Lounge of Sheremetyevo airport this night turned into a fan zone. Dozens of fans of Sergey Lazarev gathered here to greet their favorite singer, returning from Stockholm. Flags, chants, t-shirts with a portrait of Lazarev. While some unfolded brought from home posters, others were painted on the cheeks of the Russian tricolor and remembered how you were rooting for the singer.
At the airport Lazarev smiled, joked and looked like he wasn't nervous waiting for the results of "Eurovision". He said that his speech is still considered a victory. Lazarev said: "I am Pleased that the audience of Europe, the television audience of Eurovision gave Russia 1 place, it is a great happiness."
This year the results of the voting in the Eurovision song contest announced on the new system. If the earlier votes of the national jury and viewers were summed in the ratio 50: 50 and then immediately declared the overall figures for each country, now the jury and the audience vote independently from each other. And 1 place Sergey Lazarev, in the opinion of the audience, after the intervention of the jury members was the 3rd.
The leading Western media come up with headlines, they say, the jury on "the Eurovision" made a political decision. With fans and journalists Sergey Lazarev talked for 20 minutes. Once again thanked everyone for their support. Specially for participation in "Eurovision", the singer took a break from the road. Now concerts will continue.
