Song about Putin became an international hit

2009-05-13 13:00

"Anti-Putin" song by Stephane и 3G [Georgian group]was not allowed for Eurovision 2009, but is loved in Europe.


Now the group is travelling in the West with a tour and thanks the PM of Russia for advertisement.

The Guardian mentions that the song is a bit "cheesy", in particular the lines: "We Don't Wanna Put In - The negative move - It's killin' the groove".

But it is the first song not allowed for Eurovision for political reasons. According to John Kennedy O'Connor, the author of the original history of Eurovision, Georgia stood good chances for victory, and it frightened Moscow.

The song is being broadcasted by radio stations around the world, and won the second place in the top chart of UK's Music Week.

According to the previous messages, Georgia decided to hold alternative Eurovision. 22 artists from 15 countries are expected to participate. The show will be held in Tbilisi, from May 9 to 16 - the same period as the Eurovision song contest in Moscow. Entrance to the alternative contest is free.

The alternative Eurovision show is conducted in solidarity with Stephane и 3G, who were not allowed to participate in the contest.
