Eurovision fans won’t have to wait very long anymore before hearing the last song of this Eurovision 2020 season. Local media reports Russia’s Little Big will release their entry on 12 March.
Press agency TASS says that the song release will happen on Thursday evening. They received the information from Perviy Kanal, the Eurovision broadcaster in Russia, during a press event.
TASS is Russia’s largest news agency and one of the largest press agencies around the world. It counts Reuters, the Associated Press and Agence France-Presse as peers.
Little Big is expected to appear on Vecherniy Urgant. Hosted by Eurovision 2009 presenter Ivan Urgant, Vecherniy Urgant is the biggest late-night talkshow in the Russian-speaking world.
Why is there so much hype around Little Big’s song?
It is no wonder that Eurovision fans are very excited to hear the song. In the latest odds round up we published on wiwibloggs, Russia was in the top 5 with the betting agencies. And that is no surprise as the country is one of the biggest powerhouses of the contest.
In 2018 Little Big had viral success with their song “Skibidi”, which has scored more than 360 million views on YouTube. Their songs are there for a good laugh. The group’s signature sound is lively songs that use rave styles, punk, satire and humour. “Skibidi” was pure satire, as they are making fun of things. One thing is for certain, at Eurovision they will be remembered.
Currently, the group is one of the most loved acts in their home country. The act appeals to many audiences across Russia. Even politicians have expressed their excitement for the entry!
On top of that, Little Big are not just big in Russia, but have a following all over the world. Their songs have even been featured in the game Just Dance.
