Yesterday it became known that the singer Manizha will go to the Eurovision-2021 music competition from Russia. A national selection was held live on Channel One, as a result of which viewers chose the 29-year-old star by voting. Her rivals were the group Therr Maitz and the duet “2Mashi”.
I want to thank you for this trust. I will not fail, I will do it right, honestly
– promised Manizha.
At the competition, the singer will perform with the composition Russian Woman. Manizha will perform a song in Russian. The last time the representatives of Russia sang in their native language was at Eurovision 12 years ago.
Last year, the Little Big group was supposed to represent Russia at the music competition (the competition did not take place in the end due to the coronavirus), but this time the musicians refused to participate in the selection. The soloist of the group Ilya Prusikin told about the reasons for this decision.
We believe that there are a lot of talented and interesting performers in Russia, each of whom should have the opportunity to show themselves outside our country,
– he noted and wished Manizhe good luck.
Manizha was born in the city of Dushanbe (Tajikistan). In addition to music, she is actively involved in social and charitable activities. The singer is an ambassador for the Grant Life Foundation, a UN Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees and an activist in the fight against domestic violence.
The final of the Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Rotterdam (Netherlands) on May 22. The format of its holding has not yet been approved. But it is already known that the competition will be held with a number of restrictions.
