RUSSIA – The winner of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest tele voting, Sergey Lazarev seems quite intrigued to return to the Eurovision Song Contest after his recent interview to Russian magazine LIFE.ru.
I do not think about that now. The contest ended just two months ago, and I’m really happy that my life was such a great experience. When I went to the competition, I immediately said what is important is not the place for me, which I take, but it is important to adequately represent Russia. I think we did the maximum, I am satisfied with my performance. The TV audience, the audience gave us the first place, and it is — a great success. So now I do not think about returning to the Eurovision.
There are indeed voices around the artist and from the Eurofans asking him to return to the Eurovision Song Contest in order to take revenge after what happened in Stockholm last May. Well obviously he is not going to return in 2017 Eurovision Song Contest but the impression and the intentions are highly positive for a near future return.
In the meantime, Sergey performed at Slavianski Bazaar, presented his brand new video “Breaking Away”, also penned by Greek composer Dimitris Kontopoulos and recently performed with Helena Paparizou at MAD VMA.
