On 23rd August 2020 we (ESC Covers, EuroVisionMusic, Eurovision Coverage and Destination Eurovision) started publishing pictures of  VICTOR BUSH modeling a Eurovision t-shirt and holding the promo material for that entry. It is to make artists aware of entering the COVER2COVER SINGING contest we were arranging. Having received just 3 entries by the end of August – one in each of the 3 categories, it was clear we cannot have a competition with just 3 local entries. We had a  rethink over the concept. The COVER2COVER concept will change but it won’t be a competition anymore with a closing date. It will be a PROMOTION PLATFORM where we will give exposure and promotion to any Eurovision related cover – an artist can send us any such song whether it is a professional video, a home video of just an audio video. There are also no limit on how many songs/videos an artist can send. We continue publishing the t-shirts at random and the 14th one is from UKRAINE 2016 – 1944 by JAMALA.  This song turned out to be the winner in 2016. In total we will publish around 30 t-shirts and after that about 10 pictures of promotional Eurovision bags for a bit of variety.



During the lock down in Europe over the Eurovision period in May, many Eurovision singers did home videos of other Eurovision artists songs. In the wake of ESC COVERS COVER2COVER singing competition, we will feature some of these so South African artists in particular can get an idea how it is done. Nor Bert of EuroVisionMusic picked the ones as he followed the whole series.

The tenth video is JAMALA from UKRAINE  (who represented her country at the 2016 Eurovision song contest with 1944 and won it, covering the Eurovision winner from the NETHERLANDS  2019 – ARCADE of DUNCAN LAURENCE.

Anna Trincher duetted with her mentor Jamala (winner of the 2016 Eurovision with 1944) in the final of Golos Krainy (The Voice of Ukraine- season 8). Together they performed Crazy In Love by Beyoncé.

Anna gave a confident and assured performance on the stage as she sang with all her heart and soul. She also performed on her own the Christina Aguilera hit Candyman.

Anna eventually finished in third place but she has come a long way since representing Ukraine at the 2015 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. I am sure she has big future ahead of her in the entertainment business where she has already released several top music videos and hits and acted in a top teen drama.

The winner of The Voice of Ukraine 2018 was Olena Lutsenko.

You can see Anna’s performances in The Voice of Ukraine final below.
