History[edit | edit source]
Zendari Song Contest 3[edit | edit source]
Before being asked to debut in the contest, on the 2nd of February, it was announced that Dua Lipa would represent Shairia in Shairia's debut contest, with SBC stating that the debut would hopefully be in the third edition. On 7th of February, Shairia was asked if they would like to debut. SBC ultimately confirmed their debut, sending the song "Genesis" being performed by the artist previously confirmed, Dua Lipa. However, on 8th of February, Dua Lipa snapped her ribcage, meaning she would not be able to go to Zendari. After this announcement, it was announced that Nicky Tučková would go to Zendari, with the song "Rich Boy". Unfortunately, as expected by SBC, Tučková did not qualify. Tučková did not recieve the worst placing, as Gigabyte automatically placed last, however with 13 points she received the lowest points in the entire third edition, with the 2nd lowest points in the history of Zendari Song Contest, with Cojones receiving the least amount of points with 10.′
Zendari Song Contest 4[edit | edit source]
Alot of fans were shocked at the fact Ivi Adamou was going to Zendari Song Contest 4 over ONUKA. ONUKA, who would've performed the song "Vidlik", originally won the national final but they gave up the spot to Ivi Adamou. However, a few days after this, Ivi Adamou stated that she did not want to go to Zendari, and right after that, the host of the conference, Madara, announced that Tula would represent Shairia in Zendari Song Contest 4 with the song "River". On 26th March, the SBC received a shock as they qualified over fan favorites like Haña and Sosij. Shairia placed 21st on the night, with 76 points. They received 12 from Xobrania, 10 from Sosij, and 8 from Borschóviya and Fokland. SBC was very happy with this result, as they received many good points during the voting.
Zendari Song Contest 5[edit | edit source]
AURORA originally won Shairia's Shortlist 1, however decided to step down after a car crash involving her family. SBC then announced that King Deco would sing "Castaway" for Shairia in Zendari Song Contest 5. Then, Shairia qualified unexpectedly for the second time in a row. After their qualification, it was revealed that SBC was payed to televise Shairia's Shortlist 1, and that it was not created by SBC, therefore AURORA would not be able to participate anyway.
Zendari Song Contest 6[edit | edit source]
Straight after Shairia's confirmation for Zendari Song Contest 6, false media reports stated that Björk would represent the country. It was then denied. Then, SBC announced that Anna von Hausswolff would participate for Shairia. However, Hausswolff did not know about this and declined the offer. Then, it was announced that a singer originally from the United Kingdom, who had flew over to the planet of Zendari, would represent Shairia. Bree Runway was later confirmed as the artist with the song "What Do I Tell My Friends?". But, for the 4th time, Shairia changed their entry to Lola Tish with the song "Rozovye Volosy".
Zendari Song Contest 7[edit | edit source]
Rumours spread that a national final for Shairia would take place. Then, about 1 day after confirmations opened, BELLSAINT was announced to take part for Shairia in Zendari Song Contest 7. However, BELLSAINT denied this statement. It was later announced that Cyanese singer Eugénie would represent Shairia. Eugénie confirmed that she would represent Shairia. Then Eugénie randomly flew over to Cyan, her birth country, and dropped out of representing Shairia, so ORKID stepped in with the song "Obvious".
