Back in 2014 Russia’s Tolmachevy Sisters asked the world to “shine into my darkness, shine into the night my rising sun.” And now they are shining once more in this hilar CARaoke video — essentially the Russian version of Carpool Karaoke. Gone is British comedian James Corden, replaced instead by two entertaining friends Alexander and Dimansh (who, by the way, runs the amazing Moscow Gala Concert and Eurovision Pre-Party).
They start their journey by admiring the good spring weather and recalling the atmosphere of May 2014. They then get in the ESC mood by singing their winning entry from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006, “Spring Jazz”. Dimansh compliments the girls on their dramatic transformation from 2006. He confesses that the first thing he said when he saw their photos for Eurovision 2014 was: “Look, they have breasts!”

Of course, Maria and Anastasia sing their 2014 song “Shine in the CARaoke”. But the most exciting part of this may be watching them cover the winning 2014 entry, “Rise Like a Phoenix”. They channel all the dramatic feels — and even Conchita’s exceptional ‘eyebrow rise’.
In addition to those winning songs, they also rewind the clock to 1974 by donning ABBA wigs and singing along to “Waterloo”.
Finally, the girls discuss their new project — the opening of the “Tolmachevy Sisters’ creative studio”. They want to share their experiences with children aged from 6 to 12. In addition to vocal lessons, kids can enrol in courses covering acting, the English language and choreography.
During the car ride they call Filipp Kirkorov — Russian representative at Eurovision 1995 and the mentor of the Tolmachevy Sisters at Eurovison 2014. He fully supports the girls’ idea about the opening of their studio, so all y’all need to sign up your kids RIGHT NOW.
The sisters also invite everyone to the Eurovision Gala Concert Moscow on 3rd April. See you there?
