2006, 2008, 2009, 2012. thats 4 times dima bilan has graced the eurovision stage. and he has gone from awesome in 2006, to pitiful in 2012. he reeks of attention seeking and desperation.

russia was one of my favourites in 2011 with peter nalitch (a shock to me too lol) and 2012 with alex sparrow. while i wish alex would get a second chance (or at least release an english album!) i would love nothing more than to see sergey lazarev in with a chance!

I heard that Russians on some societies want Singers to perfom on their own ( Russian) language. And I hope next year after Grannies that sang on their native Udmurt language and came so far to victory more singers on election will sing in Russian. I hope so ahah but anyway I don't like Russian perofomers the best was Bilan in 2006 in 2008 he was craaaaap

Hmm, I highly disagree that Russian language artists are bad and Bilan is by far not the best they sent.

But, I think they will scrap the idea about pop in English and go for something more genuine or local pop atleast.

Considering juries are in and care mostly about live vocals, it's a safe bet to say both Yulia and Lena would fail cause they both suck live.

2) The national selection will be on TV. Country will choose winner. The winner of the show "The Voice" will be possible to participate in the selection.
3) the closure of national selection.

Dima Bilan is very far from the bad singer, on the contrary he is great and successful singer. He had irritating personality yes but thats opposite side of the medal.

This year I hope for some big names from Russia, maybe Slava (Odinočestvo is great song), Zhana Friske (it will be fantastic), Yolka ( Ёлка - her song Provans is masterpiece) or one of great pop groups like In-Yan (I'm in love with that band, Kamikadze, Pofig, Karma, Ne otpustkay moey ruki, Malo pomalu.....)

Yolka is Ukrainian, In-Yan is also a partly Ukrainian group. Those two could be ok though but we all know the drama last time a Ukrainian would represent Russia :lol:

Zhana Friske? No thanx ... she's not even a big name really, and she should stick to acting although I admit she has some fun songs but not enough to convince me she would be a good pick for ESC (I doubt she can even sing).

It's not that hilarious. I dislike Bilan a lot, but he IS a really good singer. I mean not with the $#!t that he sings, but he does have a really good voice. He is a professionally taught classical singer (The Gnessin State Musical College)
he participated in the Russian reality show Phantom of the Opera, where pop singers had to take on opera, musicals and so on. He did pretty well.

In Russia the two main national broadcasters have been alternating the Eurovision Song Contest participation in the past years. While this year the organisation was with Rossiya 1, in 2013 the responsibility for the song contest is again with Channel One Russia.

The channel has not announced yet how they are going to select their entry for Malm, but willing songwriters are already invited to submit their material via the Channel One website using a special online form.

Alsou (ESC 2000) just released her new song in Tatar language (she previously released her first full studio album in the Tatar language back in 2008).

The Babushkis entry in 2012 was partly in a regional/local language, and there are plenty of local languages in Russia. Something like this could be interesting maybe?

I really like Alsou and although I liked the 2000 entry, it didn't really showcase what type of artist she really is to Europe since she never really was a Pop act to begin with. I think she did a good job co-hosting the ESC final in Moscow back in 2009 and as for comebacks she'd be a name I'd like to see again.

Another suggestion (which have been brought up in this thread previously) is Polina Gagarina. Unlike too many Russian Pop acts it seems she can actually sing pretty well live, she's also very good looking and is one of the newer "stars" in Russian Pop.

Here performing on a New Year's show one of the biggest hits in Russia and ex-USSR region in 2012 (and I'm surprised at this show being live since many shows like these in Russia are playback):

Agreed,if anyone come back to ESC,that should be Alsou.As i know she was only 17 while singing Solo in ESC 2000 and it was the best performance of that year.And her voice could go for a ballad too.

Well, she usually sings ballads and more 'adult-oriented' stuff. Actually 'Solo' was not a good representation for her as an artist, because although being young she was never a 'pop' artist to begin with.

I mean this was her second single from her debut album (16 years old):


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgc6WaYbP0k

And this was what she released just a year after entering 'Solo' in ESC, the first single from her debut album re-release:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrP_O4UM3nI

... and more or less all her stuff have sounded like this, so 'Solo' was really aimed for ESC and the international market.

Another great pick would be Niusha, apparently she composed and wrote this song (atleast according to the hosts... I was a bit surprised), and it seems she's pretty good live aswell. I doubt though she'd go because she is the new "it girl" on the Russian Pop scene and seems Russia is becoming more like many other countries when it comes to popular and successful dismissing ESC participating... but one can wish.

Here from the annual "Song of the year" show recently:

Nyusha is amazing, i don't get people who constantly say she cannot sing live, all the live performances of her i've seen were in the "Not bad at all-Awesome" range, she's one of those rare artists who can give an ass-kick performance+choreography+vocals.And she has some amazing songs too, she's a song writer, so to me it's the best choice.

She wasn't singing live at "Song of the Year" but she can sing live.
If you look for "Red Star" performance (I would, but Youtube is blocked at my work) it was live. There is a difference, and you can hear she is out of breath by the middle of the song, but she sticks with it and still sounds good, hitting all the notes.
She could just move less at Eurovision, or up her stamina and breathing technique by the time she has to go live in front of Europe.
Things like that a fixable.

Actually, the Pesnya Goda performance comes off as live to me tbh...

It's pretty uncommon with live performances in Russian shows so either she did a convincing pre- show vocal recording because it doesn't come off as many of the other preformances.

these days a lot of Russian performers record live-like track for their songs. Very few shows on Russian tv can boast live vocals. But like I said, Niusha can and has been singing live, so it's not a problem for her.
She might be a good representative from Russia. She also might rack few more votes from TVDs fans. She looks like a long lost twin sister of Nina Dobrev lol

It cannot be the winner of course, because russian audience doesn't seem to be able to read between the lines, the show is called The Voice so they picked a girl that only has a voice...and nothing more, which is a bad bad idea when it comes to Eurovision!

The concept of Eurovision is songs representing their countries, if all entries will be imported from other countries then we could just start "The Voice of Europe" instead because obviously the whole "representing" bit is not important any longer.

How can one with a straight face fly the flag for their countries but with an entry written, composed and produced by some other countries' people? I don't get that... where's the pride in that?

Even Dina is great singer and a big talent I hope that Russia this year will stay at semi. Their obsession with western music is not normal. The biggest country in the world with a long tradition don't respect herself. And what to expect from countries as Malta, Slovenia, Moldova......

Yeah... I mean their last entry was so freaking westernized... Seeing 5 grandmas on a stage in national clothes baking bread, I mean you can just see that it was completely influenced by the Western countries... It's a shame...

^^ Songwise it was indeed a mix of western and eastern musical influences. But yeah, this year they are attempting to copycat the anglo 'pop' culture. Such a shame as a powerful country like Russia totally is not in the need of knuckling down. I consider this strategy a lame attempt to cater to the 'jury' but they will probably try to hurt them regardless of what they send.

Well, those years were the "breathing-years" after Russia's win... in most attempts in the 00's they were trying to cater to western ears however... and now a blatant way of trying to cater to the juries. It's a sad thing seeing a huge nation with an own rich culture sucking up to others like this...

Last year: Germany sent a British song and the UK with Spain sent Swedish songs...all three are very powerful countries with rich culture...but only Russia is forbidden to send songs of foreign writers, yes?;)
As I remember, only Alsou and Sparrow had non-Russian songs before . Two times since 1994, only two! Why do you try to show that Russia buys songs every year? :? Where is the point?

Those lyrics were tragically hilarious and highly political (perhaps EBU accepted it because they were not explicitly out there or/ and because it was the Russian entry)...

I remember Russia even got booed on stage in Kiev that year (no wonder considering they interfered with the internal political affairs back then... well they still do but back then with the whole aftermath of the Orange revolution it was perhaps more sensitive and that song was almost like a anti-western/USA message type of entry and in hindsight one can guess it was an anti- "Orange Ukraine" message aswell).

The song:

Diana Garipova - What if

21:00 CET?
Are you sure?
It's unlikely they are going to present the song at 00:00 Moscow time, so it must be 21:00 Moscow time which is 18:00 CET, i believe.

Thx! Anyways, i'm sure the song will be uploaded on YT in an hour or so, cause of the huge time difference between different regions of Russia people in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski will be already watching it at 21:00 local time when people only wake up in Moscow)

I guess this is the song! Seems like a great singer. The song seems quite likable as well, even though it will probably not be my favourite this year. In a year with relatively few ballads this might do VERY well!!!!

No chance, Ukraine has a better ballad sang by a better singer with strong charisma and stage presence while Dina has only a good voice but she's a bland and boring performer.
It's just a nice song, nothing more, i'll give it 6-7 points.

Don't know about #1. So far, the jury #1s have been Alexander Rybak, Lena, Raphael Gualazzi and Loreen. Not a cheesy ballad in sight. There's plenty in their top tens, but I think they're just as likely to give Norway or Denmark their first place as Russia.

Let's just hope the juries won't vote as in the semis then, do I need to remember people of their #1 in the semi 1 of 2011? The CHEESIEST and kitchiest of cheesefest ballads EVER in ESC !
