MOSCOW, RUSSIA – Last Monday the King of Russian Pop Phillip Kirkorov presented his new video clip with an impressive reception at the ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel in Moscow.
Almost all Russian mega stars attended the event, while the famous singer made a special announcement introducing to the crowd the Greek composer and producer Dimitris Kontopoulos.
At that point Kirkorov said: “I am very happy that tonight my friend and colleague Dimitris Kontopoulos is with us. Dimitris is a great composer and musician that had many successful entries at the Eurovision Song Contest among them “Shady Lady” and “Work you magic”. And having said that I will reveal a small secret : The Russian participant at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 is here with us tonight”.
This statement started a round of speculation and rumours: Is the dream of every eurofan going to finally come true and is Sergey Lazarev going to represent Russia?
Is Polina Gagarina going to follow the food steps of Dima Bilan and after her second place she will try to fight for the trophy?
Is Gregory Leps going to leave the chair of the Voice judge For Eurovision?
Is Russian television doing the same mistake with the German National Broadcaster sending homophobic Valeriya?
Did Emin decide to enter the Eurovision Song Contest after his experience at the interval act in 2012?
Or is RTR going to send Victoria Dayneko, the first ever winner of a talent show in Russia?
All above artists attended the event but no one answered directly to the question: are you the Russian representative at 2016 Eurovision Song Contest?
