Eurovision 2021: Dream Team is ready for new adventures!

Philipp Kirkorov, as we told you, is in Elounda for his summer vacation, but that does not stop Dream Team from making plans for the next Eurovision song contest.

Dream Team ready for Eurovision 2021

Philipp Kirkorov, Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos are all together at Elounda Peninsula. In recent days, Natalia Gordienko, the representative of Moldova in Eurovision 2021, has been added to their company.

In a recent post, the Russian superstar states on behalf of the entire Dream Team, that the team is ready for new adventures in 2021:

Let us briefly present what adventures Philipp Kirkorov refers to:


What is a given is that the Dream Team will be behind the participation of Natalia Gordienko with Moldova in Eurovision 2021. Kirkorov and Kontopoulos will write the song, while Fokas Evangelinos will edit the stage appearance. Of course Elias Kokotos will be the project manager of the whole effort.


In Estonia we do not know if in 2021 the Dream Team will sign country’s participation. This year Uku Suviste, Ani Lorak’s contestant in The Voice, won the Eesti Laul with a song by Dimitris Kontopoulos. The director of the participation in Rotterdam would be Fokas Evangelinos. According to our information, the song of Uku Suviste in the next Esti Laul will have Dimitris Kontopoulos as composer again. If it wins the representation again, then the Dream Team will represent in Eurovision 2021 and Estonia.


In the case of Stefania, we do not have the active presence of Philipp Kirkorov, but the whole team will be behind the Greek participation for the second year. It is the second sure country that the Dream Team will take over at Eurovision 2021.

Another surprise country

It is known that every year the Dream Team receives proposals from various countries, but also artists, to undertake their participation in the competition. Thus, it is possible to see the Dream Team in another country, either as a direct assignment, or participating in a national final.

The Dream Team in its full composition, has not been found since 2007, when it participated for the first time in the competition, never outside the top ten of the standings. Since then they have represented Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Russia, Azerbaijan, presenting participations that almost always star!

Will they be able to win for the first time, at Eurovision 2021?

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.
