Polina Gagarina brought Russia its highest score ever at the Eurovision Song Contest with her powerful ballad “A Million Voices”. That’s one reason she is nominated for four Vision Music Awards. Well now Polina is spreading her message of love not only around Europe, but also deeper into Russia with the Russian-language verison of the song. The words have changed, Polina says, but the language is still the same: the language of love.

https://youtu.be/PyAFlMcQmcQ

The re-cast lyrics go like this: People again and again are seeking love on the planet. There are millions of us! Far away from coasts they believe that they’ll find love. There are millions of us! 

The refrain “sing it out!” has become “not alone!”.

What do you Russian speakers think of the song? And what about you non-Russian speakers? Let us know in the comments below!

I always look forward to native-language versions, but I’m just not feeling this. Maybe it’s because I can’t understand but I just think the English version sounds more powerful. (I thought the Greek version of “One Last Breath” was amazing though!)

@ Well Steven.. He is seriously obsessed with me & i do not know what to do… I just dunno.. He should better get lost.. He doesn’t see his own messed up ego persona but he bothers minding about mine..! 😛 He ruins all the fun on the place.. I want to be like whatever but he destroys the nice cool atmosphere here.. Its really pity because i do not deserve to get hated like that by him but he sees me like his worst enemy…It is always him that starts either trolling againist me or insulting and i only… Read more »

@Mario, I think given his strange posts in this article about chicken,he really does need help. I really wanted to know what he actually wants from this site and I was asking him a genuine question that didn’t even mention you…but then he brought it back to you again. I honestly don’t understand why does he come to a site that posts articles about sexy Eurovision stars (e.g the Swedish article), promotes Eurovision’s Next Top model for both male and female and is run by moderators many of which are gay. There are loads of Eurovision sites where you can… Read more »

@ Oh Steven.. He just lost his own battle…He can’t hide at all after all his trollish s**t that all of us have seen here.. I blame only him for all the anti Mario negative situation that has been caused against me here.. All because of this wacko stalker troll.. I am what i am…And i cross the line how many times…I have accepted all my flaws & at least i try to work it out myself as much i can.. But its really hard 4 me to not go out of the line when i witness his awful disturning… Read more »

this is a gay friendly website, and thats why i was trying to talk to you and genuinely ask why you come here if you disagrees with the values this site is based on. I wasnt talking about Mario when I asked that, as you have stated you hate all gay people I honestly dont understand why you would want to be on this website at all (Mario or no Mario).

@Oh Great. Nope how about i dont stop . Yes I was originally defending Mario but that is not the reason I have continued with you. It is because you are the one trying to ruin this site with masses of weird bizarre and rude comments. You criticized all gay people and also kept criticziIng the editors of the sites in tons of articles for no apparent reason You are the spammer as you are going into as many articles as possible and writing things that have nothing to do with the article at all. I get that some people… Read more »

We get it that you hate me! But its you that expose yourself when you are obsessed with me trolling the place just to get under my skin!
Others users dislike me as well but i do not see anyone of them trolling against me with all these trollish accounts & trashy offensive comments..!

Whatever i write to you will go wasted & its really worthless to deal with a mentally wacko troll like you..!

At least i do not troll against any other users here as you do with me harrashing me all the time and with such horrible way!

@Steven: How about you stop being a justice warrior for ounce. Is Mario sucking/Jacking you off as we speak. I hate Mario’s lame as* character and so do other people. Stop defending him. We had another spammer called Nicky. I hated his guts too just like everyone else yet Mario is on the same level but suddenly the Gay loving weboos on this site think his a mascot. Well Done, WIWI and well done users like Steven you’ve destroyed a site by letting that bit*CH as* mario continue posting.

@Jak
I totally agree 🙂 The interactivity is one of the reasons I come to this site as many of the other sites are very stiff and boring. It baffles me why people want to make this site the same and obsess over the amount of comments people post.

@Mitchel I do understand why many people wouldn’t want to go to Russia if Polina had won… But its the Eurovision SONG Contest… In my opinion (which I understand isn’t everyones), Polina had the best song/performance. It’s kind of sad that many people used her as the poster child of Russia to which booing and abuse went her way (that was not fair. Two wrongs do not make a right). The point of the contest is to bring about unity, not provide a political battleground. I’m gay and I don’t see what Russia being anti-gay has to do with anything,… Read more »

@Steven, I love Mario by the way! He’s an iconic person in the history of Wiwibloggs. HE’S THE UNIQUEST EUROVISION SYMBOL EVER. And this site owe a lot to him, he’s also the reason why I’m checking all the articles frequently. Mario is the greatest thing produced by Wiwibloggs. <3 They should name some awards or so after him, "Mario's Vision of Gay Love Awards" might be cool. If they produce some Mario stuff, like t-shirts or bracelets, I may be the first person bought them all. He should start his own blog or YouTube channel, something like that! MARIO… Read more »

@Oh Great. You are avoiding ny question. Why?
And if you feel that way why are you here given that many of the people includung some of the editors of the site are gay. Why come here at all and spend your days whining about how you hate everything here?

To be fair most Eurovision websitea have articles with zero comments at all so i would rather have lots of comments even by the same person then nothing at all..if Mario was fictional it wouldnt have been a bad idea from wiwibloggs at all.

@Oh Great, please tell us what happened when you said you would call the police as (in your words) “all gays are pedos”. Are you avoiding the question for a reason.? After all, when asked – you go silent and move on to a different article as if you are trying to pretend you didn’t say it. Why is that? Honestly curious because you said you were going to do it and I assume you are not a lying troll so I would like to know what the police said. ?

I think this song is better in English: although, that being said, there have been entries that sound better in Russian (their entry from 2014 has become one of my favourites because of the Russian language version of it). I think Polina sold it in English live, but would she have sold it with the Russian language version as much as the English language version? To me, it’s not a question of which is more accessible, but which language gets to performer to perform the song better. Honestly, she’s a great singer but I just didn’t feel the Russian version… Read more »

Ok one more comment…My last one here.. ((How many more users are gonna post comments here anyway..? Kinda hypocritical that they blame me for posting too mnay comments when they hardly post any comment…Most of the wiwi readers eurofans post either never-rarely or not frequently enough…I can only remember less than 15 users that are really frequent members and thats really unfortunate 4 the site..))

Really pity that Polina was voted by all except 2 countries.. Her perforance was WOW! <3 Lithuania's & San Marino's juries put her on purpose(of course) on 20th & 18th place respectively so 4 Polina to end up receiving non points at all by them two.. It was because of Russia's homophobic policy obviously…But it was not the fault of Polina though of course.. Really unfortunate 4 her because even very gay friendly countries like Sweden,Norway,Denmark,Iceland,Netherland & Germany that the Germans awarded her even the 12 douze points ALL voted Polina's song with points.. 4 me it was not necessarily… Read more »

I didn’t expect Polina to do really THIS GreAtY before the live shows/rehearsals.. 303 points – 2nd place ALMOST Winner! You would think that this amount of points not only would be enough 4 the victory but for a big margin & landsized winning..! Il Volo also gathered really big amount of points with their 3rd place! These 303 & 292 points were record breaking 4 both the 2nd -3rd placed songs in our Vision! So it really doesn’t matter how many points you will gather but only if you WIN.. It would be prefered to receive a record low… Read more »

By the way… Polina’s sexy ”naked” photo shoot on Maxim men magazine back in 2012 was not really naked one.. She did not even reveal her bo*bs on the photos…When mainly ALL the female stars are doing that now.. It was just a sexy photoshoot & not a p*rn explicit one! You are seeing photos like that pretty much all the time that are not only in men’s s*x magazines.. And 4 the record Polina back then in 2012 that she did this was famous only in Russia and not the same famous that she is now in whole Europe..… Read more »

No way miss Polina Gay+Gay.Rinova would manage to do equally GreAtY with the russian version of *Million Voices* though.. She has to feel really great that at least she managed to beat the big Winner Mans with a margin of +7 points.. 🙂 The juries were the *Heroes* that saved Mans from the defeat not only by Italy but Russia as well in our Vision 🙂 I have dear Polina nominated in all the categories in my own visionary oscars.. <3 🙂 ~ Best Act -nominee ~ Best Female Act -nominee ~ Most Beautiful Female Act -nominee ~ Best Live… Read more »
