In celebration of May 13th being the 1 year anniversary of the ESC Grand Final 2017, we wanted to do something a bit extraordinary for Kris and TeamKris!
We had an idea, but we needed some help! We asked a few of the ESC 2017 artists if they would be interested in sharing a short memory about Kris from last year’s Eurovision season, and we are so grateful that Cesár and Jowst wanted to take part in our project! Cesár even recorded his greeting from the Altice Arena in Portugal on the evening of the ESC Grand Final 2018, before going on stage himself. How incredible is that..! Other artists wanted to as well, but sadly did not have the time at the present moment, as we unfortunately were a bit late in contacting them.
Watching this video ourselves, we both laughed and cried, because the memories shared are both funny and so moving, and speaks volumes about what kind of person Kris is! He is truly the best idol ever, with such a loving, caring heart!
So here it is, exclusively for the Kris Kostov Daily! Thank you so much, Jowst and Cesár, for joining our project, we truly appreciate it!
Please credit KKD and give a link to this website if you share our video!
The KKD Team behind this project is Sabina, Nanna, Messy and Lina
Our gallery is constantly being updated, with both old and new photos. So far we have over 4500 photos in our gallery, and more will come!
One of our recent additions are photos Luce Folle took of Kris in the summer of 2017, when he was performing at Musiconetv’s concert Maekva Live (маёвка лайв) on May 20th, and when he was taking part in the Bloggers of Russia event on June 12th (Блогерыроссии), both in Moscow.
Please credit both the photographer and the Kris Kostov Daily Website if you use any of the photos!

We have finally added English subtitles to the video of Kris from the Eurovision 2018 Special edition of the Russian talk show “Let them talk” on Channel One Russia. See the video below. This was the send off party in honour of Julia Samoylova, the Russian representative for the Eurovision 2018. Several Russian artists were present, among others Filip Kirkorov, Artsvik, Ragda Khanieva, Noris and Doredos.
We hope to get subtitles soon on the video of Kris‘ second apperance on this show, on the night of Eurovision, 12.5.18. Stay tuned for that!
Eleni Benardi helped us to translate and add subtitles.Thanks for the help, Eleni!
We will also remind you to take a look at the beautiful pictures from this show in our gallery. Please credit us if you use these pictures.
Since the Eurovision week is over we are finally back with some other news not only of Eurovision. We’re starting off with Kris’ new video on his youtube channel that he uploaded earlier today. The video is a cover and music video of “Serendipity” originally by the South Korean boy band BTS (방탄소년단).
I still can’t get over how aesthetic this boi is. I guess he was born that way but it’s starting to annoy me a bit haha because he makes everything so artistic and professional. Also, I think he’s starting to find his Kazakh/Chinese/Korean origins in himself, he slowly starting look more like his big brother Daniel whose I think has very clear looks from their mother’s Kazakh/Chinese/Korean origins.
Daniel is also the music producer of this cover and Kris’ friend Misha is the director and editor of the video. When these three working together it always ends up into something unique and creative.
Enjoy Kris’ the cover and if you haven’t subscribed to him yet…what are you waiting for? Subscribe to his channel and Misha’s channel!
Last and not least, I added a bunch of screencaps that you can find on the link below the video.
We have reached day 6 of this Eurovision week and sadly this is the last “regular” post for the theme week (read below for more information). For today’s post we decided to post the arrive home video that Eurovision posted of the artists from 2017 arrive home again after the busy weeks in Kyiv.
I love all the support the artists seems to get when they arrive back to their countries. It’s so nice to see how the country comes together to welcome the artists home!
Since this is the last “real” Eurovision week post we wanna say thank you for all visits and support we have gotten this week. But it’s not over yet because we still have something extraordinary to post that we hope can go up tomorrow or on Monday but stay tuned! You don’t wanna miss it!
Enjoy the video! Have a good night everyone.
(FEATURED IMAGE WILL BE ADDED LATER)
We have reached day 5 of this week dedicated to Eurovision Song Contest 2017, and what else to share today than Kris‘ semifinal performance from May 11th 2017, a year ago to the date!
Personally, the semifinal was the first time I (Messy) saw and heard Kris perform, as I hadn’t really paid any attention to the ESC preseason. At first, he looked so tiny on that huge stage, but then he opened his mouth and I could not believe that this incredibly deep, rich voice could come from such a young boy. And the emotions..! I was completely mesmerized, why had I never heard of him before? Why wasn’t he already a world star?
So much has happened for Kris in the year that has passed since then. He himself has admitted he wasn’t prepared for all the attention he would recieve, but that he is so grateful for the possibilities his participation has brought him, regarding building his own career. We couldn’t be more proud of him!
As mentioned earlier, visit our gallery to find photos and screencaps of Kris from Appearances & Events > 2017 > Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
Enjoy his performance in the video below, and please visit us again tomorrow for another post of this special week!
