Julia Savicheva represents Russia at the 49th Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul. Vlad Yackovlev of OGAE Russia and ORTV reported that to esctoday.com moments ago.
Julia was born in Kurgan in a musicians' family and sung in the group Агата Кристи (Agatha Christy). She had several hits in Russia, such as the song I will survive. As Julia's official website is currently under construction, more information about her life and carreer can be found soon, probably.
A song for Julia has not yet been chosen.
Last year, the girl duo t.A.T.u. represented Russia with Ne ver�, ne boisia, which ended up third. This means that Russia is qualified for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest, on 15th May.
As the website eurosong.be reported earlier today, Julia is also the Russian representative at EuroBest and WorldBest, which is the follow-up of the European edition of the commercial song contest, in which several winners of national talent scout shows take part (not to be mixed up with World Idol).
