The Russian Police Choir's been around. We have, in fact, seen them sing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" before on the internet. This video went up a few months ago:
Well, the same guys did that performance again for the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Sochi, and I really think you ought to see it. I can't embed the video here because there are rules, but here is a link to go watch it on NBC's turf. Go ahead, take a look. I'll be here waiting when you get back.
Okay, so what did you think? Though the performance was dwarfed by the size of the stadium, it was certainly a grander affair than the one above. And I thought it was great. Some parts of it were the best of their kind. The booming group sections, the Bee Gees-like high notes in the chorus, and some visual pleasures, too. For instance:

(Side note: Please recognize that the lead singers here are not wearing hats because THEY KNEW FULL WELL THEIR GYRATING WOULD CAUSE THEIR HATS TO FALL OFF.)
