Wrap-up: Peter Nalitch conquered European hearts

Who is he?

Peter Nalitch has become famous after he published a music video on YouTube which he made himself for the song Guitar. In about a month after he did it, 70,000 persons had already watched it. The Russian users of LiveJournal were sending each other the link to the song and the number of views was increasing by thousand every day. That brought him into fame all over Russia.

After his first very popular concert, Peter gathered a grouped of musicians with whom he gave two more concerts in the winter of 2008 and took the name MKPN.

In the following summer they went to support the Russian sport teams at the UEFA European Cup and the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing. That was followed by releasing an album and also the DVD of their Moscow concerts, making them established artists.

What the fans thought?

"My favourite song but it does not apply to Eurovision Song Contest stereotypes of the last 10 years, perhaps that is why I liked it so much." said Nikolaos Karyotis from the Netherlands.

"I like this style, and I am sure that many across Europe will like it also. It's a genuine song sung in a totally honest way - no pretension, glamour or anything like that." commented a fan from Australia.

He finished eleventh in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with 90 points and finished seventh in the first Semi-Final, held four nights before.
