Eurovision is in less than 80 days! In last half of decade, Russia has been one of the best ranked countries at Eurovision. Russia delivered us such a magnificent and unique performances, from warmhearted and precious Buranovskiye Babushkas to high tech and humble Sergey Lazarev. Apparently for this year's edition of Eurovision we still don't know who will represent Russia. Several articles have mentioned Nyusha, Alexandr Panaiotov or Elena Temnikova. Seems like they again root for winning contest. Who would you like to see as Russian representative at Kyiv stage?
Бурановские - как буран!)) Никогда не фотографируюсь со звёздами, но раз уж мы на сцене почти коллегами стали - почему нет) правда, я с фотоаппаратом крутилась, а ну и ладно. С такими и боль в ногах забывается! Эхххх! Buranovskiye babushki are really cool babushki! I never take photo with media people, but yesterday after dancing with my camera on the one stage I couldn't resist making photo with them! #ideasfromhat#followme#photography#buranovskiyebabushki
Ladies and gentlemen, your stars of the 2018 FIFA World Cup: Messi, Ronaldo…and Babushki.
Yes, the Buranovskiye Babushki — Russia’s #Eurovision 2012 act — are back and they have that football fever. Ahead of Russia’s hosting of the #WorldCup in two years time, the #Babuhski are already getting into the spirit.
This could be the music video of the year. What can top a group of Russian grandmothers playing football in front of a half-empty stadium?
The video was filmed in the Metallurg Stadium, home of Russian team Krylia Sovetov. We’re going to assume it’s their fans who keep on randomly appearing in different background shots of the video. Continuity, eat your heart out.
In all seriousness, though, it’s nothing you wouldn’t expect from the Babushki. It’s a dated, slightly folks-y party number, which is what makes it so endearing, and the “Olé, Ola” hook is a real earworm. Plus the group look like they’re having fun. #buranovskiyebabushki
