Except for U.S. singer Madonna, Verka Serduchka will perform in the final of the Eurovision-2019, which will take place on May 18. Andriy Danylko told in the interview with KP.
“This year we were asked to perform the song Toy of Netta Barzilai, and we agreed. This is a good move when the participants are singing the songs of each other. I hope that this time no advertisement will overshadow the performance, and people, who want to watch it, will be able to this,” Danylko said.
The singer also spoke about his costumes during the performance.
“We have fulfilled the request of producers to perform in our silver costumes, the one we used in Eurovision-2007. Although someone claims, “Danylko wears old costumes”. The costumes are not old, but the legendary ones. Makes difference? We were asked to wear the costumes at the press conference. It will be rather difficult, as we gave them to the ABBA museum in Switzerland. However, according to the producers, they are iconic. As they are iconic ones, so we should squeeze into them,” the singer joked.
According to Danylko, someone believes that Verka Serduchka participates in the Eurovision as the competitor, and they express their support.
It should be noted that Conchita Wurst, Eleni Foureira and Måns Zelmerlöw would perform together with Verka Serdiuchka on the stage. The producers created special cooperation between the starts of the Eurovision-2019, where the singers will sing the songs of each other. Thus, Conchita Wurst will sing the song Heroes of Måns Zelmerlöw, Måns Zelmerlöw – the song Fuego of Eleni Foureira, Eleni Foureira will sing the song Dancing Lasha Tumbai of Verka Serduchka, and Serduchka – the song Toy of Netta Barzilai.
On February 27, it was reported that Ukraine would not send its representative to Eurovision-2019. The reason was extensive politicization during the national selection. Ukrainians are not able to vote for the singers.
As we reported, singer Anna Korsun (Maruv), the winner of the national selection would not represent Ukraine at the song contest “Eurovision 2019.” Maruv said that she was forced to refuse from the participation in the contest from Ukraine due to her tour in Russia.
