Incidents

Yuvian entrant

On the 7th of January 2018, the results of Otbor Yuvia 2 were revealed, and it was announced that Hanna had won the national final with the song "Poteryala Golovu". However, on the 15th of January 2018, Hanna fell during a promotion concert, and broke her neck. This resulted in her not being able to compete in Zendari Song Contest 2. The runner-up of Otbor Yuvia 2, Tess, was asked to take Hanna's place in the contest, but she rejected the invitation. This resulted in NAVIBAND, who managed to place in 3rd in the national final, being asked. They accepted the invitation, and managed to score Yuvia an honorable 4th place in the grand final.
