Rumours have been working over time in regards to the Russian Eurovision pick for 2019 in the last few weeks. Initially scheduled for an announcement last week fans had been speculating that 2016 representative Sergey Lazarev was primed for a return to Eurovision in 2019. The rumours proved true today when the ‘You Are the Only One’ singer was announced as their pick by broadcaster Russia1.
Sergey will be hoping to improve on Russia’s recent Eurovision attempt when Yulia Samoilova gave Russia their first ever non qualification for the final when ‘I Won’t Break’ failed to make an impression on juries and the voting public.
Sergey’s song will be revealed at a later date be he is believed to have worked with the so called ‘Dream Team’ of Dimitris Kontopoulos, Philipp Kirkorov, and Fokas Evagelinos.
