Yes, our favourite Russian grannies from Buranavo, the Buranovskiye Babushki are back on the scene! The 2012 Russian Eurovision representatives are all set to welcome 2013 in a special new year’s show on RTR 1. The Russian national broadcaster has prepared an extravagant star studded show for bringing in the new year.
The Buranovskiye Babushki made headlines early this year when they won the 2012 Russian Eurovision national final and got the golden ticket to represent Russia at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku. They received much mediatic exposure and attention both at home and overseas, prior to the Eurovision Song Contest. They achieved an honourable 2nd placing in Baku with their Eurovision entry Party for Everbody.
Many former Russian Eurovision stars will be performing at this special New Years show; Dima Bilan ( Russia 2006, 2008), Yulia Savicheva ( Russia 2004), Alsou ( Russia 2000), Ani Lorak (Ukraine 2008) and, Philip Kirkorov (Russia 1995). Celebrated Russian artists such as Valeria and Group A Studio will also grace the stage.
Dmitry Guberniev, Nikolai Baskov,Maria Sittel, and Olga Shelest will be hosting this special new year’s show which will be aired at midnight ( local time) on RTR 1 and RTR Planeta (via satellite).
