Valentina Hasan was once a joke but now she’s famous for the wrong reasons. She went on the Bulgarian version of American Idol and sang the Mariah Carey song “Without You”. But instead of the proper words, she sang her own version, thinking that her English was perfect when in actual fact it was mostly gibberish. The judges were in total hysterics (as was I) and Hasan became famous on YouTube instead of the international music charts. To this day she still believes she is singing the real lyrics.
Ironically, she is now famous in her Bulgarian homeland as the “Ken Lee” woman and she is now being asked to come back by shows and repeat her crowd pleasing performance. Why? Watch the YouTube video and find out. I guarantee you won’t get “Ken Lee” out of your head for the rest of the day.
