Eurovision 2016 Favourites. Ukraine

Saw Jamala first on the semi-final and was shocked how it wasn’t a performance at all. I mean the woman has profound vocal abilities and the song is great. Yet it was like having a skull brought in during one of Trimalchio’s feasts. She wasn’t putting up a show – she was bringing a message, a […]
