Ukraine: Zlata Ognevich's 'Pray For Ukraine' would've made a perfect entry!
We're all aware of the difficulties facing Ukraine at the moment, and due to these they had to withdraw from Eurovision. I think it's a great shame we won't be seeing Ukraine in Vienna. Anyway, Zlata Ognevich's new track is entitled Pray For Ukraine and I think this would've a perfect entry for them! Why? The song is incredible, has a fantastic message and Zlata is of course simply fabulous! I really am upset that we won't be seeing Ukraine in Eurovision this year but I naturally see why they won't be there.. they can't give it their all. They have more important issues BUT I believe Zlata's new track would've rocked and brought Ukraine a more than respectable position. Plus another uptempo wouldn't have gone a miss :-P Zlata performed this song, and a few others, at a pre-Eurovision bash in Riga last night (she was a special guest). Enjoy her awesome performance below (courtesy of WiwiBloggs):

It remains to be seen if Ukraine will be back, this blogger hopes they will! It's always sad seeing countries withdraw from the contest. Please come back!!!! #PrayForUkraine.
