On Saturday, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin and his girlfriend Nastya Shubskaya attended a wedding at the Hilton in Moscow. It was to celebrate the vows of make-up artist and co-owner of the Prive7 beauty salon, Irina Mitroshkina, and her beau Roman.
Ovechkin had a good time.
Things started off tamely. First, Shubskaya posted this Instagram of the two together before they arrived and the pair served up a double dose of Russian smiles.

Initially during the reception, Ovechkin’s attention was elsewhere. He and a friend started watching a UEFA soccer match between Russia and Sweden on their phones.
But then once the match was over, the Russian machine went to the dance floor, and that’s where the magic happened.
First there were selfies.

Then Ovechkin grabbed the mic and started lip-syncing/dancing to Accident’s What Did You Mean? The song is about a hapless guy who got married and then is poisoned by his wife. Ovi got really into it.

Here’s the chorus, which Ovechkin is rapping:
I couldn’t even remember your face
But we went to buy a pair of rings
The organ was playing, everybody was drinking wine
Your mother for some reason kept calling me “son”
I understood, it’s a hint, I catch everything on the fly
But what did you really have in mind?
And the YouTube of the song.
Ovechkin wasn’t done there. “Doll,” a song by the Russian boy band Ivanushki International was played. A super-excited Ovi can be seen singing the line, “We simply have grown up.”

Half of the the song is apparently the group telling the dolls of a girl who is now too grown up to play with them not to cry.
And that’s how Ovi spent his weekend in Russia.
