Russian Police Choir performs cover of Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' during Opening Ceremony

By Kyle Johnson,

The Russian Police Choir performed a cover of Daft Punk's hit song "Get Lucky" during the Sochi Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony on Friday.

For the most part, the all-male choir took the song much more low-key than the original version, reports Rolling Stone.

The performance primarily focuses on two singers switching off during the song, while the rest of the choir stands sort of awkwardly, alternating between serious-looking members of the choir and others more into the tune.
They also offer some background vocals for the song and they get more into the song as it progresses.

Eventually a third singer joins in using a vocoder to electronically tinge his singing, which is appropriate given the song.

According to New York Daily News, the choir is officially known as the Ministry of Internal Affairs Choir. They sing the song while dressed up in their uniforms, adding to the somewhat awkward dancing seen throughout.

It also isn't the first time they have performed the song.
