Autumn is a great time for releases since the Euphoria of all the Summer Hits that surrounded our ears are just memories.
Since taking part in Eurovision is more or less a synonimous of success, at least in Russia and in Ukraine, we can find new songs from several artists from the former Soviet countries.
And if you are asking why we put russian and ukrainian artists in the same post, just check the charts of both countries and you will be surprised!

We've been waiting for a long time for the new album of Serebro. Сила трёх is finally out and climbed to the number 1 in the chart of iTunes Russia.
The new album consists of 16 tracks, including the previously released singles "Otpusty Menya", "Chocolate," "Pereputala" or "Kiss". "The power of three" - the first studio album from the russian group in 4 years.
Recall that recently Daria Shashin leave the band but the producer Maxim Fadeev decided to leave Daria's voice in the already recorded tracks. Kate Kischuk joined the band now .
Next July 21, SEREBRO will give a great summer concert in Moscow, where they will perform old hits and, of course, the singles from the new album "THE POWER OF THREE!"

Last year iTunes predicted that Mans was going to win!
Whats happening now in the iTunes chart all over europe? The positions of this year Eurovision songs are not very high, but being there can be a sign of the televoting tonight.
According to iTunes, Sergey Lazarev will be the winner because his song is in the chart of 18 countries, even if his positions are very low. Sergey is number 1 in Russia.
Dami Im stays in the chart of 16 countries with the best position at number 5, in Sweden.
Frans, is number 1 now in Estonia and his song can be heard in 12 countries. Just like Jamala that entered 12 charts, with a number 20 in Poland and peaking the first place in Ukraine.
Laura Tesoro is founded in 11 charts and it's the biggest surprise of this year contest. She's back to number 1 in Belgium now.
Amir is now in 9 countries and number 5 in France, the same as Douwe Bob.
And finally Zoe, that entered the chart of 7 countries.
If we find Barei in Spain or Agnete in Norway, it's not a surprise! But according to the 200 european chart of iTunes, the winner will be Russia, Australia, Sweden, Ukraine or France!
Just enjoy the show tonight and see you next year somewhere in Europe.

The moment to enter the stage - this year it was like "oh - small". Since 2011 the venue became each year smaller and actually the venue which in 2000 already hosted the contest and back in that times was a step forward making it bigger and more modern, now looks like a step back.
For sure the level of lights, stage and professional preparation of the swedish broadcaster is once again a step forward even the venues making steps back.
Today the press had the chance for the first time to attend the rehearsals in the Globe. It was also the first time that all participants of the first semi final went on stage in a row and running order of the tuesday evening.
Some smaller changes and adjustments were expected country by country. Here you find a quick overview and EOT rates "no, maybe, sure or suprise potential" after this second rehearsal.
Finland - MAYBE
nice song, with a good singer and maybe it is enough to go to the final
Greece - POTENTIAL SURPRISE
They surprised the press center and there could be a potential surprise coming from Greece. This year there is no real ethnic song. That could be the big chance for Greece.
Moldova - NO
It's fore sure a nice song, but the competition is to hard in this semi final. The astronaut won't help at the end.
Hungary - SURE
The song is ok, the singer is cool, the staging is nice. So Hungary will get once again the ticket to the final.
Croatia - SURE
The balkan countries sure will vote for her. Changing the dress is like old school, but the song is strong, the colours nice and so it should be possible to make it to the final very easy.
The Netherlands - MAYBE
The singer is amazing, the song is good as well. But some doubts, if it will work in this semi final and if the audience will understand the break without performance or music during 5 seconds during the song. Maybe it will be to strange.
Armenia - NO
The changing cameras, to many touch... even with an amazing singer, really good with cameras and staging, the song is probabely to mainstream.
San Marino - POTENTIAL SURPRISE
A lot of people laught about the song and the singer. BUT... maybe this high quality performer, with a quality song will be one of the surprises in Stockholm and bring San Marino the second time in history to the final.
Russia - SURE SURE SURE!
Russia never staid in the semi final and for sure it won't happen for the first time this year.
Even the staging being to much. During the press conference Sergey showed his tattows "wings", for sure he doesn't need them to fly directly to the final
Czech Republic - MAYBE
The small and still young eurovision country sends a nice song, the staging is nice but not sure, if it will be enough to convince the european audience and get enough points to do it to the final.
Cyprus- POTENTIAL SURPRISE
This band does really good, the song is good (Thomas Gyson once again), so maybe they do really good.
Austria - NO
Very hard BUT after the magic and colours we have seen in the national final now all seemes to be gone. Actually it looks like it will unfortunately be very hard for Austria to make it to the final...
Estonia - SURE
This year the james bond song and performance comes from Estonia. No big tricks about the staging, simple cards on the screens and a small card trick during the performance. Thats it and probabely enough for the final.
Azerbaijan - SURE
Once again this country knows how to do and to put on stage. It's a very golden performance with a golden rain at the end, that reminds the winning performance in 2011 in Düsseldorf.
Montenegro - NO
A second rock song in that semi final, with a dark and heavy performance. With Minus One in the same semi final and may be difficult for the guys of Montenegro.
Iceland - MAYBE
The performance is very close to the one in the national final with some additional visual effects and tricks. But if that will work in a semi final with Russia and a outstanding staging will be seen.
Bosnia & Herzegovina - SURE
The "must" balkan performance and balkan sounds, this time from Bosnia. The staging is interesting with some strange pieces but it could work at the end. Maybe because of the song, of the balkan sound of the staging.
Malta - MAYBE
Ira is back. She made the second place the last time and this time she is really trying hard to make it again to the final and have a good result. Staging and effects are cool. It should be enough to do it to the final, also the starting position should help.
