Members of Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs choir performed a rendition of Daft Punk’s Grammy Award-winning song “Get Lucky” at the opening ceremony for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi on Friday.
According to reports, the singers were in their brown and gold uniforms, many of them sparkling with medals. The cops energetically performed to the song with some awkward choreography. They took the stage at the Fisht Olympic Stadium and were led by a pair of vocalists who channeled their inner Pharrell Williams.
The performance can be viewed at the NBC Olympics Site.
This was not the first time that a Russian police choir performed on the track. In November, the group posted a YouTube video that showcased them, in uniform, singing the hit song. The performance has been viewed by 4,105,579 users.

“Get Lucky” is a track from French electronic music duo Daft Punk’s latest album, “Random Access Memories.” In late January, the group performed it at the Grammy Awards with Williams, Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder. Daft Punk won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and the Record of the Year at the Grammy Awards. The album won the Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album.
