a favourite with this tune and maybe they make it. Fro sure they will be in the final.
WHAT WE DISLIKED
Although we are almost sure they will be in the final, the Ukrainian presentation seems quite kitch. The giant guy should have been skipped. Not to mention that after the avatar-inspired video clip what you see on stage looks so poor and makes you wanna ignore this entry at all.
