Eurostar Award is an interactive voting between the team of oikotimes and its readers. It started in 2007 and includes two phases. In the first phase we ask you to nominate anyone related to any Eurovision achievement (or any other achievement) the current year. The submitted proposals will be taken into serious consideration but they are not determining the final line up of oikotimes.com team. In the second phase we present you the final line up, the reasons why we select them and then it’s up to you only to vote and decide the winner.
The 6th edition of oikotimes.com’s Eurostar Award is over. For one month the visitors of oikotimes.com voted amongst the ten finalists of the poll based on certain criteria. Although for three weeks there was a close fight between Belarusian group Litesound and Greek star Helena Paparizou, the Kyriakin brothers along with Jacopo Massa finally won the choice of the readers.

oikotimes team would like to congratulate Litesound
WHY LITESOUND WERE NOMINATED
Litesound (Belarus): they tried many times to represent their country in the Eurovision Song Contest and they are very popular in their country we can assure you for that. During Eurofest 2012 it was common belief that the band will win by landslide but the Alyona (Alena Lanskaya) took the prize. Justice came few days later as the President of Belarus became aware of the scandal with the televoting and appointed Litesound as the true winners. They didn’t qualify the country in the final but they are still lovely. oh and they have a wonderful mother accompanying them.
