Yesterday our team reviewed all eleven of the entries fighting for Russia’s ticket to Junior Eurovision 2019 in Gliwice, Poland.

We asked #YOU to tell us your favourite, and unlike Belarus, where #YOU and our editorial team both went for Mariya Yermakova, #YOU overwhelmingly went a different direction with Russia. Our editorial team had a slight preference overall for Ksenia Kushner’s “Girls don’t cry,” with Melanie Otto saying that Kushner had the potential to win with what is a catchy fun party song aimed at kids. Editor-in-chief Sean Tarbuck agreed, adding that on top of being fun it is the most quintessentially Russian song on display.

#YOUon the other hand, were overwhelmingly in favour of Mikhail Noginskiy’s “Superhero,” which was our editorial team’s 2nd place. “Superhero” won with 42% of the vote, with Tatyana Mezhentseva and Oorzhak Denberel’s “A Time for Us” in second with 25%, and Kushner in 3rd place with 18%.

Will Noginskiy or Kushner prevail in the national selection being held in Moscow tonight? While we wait for the results, you can give Noginskiy a listen here:

Do #YOU think Mikhail Noginskiy should represent Russia at Junior Eurovision 2019? Let us know in the comments below, in our forum, or on social media.
