The opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia will take place this Friday, February 7. There is no confirmation yet on who will be performing but there are a few rumours spreading around. It’s tough to say if anything willl top the Spice Girls reunion at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
Remember t.A.T.u? The pop duo once had a hit back in 2002 with “All The Things She Said”. You probably remember the video, seeing how it’s one of the most provocative videos of the new millennium.
It’s been reported that the faux-lesbian act have been invited to play the ceremony but neither members could confirm on Twitter. Besides, they haven’t really had a big single in twelve years, so would anyone still care?
There are other reports that ”big stars” such as viola player Yuri Bashmet and Russian pianist Denis Matsuev will appear. If you have no idea who these people are, don’t worry about it, maybe your parents do.
The act that we’d love to see perform the Opening Ceremony is Kreed. He’s basically the Justin Bieber of Russia right now. He’s topping the charts ever since he signed a contract with Russian rap legend Timati after graduating high school. Check out his music video below.
Right now, according to several charts, Lana Del Rey is the number one artist in Russia. Perhaps the bombshell will surprise us all by coming out and doing a romantic, orchestral version of her hit song Young and Beautiful from The Great Gatsby soundtrack.
Or even better, maybe a surprise duet with Nyusha? At just 27, Nyusha is considered one of the most successful singers in the country. This collaboration would definitely get a gold medal from us. Check our Nyusha’s latest music video below.
While the Olympic Committee continue to be tight-lipped about the opening ceremony just three days away, we’re pretty sure all this suspense will be worth it.
