For information about Tanja to look please “Nightlight duo”, “Jz Belle” and “Sunday Mood” and for this one order in this same channel. In this page only are the videos on Tanja in solitary without her previous bands. She is my favorite artist and for this one I motivate have dedicated a blog.


Tatjana Mihhailova (nickname Tanja) was born on june 19, 1983 in Kaliningrad. Tanja was born in Russia, but of very young woman she moved with your family to Estonia. She studied dance at the College of Viljandi’s Culture and has taken part and triumphed in many contests of singing in Estonia and in other Baltic countries.

She has formed a part of four musical bands: Nightlight Duo (duo together with Ly Lumiste) Jz Belle, Sunday Mood and Swingers (actually) and in various times solo career.

Nightlight duo: It has been the best bands of music techno melodic of Estonia. The group advanced with the help of the producer Top Ten and of Sven Lõhmus, the author of almost all your songs. At the beginning of December, 2001 your first disc and cassette appeared “Jäljed liival” -Tracess of the sand-, incorporating super hits as “Veel kord” or “Miks ma ei suuda su maailma muuta” -Why I cannot change your world- in my opinion the best song of electronic music of the world (Sven Lõhmus’s masterpiece!).

Your brilliant second album “La fiesta del sol” -Party of the sun-, it appeared in May, 2002. It was incorporating super hits as “Vihmane päev” (the unique video clip of the band!) and “Another country song” nice ballad country with a nice dance.

Your more notable successes were the participation in the show “Fizz superstar 2002” and Eurolaul of 2002 with the song “Another country song” obtaining 2 place and on the following year with the hit “I can b the 1” obtaining 4 place. If they could have gone to Eurovision representing Estonia, the future might have been different. Ly remained a pregnant woman (2004) and was a motive of the dissolution of the band.

For your part, Ly also has worked in solitarily, together with appearances in “Mr. Happyman”, popular juvenile band in the one that was singing together with Sven Lohmus. From 2004 Tanja already she appeared before the public with the name of your new band “Jz Belle”.

Jz Belle: The idea of the Jz Belle’s first album consists of a new combination of the dance version of the hits more acquaintances of the music disc of the 70s and a spectacle of energetic and very glamorous dance. To the group there belong also the beautiful Viktoria and Natali, professional ballerinas and friends of Tanja of the college of dance.

Jz Belle was chosen by popular vote to take part in the musical “Fame“, who appeared in the city of Tallin in autumn of 2006. On August 6 the band had the opportunity to propaganda be done on having taken part like support band in the concert of Status Quo in Haapsalu.

In November, 2006 there went out the album of JZ’s début, “Teemant” -Diamond-, with your song of entry “Kaasa mind vii” -Take Me with you- and your song “Sõbranna” -Friend- of a certain flavor to scandal. If the first album was containing contemporary arrangements of the hits disc of the 70, in your new album there is opened Jz Belle’s much more artistic facet. In Teemant there are 12 original songs in Estonian, written specially for her. The grand concert of presentation of Jz Belle’s new album took place on November 22, 2006 in the Rock Cafe. In the presentation there was also the famous composer of music pop and winner of several Gramy, Stephen Nowles, who invited Tatjana to The United States to record. 

The best songs of the album for me are precisely the songs that at first did not have to be the singles: “Sind nii kaua pole olnud siin” -You haven’t been here for a long time- and “Sind Ikka Ootan” -I am still waiting you- romantic ballads accompanied of a powerful voice and a very good melody, where in addition violins appear.

After the ending of “Jz Belle” Tanja has taken part in numerous musicals (Fame, Pussycat dolls, Queen the doors of time…) in this period also we see that Tanja does projects in solitarily. Two singles of great interest “Sunday” and “Destination” can be bought even in itunes. The songs were very good and the very interesting marketing plan but Tanja did not continue the career in solitarily.


She has taken part as nice presenter in television (Teler tv) up to joining the Swedish band “Sunday mood” (2009) with your previous composer Jz Belle’s Timo Vendt.

An important moment for her professional career was her participation in “Laulud Tähtedega 2010” with her mate of contest  Margus Hanson. After diverse weeks where she operated and sang very different songs, Tanja stayed secondly. Her reputation, recognition for the public and the increase in her performs has increased very much from the participation in this contest. In Tanja’s blog there is a great informative development relating to this contest.

In these last two years different very important events have happened in her life. For example: award to the most sexy girl artist of the year of Estonia in 2010, forms a part of the photographic exhibition “CloseUp-MakeUp”, She has been invited to the reception annual Independence Day, 24 February, with the president, Toomas Hendrik Ilves etc.

And recently from the summer 2011 she has taken part in two show of  Estonian television (TV3) more: in ELU VEINIMÕISAS and Laulupealinn (october, november 2011).

Show Laulupealinn in Tanja Mihhailova’s blog:


Tanja competed in this final representing to the city “Kohtla-Järve” against the artist Ott Lepland and the city “Kärdla”. Although she could not win the final to Ott, her career is becoming stronger.

From November, 2011 Tanja also she has her small article in the Wikipedia. A small honoring in english for a great artist!. Now we need that small someone an article in the Wikipedia in Estonian.

Also Tanja continues with her currents shows: “Tribute to Beyoncé”, “Tribute to Madonna”, “Tribute to Queen”, “Thank you for the music” (ABBA) etc.  as well as some contribution with the jazz/swing band “Swingers”.

  1. I like very much Tanya’s songs. They are very fresh and her voice is really very good. As a matter of fact, “Kaasa mind vii” is going to participate in a festival organised by the members of the Greek Eurovision Fanclub. Could you please send me the lyrics, so that I could insert them to the official programme of the event?

    • I think the same thing that you… She would have to be more famous and better known out of Estonia… This is the task that I take doing for 2 years!
