Morden Kaiser from Denmark
WOW, what a video Russia presented to us. Much energy and fire. That’s always a good start. Enough with the endless songs about peace and harmony. This year Russia goes for “the only one”, a song to the one you love. Sergey has a great voice, not doubt of that, and this is a strong song. Especially the middle with a slower part before the big finale is perfect! Maybe it doesn’t bring much new, but it’s nice to listen to and Russia will do very well again this year. There is a lot of hype about this song already now. Will this song win? Maybe it will. And if Russia wins it will be because of the singer, not just the song. But for sure there will be a huge party in the crowd during this performance. After hearing the song performed live it is clear, why Russia is represented by Sergey this year.
Fotis Konstantopoulos from Greece
Russian entry has the winning package all over it : a strong melody, an amazing performer and Fokas Evangelinos as the stage director. The “dream team” of Eurovision is coming back with the best they have ever done and the only thing that remains to be seen is if politics will be able to stop them from winning.
Jaime Solloso from Spain
When a country puts the work in to present a song and ensure that they not only look to do well but actually win, you can tell. Sergey is not only a big star on the music scene but he is immense in Russia, take nothing away, this son gis by far an amazing one. The lyrics work well, there is excellent use of tempo and Sergey ensures that his vocals evoke not only the right vocal performance but also the right mix of passion and pain. We need to await what the stage performance will be like, please no ice skaters going around in circles! This is by far one of the strongest performers and could easily walk away with victory by quite a lot.
