Russia: These are the candidates for the national final!

After yesterday’s article about the really high probability of not seeing the Little Big compete in the national final of Russia, we will now bring you the first information we have about the three artists we will see claiming the Russian representation in Eurovision 2021. Read more

Russia: Little Big will NOT take part in the national final for Eurovision 2021! UPDATED

Unfortunately and according to our exclusive and secure information, Little Big, the band that would represent Russia in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, will not be candindates in the national final on March 8, organized by the country’s public television, for artist and song selection for this year’s competition.

It is still unknown who the candidates will be, although given that this national final will last only 1 hour, it is easy to understand that there will be no more than five candidates.

The dancer who participates in the commercial trailer of the national final and also participated in the video clip of Little Big Uno, is not a member of the band, he just collaborated with them last year.

What we also know about Monday is the appearance of Natalia Gordienko who will perform “Sugar”, this year’s entry of Moldova. It is also known that both Phillip Kirkorov and Yulia Savicheva, Russia’s representative in 2004, will appear.

We remind you that Little Big was one of the big favorites in last year’s canceled contest, with the song Uno, which broke all records of views on the Eurovision YouTube channel.

UPDATE

Apparently the thriller will last until Monday, as newer information contradicts what we learned earlier. We apologize for the inconvenience, but at the moment nothing can be guaranteed with 100% certainty.

Little Big are thus added to the list of artists who would represent their country in last year’s contest, but do not return to Eurovision 2021!

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments related to the 65th Eurovision Song Contest!

Russia: Little Big say that they will definitely submit songs for Eurovision 2021!

Little Big, who are rumored to be re-selected by Russian public television (Channel 1) for the next contest, are essentially confirming their interest, but also that they will seek a new representation.

Russia: With Little Big in Eurovision 2021?

A very important speculation is circulating internet the last hour. According to the Russian Eurovision fan club VK, the CEO of the public broadcaster Channel1, Konstantin Ernst, has confirmed that Little Big will have a second chance to get on the Eurovision stage.

On 28th of September Channel 1 confirmed that it is going to be the responsible broadcaster for the selection of the representative of Russia at Eurovision 2021, since the 2020 was canceled. In Russia, there are two broadcasters that are members of the EBU, Channel 1 and RTR. Therefore the project is undertaken alternately by each channel.

If the speculation of the fan club VK is true, then Little Big will raise the number of the returning artists from 2020 to 23.

It is unknown yet when the speculations will be confirmed from Channel 1, since we are used to get the news from Russia at the very last moment.

Let’s remember the entry that was meant to compete at the 2020 contest, and was one of the hot favourites.

Russia: Watch the first live performance of “UNO” by Little Big

After announcing their bid for this year’s Eurovision Contest, Little Big performed live “UNO” for the first time.

Through the Vecherniy Urgant show, hosted by Ivan Urgant, who also presented the 2009 contest in Moscow, Little Big gave the first live performance of the entry for Rotterdam.

Watch their appearance in the video below:

 

Russia: Little Big “Uno” on YouTube Trends in Many European Countries

The popular Little Big band will be Russia’s representatives at the 65th Eurovision Contest. They will sing on the stage in Rotterdam the bubblegum-pop “Uno”.

The song was released alongside the video clip a few hours ago and has already surpassed 12 million views! Obviously, the majority of the projections come from Russia itself as it is a country with a population of over 145 million – as is the case with Russian participation each year – and yet another factor in their impressive views of participation is the fact that the clip was released live on the official Eurovision YouTube channel and not on their own.

However, “Uno” has already caused a sensation outside of Russia! The clip has entered YouTube trends in a number of European countries including Ukraine, France and Germany.

In detail, yesterday 13/3 “Uno” was found in the following countries trends:
# 1 Russia, Estonia, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine

# 8 Germany

# 11 Israel

# 16 Finland

# 17 Austria, France

# 19 United Kingdom

# 21 Spain

# 23 Czech Republic

# 29 Norway

# 37 Poland

# 45 Denmark

At the same time Russia is in the 5th place in the box office victory show while the band invites fans everywhere to follow the #unovisionchallenge in the app of Tik Tok!

Eurovision 2020: Bulgaria remains 1st- Boundary differences in top positions

With the  puzzle of the 41 Eurovision 2020 songs wrapped up yesterday, we can have a clearer picture of online betting odds. So far, it looks like we are heading into a race of 5 horses that will fight for the coveted victory in Rotterdam. Bulgaria, Lithuania, Iceland, Switzerland and Russia will cross their swords to win the contest!

The favorites

Bulgaria remains in 1st place, with one of the most beautiful ballads in this year’s competition. Victoria aims for her tears to be tears of joy rather than regret and to bring victory to our neighbors! One year after its absence from Tel Aviv, Bulgaria is in a “pole position” in the event of a victory. Just behind it is Lithuania. The participation that won the hearts of Europeans from the first moment they won the national final. The Roop are back in 2nd place, surpassing Iceland, which has been 3rd since the 1st in a week! But it does not cease to be a winning track.

On the upside we see Switzerland in 4th place, which in some betting companies is in the first place. A breath away from the three pioneers, it will not be surprising to soon be the new Top 3. Gjon’s Tears will attempt to give their country their first win since 1988 and Celine Dion! In fifth place is Russia, the day after the release of “Uno”. Despite being slightly behind other countries, Bear is 1st in at least 1 betting company.

The fact that in a total of 17 companies, all of the above countries occupy at least one of them, is a prime example of how dubious this year’s Eurovision is. This is perhaps an unprecedented statistic in the history of the institution. Bulgaria, Lithuania, Iceland, Switzerland and Russia to claim the victory in the Netherlands on equal terms!

The Top 10

In 6th place you can find Romania. Roxen is on the rise and may soon be in the Top 5! “Alcohol You” is one of the most atmospheric ballads of this year’s Eurovision. However, it will be required to go beyond the barriers of Bulgaria and Switzerland of the same species. Italy remain in 7th place, with Azerbaijan and Malta completing the top ten.

Samira Efendi will bring Oriental perfume to Ahoy Rotterdam’s stage and as another Cleopatra wants to surprise the crowds! The 17-year-old Destiny, Malta’s representative, may well give the Islanders their first appearances in the top 10. Top 10 closes with Germany and Benjamin Dolic!

Much can change in the next two months. The returns, as it stands, will go through several ups and downs. Party appearances, stage presence information and of course the appearances at Ahoy in Rotterdam can be brought up on the boards of betting companies. Nothing will be judged until the night of May 16 and the big Eurovision final!

Russia: Listen to Little Big’s “UNO” for Eurovision 2020

As it has been known for months, Russia would choose this year’s Eurovision entry by direct assignment. After months of “silence” it  has been announced a few days before that it would be represented in Rotterdam by the unconventional Little Big!

For a few days everyone has been waiting for the unveiling of the song that Russia will compete with at Eurovision 2020. So, the song that will be claimed by “Bear” for its 2nd victory in the contest is entitled “Uno”. “Uno” is based on the familiar satirical features of Little Big. This is probably the first time Russia has chosen something so unconventional to represent it at Eurovision!
