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.
