Watch Katya Ryabova’s official video for “Like Romeo and Juliet.” She’ll represent Russia at Junior Eurovision 2011. Lyrics follow the video.
Philipp Kirkorov—he who makes appalling Eurovision covers—is used to giving audiences a scare. But a fan turned the tables on the 44-year old recently in Tashkent, Uzbekistan by touching Kirkorov’s gold-sequined cardigan when he wasn’t looking.

YouTube users have accused the Danish entry, A Friend in London, of stealing their entire melody from Andreas Johnson’s 2006 […]
The press can’t get enough of Russian hottie Alexey Vorobyov, and it’s clear that the eurovision.tv film crew loves watching him flip his wavy hair back and forth. Alexey has become a front-runner in this year’s competition, but the Russian hasn’t always been so hyped in Eurovision circles.
