Russia has given its Junior Eurovision entry the same treatment that it gave to its Eurovision entry. Mere days after announcing tiny Alisa Kozhikina as its representative in Marsa, it has rushed to reveal the melody, entitled “Dreamer”, and has released a snazzy black and white video to go along with it. They seemed to have learned their lesson and skipped the bubblegum pink lipsyncing video this time around. Watch the video below.
The production put into the video is wonderful and Alisa has a fantastic voice. But after the wonderful “Mechtay” last year, I think Russia has taken a step backwards and relented on copying last year’s winner, Gaia Cauchi. That said, the competition lacked a power ballad until now, so this will add a bit of variety. Can a ballad compete against clubby floor stomping numbers like the Dutch “Around” and the Cypriot “I pio omorfi mera“? You decide!
What do you think of the song? Let us know in the comments.
