Last Monday, Little Big were revealed as Russia’s representatives for Eurovision 2020. And over the past week and a half, fans have been left impatiently waiting for the band to reveal their competing song. Now, that wait has finally come to and end. Little Big have premiered their Eurovision entry “UNO”.

The reveal was made on late-night Russian talk show Vecherniy Urgant (Evening Urgant).

Little Big – “UNO”

The Russian band are known for their lively songs that use rave styles, punk, satire and humour. Their Eurovision entry certainly fits in well with that description.

The song is fun, upbeat and has an infectious hook. It will certainly stand out on the Eurovision stage and Little Big will no doubt be hoping to get the entirety of Europe dancing along with them in May.

With the reveal of Little Big’s Eurovision 2020 entry, we now know all 41 competing songs for the contest.

Little Big will perform “UNO” in the first half of the first semi-final of Eurovision 2020 on 12th May.

Who are Little Big?

Little Big are a pop-punk rave band from Saint Petersburg. The group is currently formed of members Ilya PrusikinSonya TayurskayaAnton Lissov and Sergey Makarov.

The group started off back in 2013 and their first song was “Everyday I’m Drinking“. Little Big have toured across much of Russia and Europe, and collected numerous nominations and awards. For example, they won the award for the most trashy music video twice at the Berlin Music Video Awards with “Big Dick” and “LollyBomb“.

In 2018, they caught viral success with their song “Skibidi”, which has scored more than 360 million views on YouTube. Their songs are there for a good laugh. It is a satire, they are making fun of things. One thing’s for certain, at Eurovision they will be remembered.

What do you make of Little Big’s song for Eurovision 2020? Do you think Russia have a strong chance of climbing the scoreboard, or even winning? Let us know in the comments below!

The voices are too edited, and the song is too ridiculous to take seriously. After Sergei Lazarev’s awesome song, this is a bad parody of what they’ve done. The only thing I do rescue is the Spanish pronunciation. Still, Russia, WTF?!

There’s already a couple of live performances on YouTube, you can check what their unedited live vocals sound like. Sonya (female lead) is known for her ability to sing in a high-pitched voice like a “Barbie-girl”, so there isn’t much effects applied. Lazarev’s song was hugely despised then in Russia however this year almost everyone seems to be happy with the artist and song choice. I can’t see anything wrong with a country sending its best option instead of something conventional and predictable. But you’re right. It’s a parody on how seriously Russians used to take Eurovision in previous years.… Read more »

Ok so the song is wacky and fun, very Verka Serdryushka, quite catchy and with stupid lyrics, just perfect for Eurovision. I do like the song. However how is nobody talking about the gay culture appropriation in the video? I really don’t know what to think, I don’t know what the band’s intentions were or their stances but what I see in the video is a guy clearly vogueing and death dropping without any nod to being gay, while representing famously anti-gay homophobic Russia. Are they being ironic and pro-gay by smuggling gay culture into representation of Russia? Or is… Read more »

A lot of young people in Russia (millions of them) will watch the Eurovision this year for the first time. The competition has lost its popularity recently, because… Well it is not the best experience when you watch how you representative is booed not because of the bad performance, but just because (s)he is your representative. That is painful.

You’re being pretty insulting to a band. Little Big have created something, gave it their all, their artistry. You can like it or not like it, but don’t be so disrespectful. I abhor Russia as a country, but I don’t have to hate all Russians and anything any Russian creates. That’s prejudice.

I had some time to think about it and hear all three entries once again, but I think I am one step closer in raking the ”guilty pleasure” category among Russia, Azerbaijan and San Marino. My current opinion is that Russia is amazingly over-the-top that I just *have* to enjoy it. It’s not something I usually listen to, but it’s kinda like if Gunther had a duo with Verka. It’s just gloriously nonsensical in a way not seen in ages. Azerbaijan has a *really* catchy hook paired with almost exquisitely bad lyrics. It’s also becoming my official guilty pleasure.

This makes me think that if one rule should be changed this would in priority be the 6 people rule on stage. With stages getting bigger year after year and now allowing to hide backing vocalist this makes no sense having such big stages to see only one singer. Look at Armenia last year, it looked so empty. Bring 8 to 9 people max on stage should be a new option to consider.

BREAKING NEWS: A mere 16 hours following the release of Little Big’s ‘Uno’ music video, the video has amassed over 4.2 million views on the official Eurovision YouTube channel. In doing so, it becomes the first video from the ESC 2020 class to enter the all-time top 200 Eurovision videos list on the channel. With it’s entry into the top 200, we see the exit of Hatari’s live semi-final performance from the top 200 list. It’s going to be interesting watching this videos trajectory, and I will be certainly following it’s progress daily. Will it eventually surpass Netta’s ‘Toy’ to… Read more »

But Lithuania is coming up a close second Having just reached 4 million. I don’t deny that little big is hugely popular, but there’s one little problem. I don’t know what percentage of cyrillic Comments are Russian or other languages that use the cyrillic alphabet like Ukrainian, Belarusian, or Bulgarian, But if they are all Russian, They can’t vote for themselves! They have to vote for other countries, and I don’t know how much of an international appeal little big will have at Eurovision.

It’s not about genres, it’s about tunes, the entertaining ones, the three songs give audience very positive vibes, but in the end only one or two will be remembered and voted
It’s my opinion,
Russia will probably receive the points that would go to Lithuania or Iceland.
Btw my personal favourite of this bunch is Lithuania

This isn’t a bad entry, but I’m 100% sure that this song cannot win Eurovision. I even expect that in the finals, the song will be on the bottom five of the juries, as major support will come in Lithuanian and Azerbaijani entries (as of former USSR bloc). Sorry Russia, you spilled a good chance to win the competition…

Like, there is a connection there missing. It can be their style. I get it. But I can’t connect to them that much. That said, it’s very fun and catchy. It will grab a lot of televotes.

So I have had time to think about it, and this is going to end up more towards the top than the bottom of my list. The reasons: 1. It is undeniably catchy – Eurovision is a three- minute impact competition – can your song create an emotion in a short space of time – this one definitely answers yes 2. It is fun – there is a very lively and welcoming tone to this song – it isn’t overtly being mean, it’s just saying here I am, come and join the fun. 3. It’s well done for what it… Read more »

This is not the kind of entry I’m upset about. We knew we weren’t getting anything super serious. I would have liked their entry to be a little more daring, this just seems like it’s making fun of the stereotypical camp image of Eurovision, and God knows we’ve had enough of that. I would have liked them to be a little more provocative, put the EBU in some kind of quagmire by entering something in the vein of “Hateful Love” or “Lollybomb”. By going this way, they could have made an impact also with the musically more serious crowd, as… Read more »
