Europe seriously loved Russia’s Polina Gagarina at Eurovision 2015. With her feel-good, we-are-the-world number “A Million Voices”, she won the first semi final and finished second in the grand final (and even led halfway through the voting). Since ESC we’ve seen her perform “A Million Voices” at the Muz Music Awards in Astana and again at the FIFA World Cup 2018 Allocation Draw in St. Petersburg. And both times she didn’t just reprise the song, but also her white dress. We seriously hope she owns a few of these, otherwise her dry cleaner is a saint.
Over the weekend we saw her once again, this time at the closing ceremony of the World Aquatics Championships in Kazan. Unlike in St. Petersburg, this performance was definitely live. She was joined by live accompaniament and at times did a bit of improvisation. The white-denim-clad backing vocalists and drummers look a bit more modern, and we totally approve. Are you feeling it?
