Junior 2008: Dima Bilan to perform!

Not only will he be the special guest star, but he will also meet all this year’s participants of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest to offer them some last-minute advice after Friday night's dress rehearsal. During the live final on the Saturday night, Dima will also perform his winning song Believe on the stage of the Spyros Kyrianou Arena.

Since launching his first single back in 2003, Dima Bilan has emerged as one of Russia’s most popular and widely-acclaimed talents. Dima is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest. He represented Russia in Athens in May 2006 and came second with the hit single Never Let You Go. At the annual MTV Russia Music Awards 2007, Dima Bilan won three of the most prestigious awards: Best Performer, Best Song and, for the third time in three years, Best Artist. At the 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards in Munich Dima also won the RMA award for Best Artist.
