    ILLARIA is by far the most intriguing, unique and interesting performer. Her voice is incredible. I hope she wins.

    Natalia Valevska is another great singer.

    These 2 are the BEST!!! report to the moderator

    My choice is Victor Romanchenko and his mind-blowing song "On The Brink of The Abyss"! He is the singer who`s got enchanting voice, and his powerful energetics drives me crazy! It`s time for strong, manful and handsome man to win! report to the moderator
