After many rumours surrounding his participation, it is now confirmed that former Russian representative Sergey Lazarev will return to represent Russia at this year’s contest.
We last saw Sergey represent Russia back in 2016 where he represented the nation with the song ‘You Are The Only One’ which placed third with 491 points. The song was composed by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Philipp Kirkorov, however it is yet to be officially revealed whether this will be the same team to compose his 2019 entry.
On his participation, Sergey states that he is honoured to represent the nation again, and that he is thankful for the trust that the Russian broadcaster have put into him.
