Shine was the Russian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen performed by the Tolmachevy Twins. It was co-composed by Philipp Kirkorov, who had previously represented Russia at the contest in 1995.

For the live performance in Copenhagen, they appeared standing back-to-back on a large see-saw structure with their hair tied together, pulling apart near the first chorus. Near the end of the song, the backing singer pulled two giant fans together to form a sun-like shape as the backdrop lighting simulated the sun's rays.

It successfully qualified from the first semifinal in 6th place. In the final, it was performed 15th following France and preceding Italy. At the close of voting, it finished in seventh place with 89 points.

The country was also subjected to booing from the audience, both in the semi final when they successfully qualified for the final and again in the final whenever they were awarded high points, especially by neighbouring countries such as Armenia and Belarus.

Lyrics

Been looking at the sky
Wishing on a star
Waiting for a brand new start

Living on the edge
Closer to the crime
Cross the line a step at a time

Now maybe there's a place
Maybe there's a time
Maybe there's a day you'll be mine

Now something's got to give
Make a brighter day
All we got to say

Shine into my darkness
Shine into the night, my rising sun
Drive away the madness
Can you be a masterpiece of love?
Sending out a message out above
Telling all the world to show some love
No one's gone bring me down, bring me down
You're my rising sun

Keep looking up ahead
Riding like a wind
Open up your heart, let me in

My life is on a string
When I see you smile
Our love will last a thousand miles

Now maybe there's a place
Maybe there's a time
Maybe there's a day you'll be mine

Now something's got to give
Make a brighter day
All we got to say

Shine into my darkness
Shine into the night, my rising sun
Drive away the madness
Can you be a masterpiece of love?
Sending out a message out above
Telling all the world to show some love
No one's gone bring me down, bring me down
You're my rising sun

Sending out a message out above
Telling all the world to show some love
No one's gone bring me down, bring me down
You're my rising sun
