Rumors – At this early point of the Eurovision season, rumors are floating around like tourists in the Mediterranean at summer time: There are too many, some are pretty others not so much. Apart from the good old “Dima Bilan is returning” rumor, Russia has yet another rumor up its sleeve: X-Factor winner Sergey Savin is said to be in the running to represent the biggest competing country in Baku. His coach being diva Alla Pugatcheva, who represented Russia in Eurovision 1997, has fed the rumor mill. You can see two of his performances here and here!
The rumor in Greece is that Kostas Martakis who already tried to win the Greek ticket with his song Always and forever , plans to return to the Greek selection. Oikotimes reports, however, that ERT and Universal music have reached a deal that Universal pays for half of the Greek Eurovision participation, which would mean only Universal artists would be allowed to compete. Lot’s of chaos in Greece again and nothing factual yet.
Italy hasn’t even confirmed that it will participate in Baku again, but local star Marco Mengoni is allegedly entering San Remo this year and as he wants to expand his career would be happy about the extra exposure through Eurovision. Another rumor says Raphael Gualazzi will return to San Remo and may be chosen again.
I guess we have to do what we always do… wait and see (while heavily rumoring) and then be completely surprised that none of the rumors were true.
