After that she was invited back to sing it again, where she seems to have gotten a better understanding of the lyrics, but still sings “Ken Lee” at the critical moment… and a few other fun moments:

Valentina Hasan, the singer above, came from the second season, but just because it is cool, here is the winner of the first season, Nevena, singing a traditional Bulgarian folk song, Izlel e delio haidutin:
