Eurovision 2016

UKRAINE : Jamala gets emotional when talking of her song to Eurovision Ireland

Interview with Jamala

Last night Jamala took victory in the Ukrainian National Final for Eurovision 2016.

In the press conference after the show we asked Jamala what was the message that she would like Europe to take from her song and performance.

You can tell that this is an emotive issue that is personal to Jamala. Listen to what she had to say.

Jamala will now take her song 1944 to Eurovision.

Can she win?

Thanks to our correspondents in Ukraine Maria Kotsur Ida Ballor and Darren Bradley.

Let us know what you think!

  1. It’s a such a shame the sound in your Ukraine-interviews is so bad !! You can hear people talking from a great distance but you can’t hear a word they are saying…

    • Sorry Edith – We were 1 of 2 international sites present so we had to sit in with the national press. We were just happy to have been granted press accreditations. If you cannot hear then maybe we will put up subtitles or a transcript as Jamala was very sincere in what she said
