MINSK, 11 March (BelTA) – ZENA, Belarus’ representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, will try to charm the European audience with her charisma and energy.

I was nervous only before the performance. When I was on stage, I was utterly focused on the act. No one is nervous and everything is all right. I was focused on the end result and aspired to win. The most important thing is the right attitude,” the performer noted.

ZENA added that she always feels the support of her team. “My team is like a big family for me,” the singer emphasized.
