The semifinalists of national selection on Eurovision 2020
Let’s start with the fact that this time to reach the semis was possible only for those singers and musicians who have not been seen in Russia after the annexation of Crimea and the war in the Donbass. The organizers of the contest concluded after last year’s scandal with singer MARUV and made finally, in the selection rules a new paragraph.
“This year there is a very important innovation of the competition. It limits participation in the national selection of artists who have had at least one concert in Russia 2014”, – noted music producer of the National selection Ruslan Kvinta.

The Semi-Finalists Of The National Selection:
Elina Ivashchenko – the most likely finalist of the National selection, starting from the vocal. She already has a small army of fans, starting with the project “Voice. Children”, which she won in 2016. Then she again shoots another vocal show in the tenth season of “X factor,” she claimed another victory.
There is speculation that it will not only make the finals of the national selection, but to win it. However, the beautiful and strong voice is not always the decisive aspect in the selection of the viewer. Necessary show, outrageous and memorable song, which, by the way, she already has.
Elina herself wrote the song “Get up” for national selection and represented her in the final “X-factor”. The main message of the song – get up and fight.
“She’s a very strong girl who lost everything but was able to overcome all obstacles,” – explained the idea itself is Elina.

Behind the show “Chance”, “X-factor” and “Dancing with the stars.” But the most fame he received after the start of the relationship with the Alice Brain – daughter of the famous singer and composer Mykola Mozgovy. Alena and David together since 2005, but got married before the birth of his daughter Solomiya in 2015.
