Participant(s): Dima Bilan Song: Believe Writer(s): Dima Bilan & Jim Beanz Composer(s): Dima Bilan & Jim Beanz
Russia has joined the Eurovision family in 1994. Since that Russia always sent high quality entries and these were almost all quite successful, recently 2nd and 3rd places. Also big names like t.A.T.u., Alla Pugachova and Alsou proofed that the Russians take it very seriously with the Eurovision Song Contest. By the way Russia is also very keen to host this event one day in Moscow.
This year it looks quite good for that huge country. The Russians have decided that Dima Bilan should go to Belgrade. It’s going to be the second appearance at Eurovision for him. In Athens 2006 he sang “Never let you go” and came second! That song was a real hit throughout Europe. By now his name must have been heard all over Europe.
Dima’s new song is called “Believe” and this one is even more a heartwarming ballad compared with his last entry. So it’s going to be the first time that Russia sends a singer for the second time to Eurovision. That’s definitely a good sign. Due to his popularity, good voice, good looks and a perfect stage appearance – remember the white piano, the ballet dancers and the rose leaves - he will be one of the big favorites this year.
