Three years after he brought Russia to the top 3 with “You Are The Only One,” eurovision.tv has announced that Sergey Lazarev is returning to Eurovision! Months of speculation about which road Russia would take after their first NQ since the regular introduction of semifinals have ended with one of the most successful and well-known artists in their Eurovision history. No specific date has been given for a song reveal; composers also remain a mystery.
Sergey went to Eurovision 2016 a modest favorite, and did win the televote; a still-strong but ultimately costly fifth place with the jury kept him off the top of the board. Perhaps his song this year will help him overcome his hurdle with the juries!
Since Eurovision, Sergey has remained at the top of the Russian music scene, releasing popular songs such as “Шепотом.”
What do #YOU think of this choice? Were you a fan of “You Are The Only One,” and do you think Sergey can reach the same heights on the scoreboard as he did in 2016? Sound off on social media and on our forum!
