"Angel" is a song by Mika Newton which represented Ukraine at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, held in Düsseldorf, Germany, which came 4th out of 25 in the final, scoring 159 points.

Eurovision 2011[edit]

The song won both the televote and jury voting in Ukraine's national final on February 26, 2011.[1] However because the voting procedure in this final was seen as inadequate a new final was scheduled to be held on March 3, 2011.[2] After Jamala and Zlata Ognevich withdrew for this new final the days before it was scheduled to be held Newton became the artist to represent Ukraine, but on March 3, 2011 it was unknown which song she would perform on Eurovision.[3][4] The next day Newton and the competitions organizer NTU declared that Angel would be send to the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 "with better arrangements".[5]

Sand animator, Kseniya Simonova accompanied Newton during the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 performance.[6]
