Military Review

The Russian army conquered Europe with a voice


The video, in which the choir of the Russian army performs the live song of singer Adele Skyfall, scored more than half a million views on YouTube. The unexpected talent of the Russian soldiers was appreciated in Europe, causing a storm of enthusiastic comments from Internet users.

The “impressive and surrealistic” performance, as described by the British newspaper Daily Mail, was shown on a St. Petersburg television channel, reports InoTV.

On the "children's face of the soloist" one can see a sincere love for music. However, it is noticeable that he does not know the words by heart, as he often peeps them, notes the Daily Mail. He is sung by six choristers of “harsh appearance”.

At some point it may seem that not all performers know the words, but still they sing with a confident tenor for four minutes, writes the British edition.

The video has gained a lot of rave reviews from around the world. So, one Russian commentator wrote: “Class! :) Such an inspired soloist! Where Adele to him :) ". Another user left such a comment: “Are they Russian? Cool! :-) Cool, when the military do what they are not expected to do :-D. ”

The military choir chose an Oscar-winning song from a James Bond movie, despite the fact that in the bondian the Russians often get their full share of the agent 007. Perhaps they liked the last film more, because in it Bond fights not against Russians, but against cyber-terrorist Raul Silva, the newspaper writes.

The choir of the Russian army, which is now called the Alexandrov ensemble, usually performs Russian classics, for example, “Kalinka,” rather than modern songs, the Daily Mail reports.

      Yes, only the name remains of the famous Alexandrov's ensemble ... I have something to compare with: why shouldn't our TV-figures show Europe the old recordings of the Alexandrov's ensemble (70s)? His performance of the USSR anthem was considered a reference (when it was performed in Canada during the first hockey super-series, all the stunned spectators gave a long standing ovation!). And when "Get Up, Great Country" was performed, even the dead had goosebumps!

      And it seems to me that the song "Skyfall" is very symbolic, they say you will have a sky foul if you attack Syria.

      And on the other hand, it’s necessary to conquer all these islands, so that our culture is better, science is stronger and sport is higher, songs are wiser and life is better, and people are kinder and happier ...

      - it’s a pity that instead of investing money in science and the development of society, it is necessary to spend money on the army, because without it in our time we can’t live.

    ... Europe was conquered in the 45th, in the 13th (1813) and so on ... And far from a voice.

    P.S. The fact that of course well done sing)))

    Certainly performed nothing, but still a song performed by a woman, for a film about a British agent, all the same the Song and Dance Ensemble named after him. Alexandrova, not the 2nd Scottish, but this is my purely personal. And in Europe, if they were in rainbow parades, they generally became idols and looked at us differently .... But why not see and hear ...

    My personal opinion is that the army should hold weapons, and not be jesters and clowns. sing with Baskov and Moses for example ... or amuse Europe. I am ashamed of the uniform and shoulder straps that so many real soldiers poured blood on their own and others.

      I also noticed that the guys didn’t have the same shoulders .... the soloist with the bearded cap didn’t have a “body” ...
      well done guys .... but here it’s better to conquer Europe all the same than something more substantial

        It was first shown on the "Fifth", Petersburg TV. It seems to me that these performers have nothing to do with the choir of the Russian Army. They were simply dressed in uniform. The soloist's cap is several sizes larger, it can be seen. If he pulls out the newspapers crammed there , it will simply hang on the ears. The second from the left, on the visor of his cap, has a pattern of leaves. None of the "generals." "Fifth," in my opinion, just mocked, but not quite successfully.

      As I understand it, the modern Alexandrov Ensemble is already mummers, or rather, it is just a musical Ensemble that has nothing to do with the army. If not, correct. They sing beautifully, the soloist has a really good voice. In the USSR, in the army, they danced and sang, there was "leisure"))) It is necessary to return, so that the pole-field could sing at the top of their voice at the parade. It would be stronger than our bleak parades with a modest, monotonous orchestra and commentator. The parade is boring now

        Hello. I find it difficult to answer. For me, this is a fake. I looked for pictures depicting the Alexandrov Ensemble (in quality, large image size), they have a pattern of leaves on the visors of their caps, but they all have. And the shape sits alright. they can be splendidly, soundly said. And on these, the form is like a mockery.

        Absolutely! Of these, they are the same military as those of the modern CSKA “army men”. Ask any of these "singers", dressed in military uniforms, what kind of VUS he has and see his reaction. So, only village grandmothers and snotty teenagers believe that these boys are really military.

    The voices are good, tilko songs are not ours and not about us. Turning the military into buffoons to please Westerners is not worth it - they are always happy about the worship of worship. Come on, they sing Russian songs in the West, only we won’t hear them, they don’t like us alive. The same can be said about all Film Festivals with golden idols, where our artists love to go to bow and Eurovision Song Contests, where our and other singers sing exclusively in their hostile language - there is no joy at all.

    I look - opinions are divided.
    Let's summarize: performed qualitatively, albeit poppy. Choosing a song is crap.
    So it's more likely no than yes. It's too clownery turned out. The guys can sing, but they chose the wrong moment. It’s another question, if they did it according to "civilian life": the military would not be offended, and the Western man in the street would be happy.

    I like the song itself. At the very player Adele albums. But in such a performance ... At first it was fun, then - just anger. Well, that's not what our army should collect votes on YouTube! Not this one! At least the choice of song is a huge JACK!
