We’re all trying to find ways to stay entertained and busy, and Little Big is no exception. The group has been finding ways to stay in touch with their followers during quarantine, as they will not be performing at Eurovision this year.

Anton Lissov, one of the band’s singers, recently released an interesting list. While many people are remembering their favorites during quarantine, Lissov instead treated followers to a list of his top five most disliked books, which included the famous Pushkin poem “Ruslan and Ludmila,” a Chekhov story, and Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe. Lissov added that he loves to read in general, it was just that these few works didn’t quite suit his tastes.

Another of the group’s singers, Sophia Tayurskaya, recently released photos of herself at a younger age, and weighing considerably more than she does now. Tayurskaya said that she always knew she wanted to be a singer, and didn’t pay attention to those who cast doubt on her dreams due to her appearance.  

Some members of the band are staying creative during the quarantine. Florida Chanturia, a singer from the group Leningrad who joined Little Big for Eurovision, released a song with Leningrad frontman Sergey Shnurov on his Instagram page. The song is dedicated to the May holidays, which have been postponed due to the pandemic.

While band members stay entertained, Little Big’s music is becoming more and more popular. The group performed a live online concert in early April, which had more than 3.5 million viewers. Recently, the music video for their song “Skibidibecame the most popular Russian video on YouTube, with over 400 million views and 3.4 million likes. And fans can mark their calendars for catching the group live during the Europe Shine A Light concert on May 16, which is replacing this year’s Eurovision competition.
