A group of Russian grannies have scored an unlikely trip to the Eurovision Song Contest, where they will represent their homeland with the feel-good folksy dance hit "Party For Everybody."
The Buranovskiye Babushki (Buranovo Grannies), who hail from Russia's Udmurt Republic, penned the song themselves, and say they intend to use their winnings to build a church in their tiny hometown of Buranovo.
"Grandmothers do not need glory and wealth," a "band" member was quoted as saying.
The 57th Eurovision Song Contest will be held on May 26th in Baku, Azerbaijan. To make it to the finals, the grannies must first survive the semi-final round which takes place on May 22nd.
