Russia’s Eurovision Entry Will Really Pump Up Our Workouts
This year’s installment of Eurovision isn’t until May, and tongues in the UK are already wagging about the country’s entry possibly lip-syncing its way to Helsinki. (We’re more scandalized by someone in the UK actually wanting to be represented by a band called “Scooch.”) But thanks to Popjustice, we’ve become charmed by Russia’s entry, which combines the schoolgirl-Sappho undertones of t.A.T.u., the chorus from “Oops! I Did It Again,” the silly double-entendres of mid-period Warrant, and the synth-aided thump of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life”/”Have A Nice Day”-style anthems. And we haven’t even mentioned the dance sequence, which will either inspire mass choreography breaking out around Russia or a lawsuit from Justin Timberlake.
