WATCH: The Tolmachevy Sisters release their Eurovision song Shine

On Saturday we reported that the Tolmachevy sisters will represent Russia at Eurovision this year. The adorable duo, who won Junior Eurovision back in 2006, are all grown up. That’s evident from their more sophisticated look and their entry “Shine”. You can listen to it below.

The song has two heavyweights behind it. Philip Kirkorov, who represented Russia in 1995, composed the song along with Dimitris Kontopoulos, the Greek composer behind several successful ESC numbers.

The lyrics were written by Gerard James Borg, together with John Ballard and Ralph Charlie.

The Tolmachevy sisters are the second set of twins competing at Eurovision this year, with France’s Twin Twin being the other. The last time two sets of twins competed at Eurovision was in 2011, when Slovakia’s TWiiNS squared off against Ireland’s Jedward.

What do you think of their number? Can they become the first pair of twins ever to win Eurovision? And are you relieved that we’re not going to Russia in 2015?

Tolmachevy Sisters – Shine lyrics

Verse 1
Been looking at the sky
wishing on a star
waiting for a brand new start

Living on the edge
closer to the crime
cross the line a step at a time

Now maybe there’s a place
maybe there’s a time
maybe there’s a day you’ll be mine

Now something’s got to give
make a brighter day
all we got to say

Chorus
Shine into my darkness
shine into the night, my rising sun
drive away the madness
Can you be a masterpiece of love
Sending out a message out above
Telling all the world to show some love
No one’s gone bring me down, bring me down
You are my rising sun

Verse 2
Keep looking up ahead
riding like a wind
open up your heart, let me in

My life is on a string
when I see you smile
our love will last a thousand miles

Now maybe there’s a place
maybe there’s a time
maybe there’s a day you’ll be mine

Now something’s got to give
make a brighter day
all we got to say
