Buránovskiye Bábushki-Party for Everybody

"Party for Everybody" was the Russian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 sung by Buranovskiye Babushki (The Grannies from Buranovo). The song won Russia's national song selection, which took place on March 7, 2012, in Moscow.

At the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 held in Baku, Azerbaijan, the song finished in second place with 259 points.

Most of the lyrics are in the Udmurt language. During an interview with group the correspondent of "Komsomolskaya Pravda", group member Olga Tuktareva said that the group wrote the song themselves, whereas the English parts were written by an unnamed British person. (The English lyricist was actually the famous American songwriter, Mary Susan Applegate, best known for composing Jennifer Rush's "The Power of Love". She said : "I will not even say the name of the author, I can't pronounce it, she's not Russian". The music for "Party for Everybody" is written by the famous composer Victor Drobysh. Notably, the Udmurt and English words were written separately. When the Buranovskie Babushki came to the studio with their written text, the English part, too, was ready. A member of the ensemble stated what some parts of the song mean in English: "We sing about lighting the oven, kneading dough, and spreading out a tablecloth while waiting for the children to come home. And we say when our children come home, we will have fun and dance.".

The members of the group also stated that learning the English words wasn't too difficult.
