Helena Meraai has been quite busy lately! After being named as one of the Junior Eurovision 2018 hosts, the singer auditioned for Ukraine’s The X Factor and managed to leave quite the impression on the judges!
Helena Meraai is killing us softly!
Recently, Helena Meraai appeared on the auditions of the show’s 9th season. During the audition, the Belarusian singer performed ‘Killing Me Softly With His Song’ by The Fugees. She managed to get yes from all the judging panel, which includes Andriy Danylko, the person behind the Verka Seduchka drag persona. Therefore, this means this isn’t the last of Helena in the competition and we’ll get to see her show off her talent in further rounds of the competition.
Green room host for JESC
Helena Meraai represented Belarus in the Junior Eurovision last year in Tbilisi. Now that her country is hosting this year’s contest, BTRC selected her for a different role! As previously announced, the singer has been selected as the host for the upcoming Junior Eurovision in Minsk. Specifically, the singer was given the role of the green room host.
However, this won’t be the first time she takes on this position; recently, she served as the green room host for this year’s Belarusian national selection for the contest, alongside Ruslan Aslanov. Besides that, she has experienced the anxiety of the green room herself during last year’s Junior Eurovision, making her perfect for the position!
What do you think of Helena’s audition in The X Factor? Do you think she can make it far in the competition? Or are you looking forward to seeing her hosting the Junior Eurovision?
