Not surprisingly, it has now been announced that Russia will be selecting its representative internally for the Eurovision Song Contest for another year.
In 2012 we had to go for the last national final of Russia, when Buranovskiye Babushk, the grandmothers, managed to win Dima Bilan and then came second in the contest, which was held in Baku, Azerbaijan that year.
As Iurii Aksiuta, a Eurovision commentator for Channel One, revealed on Instagram Story, Russia is in the midst of an artist selection for Eurovision 2020 a after the end of Junior Eurovision 2019 on Sunday night!
Some names have already been heard: Olga Buzova, Alexander Panayotov and Dima Bilan, who wants to return for the third time. Olga Buzova is a television personality who, a few months ago, invited Philipp Kirkorov to sing together at the next Eurovision, while Alexander Panayotov has been trying to compete at ESC since 2005, but still holds the second place in all the national finals!
