Ukraine's got talent

I generally dislike TV talent shows. Whether it’s X-Factor, Pop Idol, The All-Ireland Talent Show or Opportunity Knocks. They tend to showcase acts that appeal to a lowest common denominator, and the occasional exceptions to this rule don’t make the rest worth watching. I don’t think this view makes me a snob, but if it does then so be it.

However, if I was living in the Ukraine and knew that this woman would be appearing on their national TV talent show, then I’d have gladly made an exception. It’s genuinely beautiful and really quite moving.

I advise watching it in fullscreen mode. Enjoy.
