Eurovision is coming up and the countdown has started! Will our favorites perform well and win? No one knows yet, so all we can do it wait and see. The show starts on May 12th at 09:00pm CET. And now, since we have four more days until the great competition, we cannot do anything else but wire up with some great music for the weekend. This is where GRR HOT 15 comes to help!

Number one this week is Miro with “August is September.” Our Bulgarian favorite jumped over stars like Britney Spears and I hope that this confident jump of three positions will also affect Miro’s performance in Moscow. Speaking of Britney Spear, she is following him on second place. Her song “If U seek Amy” also made a big jump if three positions. I’m not sure if you know this, but Britney will be in London between 3rd and 14th of June for her “Circus” tour. A little tidbit, which might interest you, is Britney’s demands for the hotel, where she will be staying! I will try not to bore you with all of them but here are some of the interesting ones: humidifiers in all areas, a selection of the latest magazines, a fresh selection of flowers that she will then arrange herself, DVDs of her favorite Marilyn Monroe movies, books - ideally chick lit novels, lighting must be 100 watt bulbs - no low lighting, running routes for nearby Hyde Park, and horse-riding opportunities. I leave all comments up to you.

This week Armin van Buuren and Sharon den Adel fell from the first place and landed on number 3, which is not a bad place and it means that we will enjoy “In and Out of Love” for some time more. Sakis Rouvas is also falling down. This week he is on number 4 with his Eurovision song “This is our night,” but I hope his performance at the competition will be successful and he will climb up to his deserved first position!

On number 5 in GRR HOT 15 is Lady Gaga with her song “Love Game.” She fell down with three positions and it seems that her popularity in the charts is going down ever since she decided to take a break. After the success of her “Poker Face” song, the naughty lady Gaga finally admitted the obvious about the meaning of the song. While some of her naïve fans believed the song is about gambling, Gaga said: “The record is about how I used to fantasize about women when I was with my boyfriend.”

T.I. and Justin Timberlake are slowly but surely going up. Their song “Dead and Gone” climbed up with one position, in order to land on number six. Eminem is following them but he is definitely jumping up faster! With three positions up, on number 7 is “We made you.” The star is determined to make a great comeback and even the swine flu will not stop him! He was spotted arriving at Paris' Le Bourget Airport on Tuesday (May 5th) wearing gloves and a protective mask, because first case of the flu was confirmed in Paris this week. The rap star is in France to promote his new album.


The “hippies” Kokkina Halia and their song “Hartaetos” made it to number eight this week after climbing up with one position. Following them is the Bulgarian Cubanita who has been falling for the last couple of weeks. Milenita and her song “Niama” is on number 9 after a three positions drop. The song remained in GRR HOT 15 for ten weeks and I hope more people got to love Milenita’s style because she is definitely a good singer and I’m sure we will see more of her soon.


Even though we couldn’t see him leading the chart, Andonis Remos will remain one the best Greek singers, who conquer our hearts! “Eho Esena” is a great song, which after a 2 position drop, landed on number 10 this week.


On number 11 is “Dime Piece” by LiLana, Snoop Dog and Big Sha! The hit entered GRR HOT 15 last week and for seven days it managed to jump up with four positions! This is Snoop Dog’s first song with a Bulgarian and as it seems it will be a success! Actually, in Bulgaria it is already a success, so we have to wait and see how it will do in the US, where it will have its premiere in June.


Anna Vissi is in GRR HOT 15 for a third week with her song “Stin Pyra” and she is going up very unsurely. This week she went up with one position and it will be interesting to see whether she will manage to pass over the other Greek competition.


Filippos Pliatsikas keeps on entertaining us with his summer song “Balarines Epitreponte”! He jumped up with one position and as it seems he will continue going up, because all of us cannot wait for summer, the beach, the margarita, and that perfect summer rhythm. And because summer vacation is still not here, we can at least enjoy and be teased by “Balarines Epitreponte”!


This week, GRR HOT 15 offers you two new love songs. Razorlight gives us “Wire to Wire,” which takes number 14. The song is slow, touching and emotional – because you needed a little “calm down” after all the fast, jumping, summery songs above! But then again, since we don’t want to leave you melancholic, the other new song is “Together Forever” by Playmen featuring Reckless. Well, here is some news for you – this will be “summer ‘09” hit! So get ready to love, dance, have fun and burn under the sun!
