Ukrainian Sandimation

Not fair. Britain got Susan Boyle and some jumpy dancers with a kid who looks like Sideshow Bob in a bag. The Ukraine’s Got Talent winner 2009 was 23 year-old Kseniya Simonova, who created captivating sand animations, some of them dealing with Ukrainian experiences of German invasion during WWII. I could do without the Metallica soundtrack, but it’s still a thing of beauty which proves that the show’s format might be used to uncover something novel amidst all the Bontempi crooners and dog trainers.
