Russia: Three artists for the final selection | Dream Team’s participation is in doubt | EXCLUSIVE

This year’s entry of Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest will literally be announced in the last minute. The country’s public television, even at the time of writing, has not yet reached the song, nor the artist, who will represent Russia in Turin, with three names remaining on the table.

Three artists are still in the crisis of the Russian public television, Russia 1, for the representation of the country in Eurovision 2022. Although we are in the last ten days of February, Russia 1 has not made its final decisions.

Today 22/2, the Dream Team had another meeting for this purpose, with the management of the Russian public television, to discuss these three names. Two of them are women and one is a male artist.

According to our exclusive information, the Dream Team would undertake the difficult task of this year’s Russian representation in the competition (judging by the general political developments), in case one of the two artists they have proposed to Russia 1 for several months was selected. However, if the third artist on this list is finally selected, then the possibility that Dream Team will not represent Russia this year is the most probable.

The final decision as mentioned above has not been made, although it is expected to be finalized in the next 24 hours. Of course, due to time pressure, the song will be released at the end of the deadline, ie on the weekend of March 12-13.

We are waiting with interest for the final decisions of the Russian public television, on which, of course, the decisions of the Dream Team will depend. The only thing that is certain is that Russia will normally take part in Eurovision 2022, regardless of political developments.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments regarding the Russian participation in Eurovision 2022!

Greece: The final master of Amanda’s song in Moscow!

We are now in the final stretch, as we are counting the days for the announcement of the song with which Amanda will represent Greece at Eurovision 2022.

As we can see through the social media of both Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos, at the moment in the leading recording studio in Moscow, with the assistance of one of the most important mechanical sounds in the country of Andrew Konoplev, the final master of the Greek entry is taking place.

Just as it happened with the final production of Last Dance, the Greek participation in this year’s competition will receive its final touches in Moscow, in the recording studio of Andrew Konoplev. Andrew Konoplev has edited Russia’s greatest successes in recent years.

The Greek delegation maintains its optimism, shortly before the official release of the video clip and while the bets bring Greece to the top5.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments of the Greek participation in Eurovision 2022!

Russia: Dream Team is in Moscow in view of the final choice for the country’s representation!

The Dream Team (Dimitris Kontopoulos and Ilias Kokotos) is in Moscow, as we see through their social network accounts. This trip to the Russian capital is the most important one, in relation to the representation of the country in Eurovision 2022.

It is no secret that every second year, when channel Russia 1 undertakes the participation of Russia in the competition, the channel cooperates with the Dream Team, which in fact has brought them a lot of good results so far. It is also no secret that one of the names with which the Dream Team would like to collaborate for Eurovision 2022 is the superstar Klava Koka. In fact, Klava Koka was in Athens a few months ago, recording in the studio of Dimitris Kontopoulos, probably a potential song for the competition.

Of course, nothing should be taken for granted, since if the artist who Russia 1 has chosen does not satisfy the Dream Team as a choice, then it is not at all unlikely that they will eventually not be chosen for this year’s Russian participation.

It remains to be seen what the decisions of both the Russian public television and the Dream Team will be. The time for the final decision in Russia has arrived!

Greece: With the boost of the 2nd place of the bets, the shooting of the video clip in Symi begins!

The Greek delegation arrived in Symi, for the shooting of the video clip of the Greek entry in Eurovision 2022. The second place in which the bets bring Greece to victory in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, fills the team with optimism and confidence, but also with a greater anxiety, since everyone’s lights are now falling on Amanda and her song.

The 19-member Greek delegation has been in Symi for a few minutes now! In fact, the official Eurovision ERT account made sure to inform us in the most beautiful way about this:

Armenia: Dream Team did not finally submit a song for Eurovision 2022!

Yesterday (31/1), the deadline for submitting entries to the public television of Armenia, by the artists who participated in the closed selection for Eurovision 2022, ended. Despite what was rumored in the previous period, the Dream Team did not submit a song.

The winner of last year’s New Wave Festival, Saro Gevorgyan, had traveled to Moscow the previous days to meet Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov. Naturally, everyone assumed that the song that Saro would submit to the internal process of Armenia, would be with the signature of Dream Team. However, according to our exclusive information, Dream Team’s decision was not to submit a song, which means that the song submitted by Saro has another composer.

We remind you that the three artists claiming to represent Armenia at Eurovision 2022, apart from the shocking unexpected, are Saro Gevorgyan, Kamil and Athena Manukyan.

The decision on the name of the artist who will represent the country in Turin is expected quite soon, maybe before February 10.

Armenia participates in the Second Half of the First Semifinal of Eurovision 2022, hoping to be in the final for the first time after 2017!

Which artist would you like to see represent Armenia in Eurovision 2022?

Exclusive: Dream Team arrives in Moscow for the final preparations before Eurovision 2022

Dimitris Kontopoulos is in Moscow today, together with Elias Kokotos. There they will of course meet Philipp Kirkorov, while they will spend a lot of time in the studio, completing or preparing the projects that they will present at Eurovision 2022.

Russia

It is no secret, Philipp Kirkorov has said on various occasions, that the Dream Team will represent Russia in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, except for a shocking surprise. So, at a time when Russian public television is still silent about its intentions in relation to the contest, this trip could not be unrelated to the country’s representation in Turin.

Various names are already rumored, with Klava Koka and Alexander Panayotov at the top of the discussion and scripts. Eurovisionfun is able to know that Dream Team has submitted more than one song to Russia 1 channel and is now in the waiting phase of decisions.

In Russia, which is Christmas today, they like last minute announcements. We remind you that last year it was literally announced that a national final will be held in the last minute, without the participation of the Little Big, something that you first read through Eurovisionfun.

So what is expected is the final recording of these songs submitted by Dream Team on Russia 1 channel, so that everything is ready to move on, as soon as the official announcement is made.

Armenia

Also not a secret is Philipp Kirkorov’s support for Saro Gevorgyan, winner of the last New Wave Festival. Saro, who is at the peak of his career, is considered one of the favorites to represent Armenia at Eurovision 2022.

Armenian public television, after its recent victory in Junior Eurovision, has not yet announced that it will choose its representative in the competition, although most information states that it will make an internal selection, according to the standards followed by ERT.

According to the information on our website, Saro is expected to meet in Moscow with Philipp Kirkorov, Dimitris Kontopoulos and Elias Kokotos, in order to work on the song with which the young artist will claim the representation of Armenia in Turin.

Greece

Finally, it is now a habit for Dimitris Kontopoulos to do the final mixing of the Eurovision songs in which he participates in any way, in one of the best recording studios in Moscow, VI Sound Studios, always with the assistance of Andrey Konoplev, a top sound engineer in Russia.

Given the fact that Amanda will soon be coming to Greece for the shooting of the video clip of the Greek participation and that it should have been completed, you understand that the possibility, the final mix of the Greek entry to take place at VI Sound Studios, is something more than likely.

With a lot of work ahead of them, in view of Eurovision 2022, the Dream Team is preparing for another Eurovision Song Contest.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the information about the Dream Team at Eurovision 2022!

Дрим Тим: Все о подготовке команды к конкурсу в Турине!

Димитрис Контопулос сегодня уже в Москве вместе с Илиасом Кокотосом. Там они, конечно же, встретятся с Филиппом Киркоровым и проведут много времени в студии, доделывая или готовя заявки, которые будут представлены на Евровидении в этом году.

Россия

Как уже неоднократно заявлял Филипп Киркоров, Dream Team будет представлять Россию на предстоящем конкурсе. Общественное российское телевидение пока хранит молчание о своих намерениях, однако эта поездка не может не иметь отношения к подготовке страны к Евровидению.

Уже ходят слухи о различных именах, среди которых присутствуют такие артисты, как Клава Кока и Александр Панайотов. Eurovisionfun стало известно, что Dream Team отправила более одной песни каналу “Россия 1” и сейчас ожидает ответа от них.

В России, где сегодня празднуется Рождество, любят объявлять все в последнюю минуту. Напоминаем, что в прошлом году буквально в пять часов было объявлено о проведении национального финала, без участия Little Big, о чем вы впервые прочитали на Eurovisionfun.

Пока ожидается окончательная запись этих песен. Все начнет двигаться вперед, как только будет сделано официальное объявление.

Армения

Саро Геворкян, который находится на пике своей карьеры, является одним из фаворитов, чтобы представить Армению на масштабном песенном конкурсе. Недавно он стал победителем “Новой волны”, где удивил членов жюри вокальными способностями.

Общественное телевидение Армении после недавней победы на Детском Евровидении еще ничего не объявило, однако по слухам из Еревана, страна проведет внутренний отбор, аналогичный тому, что было у ERT.

Согласно информации на нашем сайте, ожидается встреча Саро в Москве с Филиппом Киркоровым, Димитрисом Контопулосом и Элиасом Кокотосом для работы над песней, с которой молодой артист будет претендовать на то, чтобы представить Армению в Турине.

Греция

Димитрис Контопулос любит делать окончательное сведение(микширование) песен в одной из лучших студий звукозаписи в Москве, VI Sound Studios, при содействии Андрея Коноплева.

Учитывая тот факт, что Аманда скоро поедет в Грецию для съемок видеоклипа, можно утверждать, что окончательный микс песни Греции возможно состоится именно в VI Sound Studios.

Spain: Jorge Gonzalez in the studio of Dimitris Kontopoulos to record his song for Benidorm! EXCLUSIVE

Jorge Gonzalez is in Athens where in the coming days, according to our safe and exclusive information, he will record in the studio of Dimitris Kontopoulos, the song that he will submit to the Spanish public television for Benidorm, the festival through which the representative of the country will emerge at Eurovision 2022.

The 33-year-old singer became famous in Spain through his participation in Operacion Triunfo in 2006. Although he failed to be the winner of the talent show, he gained great popularity, which gave him the opportunity to sign a record deal with Universal Vale Music.

In 2009 she participated in the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Si yo vengo a enamorarte, occupying the ninth place.

Since 2006 he has released two complete albums and several singles. This year he participated in the New Wave Festival, finishing in third place, but receiving very positive reviews.

Jorge Gonzalez will be in Athens in the coming days in order to work with Dimitris Kontopoulos on the song, with which he hopes to be in Turin in May!

The Benidorm Song Festival is expected to feature 12 artists with 12 separate songs. The system provides for the existence of two semifinals, in which 6 songs will take part respectively. Three artists from each semifinal will advance to the Benidorm Grand Final.

The big winner and representative of Spain in Eurovision 2022 will be selected by 50% by the preference of two juries and by 50% by the will of the Spanish viewers. Both juries will be composed of professionals in the field, with one consisting only of natives and the other being an international one. The results of the juries will come from 60% of the Spanish jury and 40% of the international ones.

Greece: Listen to a teaser from Stefania’s “Mucho Calor”!

Shortly before its official release on June 25, Stefania presents a 30-second teaser of her new single entitled, Mucho Calor. The song will be presented for the first time on the stage of MAD VMA 2021!

You also read about the history of the song in our previous article. Mucho Calor has karmic relation to the contest, since three times in the past it came close to representing either Greece or Cyprus, but the final choice was always different.

Mucho Calor was originally submitted to ERT for Eurovision 2020. Although the song was first in the focus group voting that dream team held that year, SUPERG! RL was finally chosen, as a song that Stefania could better support.

Then the composers of the song suggested it to Sandro, who even recorded it and it was one of the songs that RIK had on the table, for the Cypriot representation at Eurovision 2020. But Sandro wanted a song that would have his personal of touch and so the song did not end there either.

With some changes, Mucho Calor, but also with a different title (Inferno), the song was submitted in 2021 to ERT. In fact, the artistic committee of the Greek public television initially wanted this to be the song with which Stefania would represent Greece in Rotterdam. Finally, considering the scenarios for the stage presentation, but also other factors, such as the voting of the juries, Last Dance was chosen.
