She has managed to be both a shady and a shiny lady. Shady, because of the title of her Eurovision entry. Shiny, due to her long-term and successful presence in Ukraine’s music scene and beyond. We’re talking of course about the 2008 Ukrainian entrant, singer Ani Lorak.

The famous Ukrainian artist is going to start today a series of concerts around Germany, with her first station being the town of Böblingen.

Let the Karolina show begin!

Her concert tour is named Karolina, after the artist’s birth name which was rewritten to form her artistic one, Ani Lorak. This show has been already thrown in several parts of Europe and beyond, including Berlin, Tallinn, St. Petersburg and Dubai, over the last 2 years.

Obviously excited about the start of her journey around the country, she posted a picture with the full schedule of her tour:

The tour concludes after 10 days, on 13 November with a show in the German capital, Berlin.

Moreover, the Shady Lady is gearing up for her three big concerts, scheduled to be held between February and March in Belarus and Russia. Tickets can be purcahsed via her official website. Her concert programme will be as follows:

  • 16 February – Minsk Arena, Minsk
  • 25 February – Ice Palace, St. Petersburg
  • 3 March – Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Moscow

Ani Lorak at Eurovision

Three years after she finished 2nd in Ukraine’s 2005 national final, the national broadcaster NTU internally selected the artist to fly their flag in Belgrade. However, her Eurovision entry would be chosen through a national final with 5 competing songs. It was the song Shady lady that made it and would be the Ukrainian entry in the 2008 edition.

From the very start, Ani Lorak and her pop song were considered to be one of this year’s hot favourites for a high placing, even for the victory. With her impressive voice and choreography made by Fokas Evagelinos, she confirmed all previous polls and odds. The Ukrainian entrant managed to qualify with ease to the Grand Final and eventually she met the 2nd place there with 230 points.

Who would love to see her again taking the Eurovision stage?
