Singer Manizha, who represents Russia at the international Eurovision Song Contest, has made it to the final.
The first semi-final of the competition took place on Tuesday. Performers from 16 countries competed for a ticket to the final stage.
Russia performed under the third number.
This year Eurovision takes place from May 18 to 22 at Ahoy arena in Rotterdam. Last year the contest was cancelled due to the pandemic.
As the performer herself said after her performance, she "has only one plan". "In music, in Eurovision, anywhere to be myself. And today I was me," she said, adding that she feels joyful to have performed on this stage.
"So yeah, I'll be a little bit crazier in the finals than I am now, but I'll be me. That's what makes you successful. It doesn't matter what place you get. Just be yourself," the artist concluded.
