High school students at a talent show in Surgut recently staged their own version of Sergei Lazarevʼs Eurovision performance. The students translated the song, «Your Are the Only One,» from English into Russian, and improvised their own, decidedly more budget-friendly, special effects.
Discerning viewers will realize instantly that the students' version and the original performance are virtually identical. Well done, boys and girls!
Here, incidentally, is Lazarevʼs show from Eurovision:
It all started when the school learned that the [local] director of the Education Department and the head of City Hall planned to visit the school and attend the talent show. In order to impress these distinguished guests, the school concocted a parody routine about Sergei Lazarevʼs Eurovision performance.
