Ani Lorak – Сумасшедшая
The 2008 Ukrainian Eurovision runner up is still going strong and releases her latest song ‘Сумасшедшая’ (English: ‘Crazy’). Unlike ‘Shady Lady’ her recent releases have been rather downtempo, however this is more in the uptempo style ESC fans will remember her for. Listen to ‘Сумасшедшая’ here:

Following on from his duet released last week with Sigrid Bernson, Samir Badran is back with his usual partner Viktor Frisk for the anthemic ‘Put Your Hands Up för Sverige’.
