Well done Russia :)

We are loving the Russian grannies they are like those little Russian dolls that pop out of each other :)

By far the favourite with the audience and public, plus with the added extra of this headline “Dima Bilan beaten by dancing grannies”

 

Buranovskie Babushki will sing the song Party for everybody in the first semifinal

According to the Telegraph Showbiz Editor “Can’t reveal until tonight. But if I tell you it’s a Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling artist… you still won’t guess it.” – Rick Astley anyone? Tom Jones, or some random down on their luck artist trying to make a comeback?
