RUSSIA – The annual RU TV Music Awards took place last night in Moscow. Thanks to our correspondent in the Russian capital, Dasha, e got a good glimpse of the red carpet and the stage performances.
We saw the following Eurostars in the red carpet: Sergey Lazarev, Philip Kirkorov, Ani Lorak, Svetlana Loboda, Polina Gagarina, Dima Bilan, Alekseev.
We also got snippets from the ceremonials were Philip and Serge reined their awards. Russians might not be happy that their Golden Boy missed another Eurovision trophy but surely his artistic talent is widely appreciated in the country.
We also saw Ani Lorak, Svetlana Loboda and Polina Gagarina performing on stage.
It was interesting to see no award and no performance from Dima Bilal who recently stated that he would like to go back to Eurovision despite having already won for Russia in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest.
No need to wonder whether Sergey will return in Eurovision? It is completely out of the question according to the local media but never say never. After all powerful Philip is somehow deciding everything along the national broadcaster.
There are ruers that Russian Voice talent show will be used for the 2020 national selection procedure but there was no confirmation. We know Russia is not revealing plans that early anyway.
The awards were: Sergey Lazarev for Best Video Clio, Philip Kirkorov for Best Song, Svetlana Loboda Best Cinema and Music and Singer of The Year, Polina Gagarina for Best Concert Show.
