The Russian Police Choir performed the Daft Punk hit last night (February 7)
Russian police performed Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ as part of the Winter Olympics 2014 Opening Ceremony in Sochi last night (February 7), reports Rolling Stone.
The all-male Russian Police Choir performed their rendition of the hit song whilst dressed in their military uniforms, with two soloists singing the majority of the Grammy Award-winning track. It’s not the first time the choir has sung the song though. In November 2013, a video of them practising the track went viral after it was shared online. You can watch the rehearsal video at the bottom of the page, while the Winter Olympics performance can be viewed here.
Meanwhile, other performers at the Opening Ceremony in Sochi included Russian duo tATu, who released their gold-certified single ‘All The Things She Said’ in 2002. Last night, Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina performed a version of their 2003 single ‘Not Gonna Get Us’, sung in their native language.
The 2014 Winter Olympics begins today (February 8) and runs until February 23.
