Eng/Rus ‼️The time has come: Saturday 9 March at 16.00 CET we will release the Eurovision entry for Russia. I really hope you will all LOVE the song as much as I did from the first time I listened to it. This is a new journey for me and I am so excited for it. Thank you @fkirkorov not only for your contribution to the song, but most of all for being always there for me like a brother. True friendship exists in show business and you are the best example of this. Thank you @dimitriskontopoulos for this powerful melody, the great production and all of the hours of work you have spent for this song. @Sharon_Vaughn your words gave meaning to the melody. It’s an honor working with you and singing your lyrics. @moscow_symphony_orchestra your contribution gave a different meaning to the song. I am so glad that we managed to bring live orchestra back to eurovision, even in this way. @the_andrew_weed you are the best sound engineer I have ever worked with. @alexpanayi thank you for your patience, you are a true professional. Finally the biggest thanks goes to everyone in channel “Russia” for trusting me, for the second time, to represent our country. I promise you all to do my best in order to honor your decision. “Tears aren’t quiet things …” #sergeylazarev #сергейлазарев #eurovision2019 #Russia photo by @dvelichko ❤️

First of all, Sergey thanked his close friend Philipp Kirkorov for his constant support admitting that Philipp is a great example which proves that friendship exists at Show Business. Furthermore he didn’t forget to thank some of the Greek members of the “Dream Team”, the composer Dimitris Kontopoulos and the vocal coach Alex Panayi. Additionally, Sergey Lazarev didn’t only thank the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, but also dared to comment that they managed to bring live orchestra back to the Eurovision Song Contest in a way!

But the most important of all, is that we got to know the songwriter, who is the well-known in Eurovision fields Mary Sharon Vaugh. The American songwriter, who lives and works in Sweden, has already cooperated with some of the most popular Eurovision stars, like Mans Zelmerlow, Charlotte Perrelli, Jedward, Alcazar, Boyzone, etc. She also wrote Helena Paparizou’s song “Survivor”, which she competed at Melodifestivalen 2014 with.

Besides the making of the song, there are many other people who work for the best result the Russian delegation can bring. Some of them are the scene director Fokas Evagelinos and the project manager Ilias Kokotos.

The title of the song as it seems is “Scream”. Sergey revealed also a small part of the lyrics:

“Tears aren’t quiet things …”

Let’s not forget that Sergey’s reputation put Russia at the first place of the bookmarkers leaving his hard opponent, Sweden, at the second place with a growing difference. We only have to wait and see whether the song meet fans’ high expectations and let Russia keep being the leader at the odds.
