Ukraine’s Got Talent
Posted September 2, 2010on:
Take the time to watch this amazing video. Her name is Kseniya Simonova from the Ukraine and she’s got talent! She actually won last year’s Ukraine’s Got Talent, and rightfully so. This will make your jaw (and Bob Ross‘ fro) drop!
I was wondering why the audience was so moved to tears by this “performance”. Then I realized her piece is about the long lasting trauma World War II continues to inflict on the people of the Ukraine. I recently learned that next to Poland, Ukraine (then a part of Russia) suffered the most number of casualties in Europe.
Do you recognize the last song? It’s Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters! I badly need a talent.
