Exactly 12 years after Ruslana’s spectacular victory at the Eurovision Song Contest she presented her Wild Dances at the popular German TV Show Fernsehgarten (Television Garden) on the second national television channel ZDF. Her energetic performance thrilled the 5,000 spectators of the live show.
Not only her own anniversary but also Jamala’s victory on the night before at the Grand Final in Stockholm made this performance so special.
Ruslana: I’m extremely grateful to Germany and the national channel ZDF for the invitation to perform Wild Dances on this particular day. The main message of the song "Freedom above" is a style of "I'm wild", which means "I'm real.I can honestly say that the Germans love Ukraine.
We became even closer!”
