After 24-hour shootings Sakis Rouvas’s video of “This is our night” is finally ready! Sakis Rouvas, his partners, Fokas Evangelinos and Dimitris Kondopoulos, as well as the complete team of the director- the Ukrainian Katya Tzarick, had made full efforts in order to visualize the Greek participation in Eurovision. The video is a mixture of amazing views from Athens and beautiful landscapes full of color and positive spirits, in combination with terrific choreographies.

The settings for the video were the historical sights of the city- the Olympic stadium Kalimarmaro, the pedestrian zone beneath the Acropolis, the antique amphitheatre Irodio, but also the super-luxurious suit of hotel “King George.”

The young Ukrainian Katya Tzarick’s camera caught amazing shots, which are going to accompany the song of the Greek contestant. For Eurovision, Katya Tzarick said that her enthusiasm was triggered by the skills and professionalism of Sakis Rouvas. The making of the video ended in a famous club with the audience actively participating.

Here you can see materials from the making of the video: (

The finishing touches on the video will last for a couple of days, and soon it will be available for viewers from all around Europe to enjoy it at Eurovision’s official website.

The young Katya Tzarik has wide experience in directing video clips, which are shown by big music channels. She is the creator of Annie Lorak’s clip (the participant in 2008’s Eurovision). In the production, together with the Greek National TV (ERT), her advertising agency “karamella” participates as well. The agency has experience in shooting clips, which are used for introducing Greece abroad.

In Greece the preliminary competition went fine but Bulgaria didn’t have the same luck. A huge scandal came up regarding the participation of Krasimir Avramov in Moscow. The choice of the song “Illusion” provoked a wave of protests among the music guild and as a result the Bulgarian National TV (BNT) can give up its participation on Eurovision.

Avramov’s song got 19553 votes on Saturday night but BNT decided to recount the votes because many music experts defined his performance as fake. Due to the unstable performance of Avramov, the fans of Poli Genova (one of the favorites in the competition) demonstrated in front of the BNT building.

If no Bulgarian song is presented in Moscow, BNT will be fined and Bulgaria’s next participation might be cancelled.
