Jamala considers Eurovision 2017 should be hosted by Odesa.
"It's a green city, hospitable, beautiful, with great cuisine. Every restaurant serves tasty food, people are smiling, sea air. It's only fitting to arrange fests and cinema festivals here. I think it’s just perfect for cinema and music festivals, for large scale events presenting our country. The other side is that I am not sure the infrastructure can outride Eurovision,” – Jamala says.
Jamala won Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm with her song 1944, dedicated to the deportation of the Crimean-Tatar people from the Crimea in 1944. Thus due to the rules of the contest, the winning country holds the next year contest, which in this case is Ukraine. A number of cities are now competing for the right to host.
