The German representative in Eurovision 2017, Levina is in
Read the details in our interview with the singer.
-Levina, nice to see you here in
-(Smiling) First of all I want to say, that I’m really happy to be here. I loved the people and the country. As for the song, it was really a very challenging experience, the language was very different and the melody had a typical national sound, which is not common for German or English pop music. That was challenging, but also very fun and I enjoyed it.
-Why did you decided to choose particularly that song?
-Actually, I think Artsvik suggested these few songs because obviously now I know that Komitas is a very famous musician, composer in
-A few weeks ago I was in
-It’s the first day you’re exploring
-I really love it. Now I’m in Cascade. It’s a beautiful building. To be honest I didn’t know what to expect, but it’s very interesting, it’s quite European. When I saw it yesterday at night it reminded me of
-Have you already met Armenian representative Artvik?
-Not here. I’ve met her in Tel Aviv and in
-Do you like our song «Fly with me»?
-I like it. I think it’s a very powerful song and she has a very powerful voice. And I like the music video as well. It’s really very creative and cool.
-Ok, let’s speak about your song, «Perfect Life». What is according to you a perfect life?
-Well, of course that’s a difficult question, but I think the most important message of my song and for the perfect life as well not to have negative situations and to make positive out of everything. All the bad things happened with you will lead you to a perfect life, because in the end they will make you who you are.
-Do you have favorites among the participants? Do you already see the winner of the contest?
- I’m not sure, because I think there are lots of good contestants, we have some really good mood songs, other songs are more ballads, others more emotional. There is a big variety. I exactly don’t know who will be on the top in the end. But of course I wish I could be on top 10.
-What expectations do you have from Eurovision?
-I just want to take this experience from this event. I want to enjoy the time, to get to know different cultures, because everyone is celebrating the music together. For example, now I’m in
