So what do you think about the Russian singer Alexey Vorobyov in Eurovision?



Alexey Vorobyov sings "Get You" as Russia's entry for the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J4-T22p0y4



He sings in english: the international language. 


I think he will be famous in Russia. 


Anyway I think he will be better if he danses with girls as Russian girls are pretty

The motto for the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest is “Light your fire!”  On Tuesday night, Buranovo Grannies, who represent Russia at the song contest in the Azeri capital of Baku, managed to turn this motto into reality on stage of the Cristall Hall.  The six “Russian ladies”, this is how foreign reporters dubbed the grannies, made it to the final round of the main song contest of Europe. More than 100 million people in different countries watched the first semifinals on TV.


Already before the start of the 1st semifinal Buranovo Grannies were undisputed favorites. People sang their contest song “Party for everybody” in the streets, the contest’s organizers and reporters confessed their love to them. During the performance many reporters were dancing and waving Russian flags and Russian fans were even dancing on the chairs

It was even more exciting to watch the count of votes as the contest’ hosts announced the winners one after another but the grannies were not among them. Finally Russia was announced and the Russian press center was in raptures.  In an interview with the “Voice of Russia” the group’s manager Maria Tolstukhina said she had felt so nervous before.


"My heart was beating very fast, it was very exciting. I had no doubts about the grannies at all. For some reason, I thought that they would take the tenth place. I knew that if the grannies came to Europe the people would love them but I did not think that this love would be so strong. That kind of atmosphere makes the grannies’ sing even ore soulfully. They are not only singing but they are really rocking. They feel that the audience loves them."


During their performance the Russian ladies rocked the house as much as their younger competitors. After the show one of the grannies – Galina Nikolayevna Koneva represented Russia at a press conference that ended only early in the morning. She said that they could feel the support of the viewers when they were performing.


"Thank you everyone who voted for us, to all our fans, our relatives and all of you. We are very delighted that in the concert hall and backstage people welcomed us and reporters wanted to interview us. The storm of applause was louder than the music."


Shortly before the start of the semifinals the members of the group showed up at the press conference creating a real boom. Many reporters even climbed the walls to take photos of the grannies. Ado Mircoshevic, a reporter who regularly comes to the Eurovision said he had not seen such a boom in a long time.

Georgia’s representative at this contest Henri Dzhohadze, who is to participate in the second semifinal, also supported the grannies.


"These babushkas they are so nice. I can’t judge about the song but how they sing it. I like them very much I really honestly wish them success because they are sincere and they are just fantastic!"


On May 26, Buranovo Grannies will enter the stage of the Cristal hall under number 6, received on the results of the draw.

Lovely Natalia can always come over and play footy with me:)

Pity RUSSIA didn't win but it will score more then the winner in the media, i-pods,TV a.o.

I think the best song was by that singer from Albania; best voice and no "circus" around her...
