At just 16 years old, Zena (full name Zinaida Alexandrovna Kupriyanovich) is already a veteran of the Eurovision scene — she was a finalist in the 2015 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk and came in 3rd place in 2016, before co-hosting the Juniors last year. Zena also voiced the Russian language version of Disney’s Moana back in 2016.
What will Belarus’ Eurovision 2019 song look like on stage?
Now, we’re fans of a box on wheels as much as the next person. But Zena has designed her entire performance around them. She’ll sit on them. She’ll dance around them. And, if we’re really lucky, we might even see her move one of two.
What a time to be alive.
What are the odds of Belarus winning Eurovision 2019?
Nothing’s set in stone, but it’s a catchy tune, and Zena has a pretty impressive social media following. However, most bookmakers aren’t predicting Zena will reach the grand final.
