Kyle of Malta covered the 2016 Eurovision entry from Russia YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE in English.
We have now reached the top 10 of our ultinamate top 50 millennium Eurovision songs and it is Russia 2016 in position 10 – YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE by Sergey Lazarev.
Seeing the name JOHN BALLARD as one of the composers of the song for DO RE DOS in Moldova 2018, the name looked very familiar and asked around and Andreas in Germany reported he was also involved in 4 other Euro entries recently – namely
2013 – AZERBAIJAN – HOLD ME
2014 – RUSSIA – SHINE
2016 – RUSSIA – YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE
2017 – GREECE – THIS IS LOVE
ESC Covers really hopes the song he is involved with in Moldova will be their entry.
Rian Swanepoel from South Africa covered the 2016 Eurovision entry from Russia YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE in English. It would have been nice if he did it in Afrikaans.
