The representative of the Crimean Tatars Susana Dzhamaladinova wrote the song “1944,” about the deportation of Crimean Tatars, especially for the qualifying competition for the “Eurovision-2016″ and won the right to represent Ukraine at the European competition. However, the Commission will check the lyrics, and it is likely that it is recognized too politicized.
Let’s remind, 32-year-old singer Jamal won the national final of the song contest “Eurovision-2016″ with the song “1944,” about the deportation of Crimean Tatars with Stalin.
According to the results of the national final Dzhamaladinova Susana and artist The Hardkiss with «Helpless» song scored the same number of votes of the jury, which was including Danilko, Ruslan and Konstantin Meladze. However, the results of the viewers’ vote counting 382 thousand sms put on the first line of Jamal (6 points).
Jamal was born in the family of the Crimean Tatars and Armenians. On the creation of the song “1944″ inspired by the story of her great-grandmother. With it, she performed in the qualifying round of “Eurovision».
Experts and politicians immediately spoke about the politicization of the song that does not comply with the European competition. So, Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Ruslan Balbec said that “Ukrainian authorities are trying to use Jamala song for political purposes, capitalizing on the tragedy of the entire Crimean Tatar people”. According to him, this is done in order to impose a European audience, “artificially created image of the alleged persecution of the Crimean Tatars in the Russian Crimea».
The music critic Artemy Troitsky said that the song Ukrainian singer politicized, “and the competition has always been out of politics. ” “A song can not prevent the competition organizers of” Eurovision “…” Eurovision “is not about the music, but rather about the sport, and the sport is known to be out of politics” – quoted him RIA Novosti
It should be noted that there were cases when representatives of “Eurovision” song did not miss contender, BBC writes. For example, in 1990 one of them was “wrapped” for the song of European unity. In 2005, the Ukrainians had to change most of the text “Together we are rich” songs dedicated to the events of the Orange Revolution of 2004. In 2009 (after the “08/08/08″ event) to participate did not allow Georgian team with the song, which was present in the phrase – Put In ( «invest” – Eng.), Which is consonant with the name of the then Prime Minister of Russia.
