Undeserved winner... So bad and boring. I dislike everything about it... And no instant appeal. It kinda gets better after a 1000 listenings...

I actually thought the song arrangement was really good and the melody was decent but the singer was bloody awful. Dima aka the goat has an incredibly annoying voice and the stage performance was so dramatic and over the top

"oh look at me, my shirt's open how did that happen? Now look at me and lick my porno goatee". Seriously, i wish we had juries then.

I agree he wasn't the best and didn't deserve to win, but come on, the song was good and he was wonderful on the stage.
IMO he deserved it as he shows he is a very good artist, but the song was just ok and certainly not enough for winning ;)

Well,since I started to watch eurovision in 2009,I have nothing against Dima.Lucian said he knew he will win even before he had the song and that sucks.I read in many articles he got a special attention in Belgrade in 2008..Anyway,my fave Russian entry is still from him,but the 2006 one.
I loved the shirt part,but,well,I'm a girl :lol:

Ewww, that is all. I still don't get why this won, other than Dima Bilan already being so damn famous. The song itself isn't that bad, but his delivery.... his voice just breaks on those falsetto notes, it sounds comical and annoying. It seems there's a winner i strongly dislike exactly every 3 years.... 2005 with My Number One, 2011 with Running Scared, hmmm....

Just watched the live performance for the first time since probably 2008. What a hot mess, it looks like Dima stole a candle from a restaurant at the start of the song and then you think he's going to drink it, but then he just keeps fluctuating vocally and making awkward glances at the camera, and it's all just a terrible performance really. I wonder did Dima Bilan really win it for Russia that year or was it Evgeni Plushenko that brought the votes in?
