Please, Please, Please Let the Babas Win Eurovision 2012

Russia’s entry in Eurovision 2012 is the Buranovskiye Babushki, a group of women aged from 43 to 86.  With the finals coming up on Saturday, they have an excellent shot at winning when they reprise their song, “Party for Everybody” which they sing in both English and their native Udmurt.  Yes, that’s a real language.

Watch as they chill out in a town on the Caspian Sea.
