What else to know about Zinaida Kupriyanovich aka ZENA? She is already a veteran of the Eurovision scene and the Russian language voice of Disney’s Moana.
The girl was a finalist in the 2015 Junior Eurovision in Minsk and came in 3rd place in 2016, before co-hosting the Juniors last year.
She’s also a YouTuber and social media star, with over 93,000 subscribers on Instagram and 48,000 and 15 million views on YouTube.
What is to expect today? The routine of the Belarusian teen pop diva is chockfull of crop tops, sassy dances, warbling high notes and tight latex trousers.
Unfortunately, last year Belarus failed to qualify for the Eurovision 2018 final with Alekseev’s song Forever. Fingers crossed, glamour gal of the gas pedal will change the continued tendency.
