11 year old Kristall (Kristina Kochegrova) has won this years Ukrainian national final with “Evropa”. Interestingly she had been in hospital for all the build up events like last years Ukrainian participant in Minsk, Belarus. Kristall performed 5th and is from Kiev, she fought off competition from 20 other acts from across Ukraine. Here is “Evropa” which in English is “Europe”.
Kristall will be hoping to do better than last years entry from the Ukraine “Miy Litak” which came 14th (Last) with just 28 points, Ukraines worst result in the contest. Ukraine traditionally has been one of the best nations in JESC consistently coming in the top.10 since their debut in 2006 where they came 9th.
