MOSCOW, March 9 – RIA Novosti. Producer Iosif Prigozhin commented in an interview with REN TV on the choice of the singer Manizha to participate in the international song contest Eurovision-2021 from Russia.
Earlier on the First Channel, it was announced that the artist would perform the song Russian Woman. According to the results of the audience vote, Manizha gained 39.7%. She competed with the group Therr Maitz and duo # 2Mashi.
“I have not heard her anywhere in the charts, but I saw her performance, she was very worthy. I saw her once, she made a normal impression on me. Time will tell,” Prigozhin said.
Speaking about the performer's chances at the competition, the producer noted that the assessments are the prerogative of the jury.
“If I was evaluating, we would always come first,” he concluded.
Eurovision 2021 will be held on May 18-22 at the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam, and will be attended by performers from 41 countries. According to the organizers, the competition will be held offline, but the composition of delegations and the number of journalists will be reduced.
