OREANDA-NEWS. Singer Manizha, representing Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest, in an interview with RIA Novosti assessed her chances of winning.

She has no doubts that she will make it to the finals. But what place will take place depends, according to the singer, solely on her own inner confidence that she is heard.

Manizha said: “If you are in a high position, but they didn’t understand you, it’s strange. It may be that everyone understood you, and you took a position lower. I probably want to be heard first of all.”

Also, the Russian participant told what she was going to do after Eurovision. After the contest, Manizha plans to release a new album this summer: "There will be a lot of videos, the album will finally be released. I think in the first months after Eurovision, maybe in July we will try to release it. This situation gives me a lot of inspiration. And I know for sure, that this inspiration will spawn many more songs. "

Manizha is a Russian singer originally from Tajikistan, who gained fame after publishing music videos on social networks. In December, she became the first UN Goodwill Ambassador for Refugees from Russia. At Eurovision 2021, the singer will perform with the song Russian Woman.
