Tropes seen or associated to her work:

  • Flower Motifs: Roses, in the music video for "Everyway that I Can".
  • Dark Horse Victory: The early Eurovision odds placed Sertab far behind Russia's t.A.T.u., but she ended up narrowly beating Belgium's Urban Trad for the crown, while the Russians settled for third.
