He’s the one-time X Factor star who famously set out to “Get You” at Eurovision 2011. And at the beginning of February, Alexey Vorobyov — the artist also known as Alex Sparrow — released his first single of 2017, “Ya Prosto Hochu Priekhat” (or “I Just Want To Come”).

Alex always puts a lot of effort into his video productions.

This time he offers us a two-part miniseries, which he directed himself.

The lyrics video, which is basically part one, shows clips of Alex and his partner — played by Anna Flavia Gavlak –embracing the joys of love. Everything’s wonderful and idyllic…

… until we get to the official music video. Here, the happy couple have split. Alex is visibly shattered and desperately wants to get back with his former flame.

“I just want to come back”, he sings, “I want to be near you.”

Unfortunately, the girl seems to be over him, and she refuses to reconcile. The blonde pop star takes the blame for the whole situation.

“I wanted to tell her how much I loved her, but I didn’t manage to say it,” he confesses, “Now there are no excuses left.”

Russia at Eurovision

Alex Sparrow represented Russia at Eurovision 2011 with “Get You”, a song co-written by RedOne. In spite of its ambitious production, the entry stalled at 16th place.

However, Russia is one of the most successful countries in recent Eurovision history. Since their debut in 1994, they have had twelve top 10 finishes, including three third places, four second places and one victory.

They did not take part in 1998 and 1999, and failed to qualify for the Eurovision Song Contest 1996 through the audio-only pre-qualification round. Impressively, the country has never missed the final since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004.

Last year, Russia controversially finished in the third place, despite placing first with the public.

Russia is still to announce their representative for Kyiv, but rumours are already circulating as to who they might send.
