Russia – The Russian entry will be revealed tonight at 21.30 (CET). Selected internally, the punk-rave pop group Little Big, will represent Russia in Rotterdam. The reveal will take place during the talk show “Evening Urgant”.
The band was founded in 2013 in Saint Petersburg and consists of Ilya Ilich Prusikin, Sergey Gokk Makarov, Sonya Tayurskaya, and Anton Boo Lissov.
“It was really unexpected for us,” Little Big frontman Ilya Pruskin said in an interview after Russian state television’s Channel One announced the band as Russia’s representative in the European sing-off.
“Of course we were happy when the news came. But then it got a little scary. It’s still a great responsibility to represent Russia,” Pruskin told the Komsomolskaya Pravda tabloid.
“We have huge expectations and we’re afraid of not meeting them,” Pruskin said. “I can say that the song will be fun.”
The song is ‘Uno‘:
