This year Belarus choose Zena as its representative for Eurovision. Zena was born on 17th of September 2002 in Minsk, Belarus. Her birth name is Zinaida Alexandrovna Kupriyanovich.

Zena has accomplished a lot for the young of her age. Her first steps in the music industry were in 2013 when she took part in the New Wave Junior. In 2015, she tried to represent her country in the Junior edition of the contest but she finished 4th. In 2016, she tried once again but she came 2nd. Her first performance in JESC stage was last year when she co-hosted the show in Minsk along with Evgeny Perlin and Helena Meraai.

Apart from being a singer, Zena is an actress too. In 2016 she gave her voice in the Russian dub of the Disney movie Moana. She dubbed Moana the main character in the movie, something that she repeated in 2018 Disney movie Ralph Breaks The Internet.

Zena has promoted her talent beyond her country. In 2017 she participated in the Russian version of Operación Triunfo, where she ended up in the third place.

Her entry “Like It” is composed by Yulia Kireeva, Viktor Drobysh, Zinaida Kupriyanovich. It is noteworthy that Viktor Drobysh has also co-composed the 2012 Russia entry which came 2nd in the grand final.
