If you have missed her, don’t be sad anymore! Ani Lorak, Ukraine’s 2008 Eurovision entrant is returning on Europe’s spotlight with the release of her brand new video clip for her latest single Sumasshedshaya (Crazy). And the result looks rather beautiful…
Journey to Greece
For the clip’s filming, the pop star was not limited within the Ukrainian borders, but travelled to Greece and specifically to one of the country’s most popular tourist attractions, the island of Crete. The music video of her new pop song features scenes from the airport of Heraklion (Crete’s capital and largest city), the coasts of Lasithi Prefecture and the luxury resort Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel.
The choice of Greece for shooting her video clip doesn’t seem random, due to the artist’s close professional and friendly relations with the Greek composer Dimitris Kontopoulos, as well as the choreographer Fokas Evagelinos, who was also responsible for her stage presence at Eurovision 2008.
Here’s Ani Lorak’s new music video. Which are your impressions?
The video has already reached 1 million views on her official YouTube channel, and therefore Ani wanted to thank all of her fans and followers for their support via the following Instagram post.
Ani Lorak at Eurovision
Turning back time, the successful singer Ani Lorak was internally selected by the Ukrainian broadcaster NTU to represent the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, which took place in Belgrade. After a national final where she performed 6 candidate entries, it was finally decided that she would fly to the Serbian capital with the pop track Shady lady, written by Karen Kavaleryan and Philip Kirkorov and produced by Dimitris Kontopoulos.
Having been one of that year’s contest hot favourites even for a potential victory, Ani Lorak finally ended up 2nd to the Russian 2008 winner Dima Bilan with a total of 230 points.
