Following this, Mélovin was asked if he is worried about their vocals on the night of the competition.
KAZKA’s last performances were incredibly cool. I know that she was perfecting her vocals, it’s cool that a person works on herself.Mélovin when asked about KAZKA’s vocals
It is very interesting what will be on the show.
Mélovin was also asked about his thoughts on MARUV replacing TAYANNA in the competition.
I do not really see MARUV on the Eurovision scene. Because there are very few vocals, this is more a project for which you want to have a good time somewhere in the club, at a party.Mélovin on MARUV’s participation at Vidbir 2019
