On the Ukraine version of the show an unusually dressed young lady was set to perform her version of the “Queen” song The Show Must Go On. As she stepped on stage you could see the judges and audience alike trying to figure out what they were in for. Julia was dressed in an all-white leather suit, with red high heels and red vest. To top it all off she also had bright red flaming hair. Her eye make-up was thick and she looked like she meant business.
The judges were immediately skeptical, and you could see that their reaction was not looking to be favorable. Even some audience members were in silent conversations with each other as Julia prepared for her chance to shine. The music started, the judges held their collective breath and the audience stared in wonderment. Then it happened, she started to sing and had the crowd in the palm of her hands straight away.
From the first verse it was obvious to all in the theatre that they were looking at a superstar in the making. You could see the blood rushing to the heads of both the judges and the audience as they were stunned into submission by the ultra-powerful-performer. Her use of the stage was so professional that you know she has definitely done this before. The power in her voice sent shivers down the backs of all of those witnessing this sensational performance and had the crowd on their feet before the chorus even started.

It was if somehow she had channeled a little of Cher, a lot of Alannah Miles and a hint of Christine Aguilera, a combination that it turns out to be a winning one. You can’t take anything away from Julia, she is definitely a talent to be on the look-out for in the near future.
