Earlier tonight our dear Kris Kostov uploaded his latest Q&A on his YouTube channel. He answered two of Messy‘s questions (Messy is a part of the KKD team). Congrats babe for the answers!
I just have to start off with how inspiring he is and he can bright up and give me some strength to go through the hard days. But I’m so weak for his comments about Team Kris, because you can notice how much he adore every single one of us. We should be so thankful to be a part of this family we created to him.
I don’t wanna say so much more about the Q&A more than that he mention a song title from the upcoming EP, exciting! I really can’t wait to get to hear the 4 songs. Kris better release the EP soon, we have waited too long for it, right? You can find the video below, be sure to check it out! It’s a lot of love included in it.
Earlier this week, Kris flew to his mother’s birth-country Kazakhstan to perform at “Voice of Astana” but he also visited the Kazakh tv-channel Qazaqstan morning show Tansholpan on June 14 where he sang the Kazakh patriotic song “Atameken” and made an interview. I have uploaded 300 LQ screencaps (but adorable) from the appearance on Tansholpan. I also thought it was about time to link the video. You can find the performance and the interview below. It’s something special when Kris sings “Atameken”. Be sure to watch it and check the screencaps out in the gallery link below.
In Russia, June 1th is Children’s Day. In celebration of this day, Musiconetv arranged a concert in Izhevsk.
Several Russian artists took part, among those where of course Kris! Kris sang his own song Glubina, and Burning Bridges, his collab with Jowst. Below you can see Kris perform Burning Bridges, enjoy!
First, we wanna say sorry for lack of updates this week but we have more important stuff we need to take care before KKD at the moment. It’s middle of exams, lots of work and focus on to get the health under control. But I searched around yesterday and found some content that could be perfect to use as a TBT this week. It’s the performance of John Lennon‘s “Imagine” from UNICEF‘s 25th Anniversary of the Adoption of UNCRC. Kris was one of the honored artists to sing at this Unicef charity event for the #IMAGINE project that took place in New York on November 20, 2014.
UNICEF invites young Russian singer Kristian Kostov to join Hugh Jackman, Katy Perry, Yoko Ono and David Guetta to sing John Lennon’s Imagine and help raise awareness of children’s rights.
Grand finale of a performance of ‘Imagine’, led by the 15 year old singer, Kristian Kostov, who is then joined by all artists on the main stage of the Hall where Yoko Ono sits at a white piano; all are accompanied by a 65 person children’s choir coming down the aisles from the back of the Hall to the stage
Russian singer Kristian Kostov is the only teenage pop star among a host of high profile supporters from all regions in the world to join the #IMAGINE concert, organized by renowned music producer and DJ David Guetta and artist Yoko Ono.

He even got to speak in front of the audience. 14 years old. He’s so grown up for this age especially in this video (please watch the whole video).
I uploaded a few photos in the gallery yesterday from the event that I think you should check out. You find the gallery links below the video.
I hope you like the TBT and once again we’re utterly sorry for the inactivity. We hope we’ll be better at updating soon!

For this week’s TBT, we’ve decided to go with an amazing performance by Kris from the Grand Gala show of the singing competition Мьюзик Паркинг 2016 – Music Park 2016 (Jazz Parking Festival) in Moscow in March 2016. He joined the grand gala show as a special guest artist. He sang a cover of Eric Benet‘s beautiful song The Last Time together with Jazz Parking Band (he has worked with them before when he became one of Jazz Parking‘s resident artists in 2011-2013).
We really like this performance so it was a very easy choice for this week’s TBT!
Also we wanna remind you about the exclusive video project we did for Kris for the one-year anniversary of Eurovision 2017 with some help from his friends Jowst (Joakim With Steen) and Cesár Sampson (backing vocalist for Kris in Eurovision and competed as main artist for Austria this year). They sent us video messages where they shared exclusive moments they remember from last year’s Eurovision. Please share the YouTube link to Kris because we think he still hasn’t seen the whole thing (Link to the video) and of course enjoy the video of Kris singing The Last Time below!
We have finally got up a new layout on the site. It was about time to change after using the old one since February. For the second time I (Sabina) designed and coded this design all by my own. I want this site to be completely by the KKD team. I wanted the design to get a more summer look and the photos by Misha took of Kris with cherry blossom and rose was perfect to use. I decided to name the design Rose Gold because of the photos.
We have more of these photos in the gallery in case you’re interested to see the full shoot, you can find a link to the gallery below.
I’m very proud how the design turned out. I don’t even wanna know how many hours I spent on this. The main goal was to make the featured photos to be more involved in the posts and to blend in, which I think I succeeded to get. The header is much simpler than the old one but recently I like simple more than advanced. We love the design and we hope you do too!
We would love to know what you think about the new look, leave a comment below what you think of the new design or tweet us.
If you experience any issues with the design please contact us asap. I guess if you find any issues it’s because I messed up the responsive coding. It’s a bit tricky to design responsive (to make the layout fit all devices such as computers, tablets and mobiles ect) sometimes!
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!
