But with the beginning of spring not only birds start singing but also the participants for the Russian national selection, announced on the 1st of March by the Russian broadcaster, RTR, are training their voices to give their best on the day of the national final, the 7th of March.
Here is the running order of the 25 finalists who passed through their internal semi-final yesterday: 1. Group 'Princessa Avenue' 2. Jay Stever 3. Ana 4. Miusha 5. Duet 'Para-bellum' 6.

The outcome of the national final will be decided by a combination of televoting, SMS voting, web voting, and a professional jury. TV viewers can start casting their votes after the first entry has been performed, and the voting window will close 10 minutes after the last song has been performed.
The winner will represent Russia at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest. The singer who will come second in the national final will be called as his replacement.
