Grannies groove into Eurovision
A group of grooving grannies have won the competition to represent Russia at the Eurovision Song Contest this year. They beat 24 other acts with a song in Udmurt, a minority language spoken by just 325,000 people. They wear traditional Russian outfits and headscarves on stage.
The group Buranovo Babushki come from a small village, 1,000 kms east of Moscow where they are rehearsing their competition song, which they wrote themselves.
Their artistic director, Olga Tuktaryova, said: "We didn’t know what music to use, we just thought about our own lives and realised this would be easier to convey to people. So we sing about our children coming home, about waiting for them, waiting for guests. We light the stove, we make cakes and we dance together.”
The Eurovision Song Contest will be held on 26 May.

I think that Grannies groove is an exelent candidacy for Eurovision. At very the beginnig of Eurovision I supposed that they would in the triple of leaders. When they appeared in the scene they illuminated all of their audiency with their smiles. The audience was surprised for their creativity. I proud of them, that they performed for Russia.

Oh..... I don't know what to say actually. On the one hand this team seems to me fresh, cordial, homely and rather touching. These women certainly have the right to set the pattern for other people of the same age. But we're speaking about the Eurovision! That's not the right format, I think. After all it's not the contest of national music! Well, of course these are ordinary doubts and we'll hope for the better)
