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.

Are you excited to hear Little Big’s Eurovision song? Do you think that Russia can win the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam? Let us know in the comments down below!

Which day was announcement deadline 8th or 9th of March? Why is Russia so special? Why the same rules don’t apply to everyone? ?
I wish in the future there’s a limited time frame during which all countries have to announce, like 1-2 weeks, so that some countries would stop scheming, playing, choosing their songs in accordance what has already been released. It is not fair to be last one and do all these strategies.

This is their first interview on the radio (finished a few minutes ago): https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=225&v=JxPX0u8YpCM&feature=emb_logo

The premiere of the song/clip is on First Channel (can be viewed online 1tv.ru) at 21:30 CET. This is the time when the show starts. It lasts 40 minutes and most likely the song will be premiered on the last minutes of the show.

Uhm, people, you all heard the snippet. News flash! The rest of this song will be pretty much the same. Uno! Dos! Tres! Quatro! Some Toy-Box style high pitched female vocals, stupid 4/4 bass drum, artifical horns section and that’s it. Pseudo-Latin jokey bop. It will somehow get to to the grand final and then it’s going to sink in the right half of the scoreboard. Here, I spoiled it for you.

yeah, I know what you mean. They will definitely grab a lot of televoting ponits, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they come last with jury votes in the final. It is hard to predict without having listened to the song though. TBH I find Switzerland and Lithuania VERY STRONG entries. If the former delivers brilliant live performance with an excellent staging, it is a clear winner for me. Yet, I think your 3rd scenario is also possible – no clear favorites and someone wins with a narrow margin (like Azerbaijan 2011). And that someone can be Switzerland, Lithuania, Iceland,… Read more »

I really don’t get the hype over Little Big or is it Big Little? Anyways, I find their “music” offensive and to a degree – as a prank call. Thus, I see no way this would go TOP10 if it weren’t Russia. Such is Eurovision – Belarus, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Moldova and a few other countries in East Europe + Germany will vote for Russia despite their awful entries from time to time.

I wouldn’t count Lithuania out in this regard. If Russia’s song is over the top or too crazy, the big points from ex-soviet countries may go to Lithuania, which is also crazy, but normal amount of crazy.

About this late release date… Well, I know that one of the members had a wedding on Sunday, the other is having clinical treatment, but I believe the real reason for this situation is that the song or the video needed some amendments in order to comply with regulations of EBU/Channel One (those who are familiar with LB’s repertoire will understand what I mean).

I think some people just need to tone it the hell down, the song will be released when it’s released, Russia always waits until the very end to release their song, there really isn’t any advantage or disadvantage when it comes to the contest itself, and a couple of days won’t do anyone any harm. I think Lithuania and Iceland should be very worried about this, if it’s good it will make those acts stand out less, and I’m expecting something very televoter friendly, I’m sure Russia know they have to have a product that gets a satirical message across… Read more »

1. The song was submitted to EBU on March 7
2. There’s a tradition: the songs chosen by Channel 1 are premiered by the broadcaster on a special show. The nearest date they can do it is March 12 (actually i believe it’s March 13 but anyway)
3. The band has 5 members and dozens of people working with them. They live in different locations and the confirmation about them representing Russia came as a surprise not only for us, but also for them 🙂
4. One of the members of the band had a wedding party on Sunday

I think there are some misconceptions. First, yes the deadline passed but that was for them to submit their entry, they don’t have make it public by that time. Second, there are a couple different reasons why they won’t reveal until Wednesday outside from just trying to hype it up. Because to be honest releasing last doesn’t always help an entry because people tend to warm up most to song that have been released or known for a while now. They could still be working on the music video. Also I think if there is much hype they probably are… Read more »
