Award “Muz-TV-2019”: Lazarev did not make curved mirrors

If you go to the Megasport hall, where the award ceremony took place this time, drive up by unstrung stars in overdressed tinted glass limousines to the closed VIP parking, and try, like ordinary people, from the subway along dusty and crooked paths of the ever-building district, the first thing that was striking (especially in contrast with the recent Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv) was the harsh police and army cordon in the course of the movement. Step to the left, step to the right – shout with a roar, as if you are a fierce enemy. It was as if people were not relaxing for the song and dance festival, but were escorted to the slaughter in some Warsaw ghetto …

Here we are able to bestow with awe, fear, and a forced strain on every mound. I didn’t let go of the thought: and how it was in Tel Aviv with all their terrorists, hamas-gas sectors and all the “delights” shuffling along the perimeter, managed to provide security on Eurosong without deliberate kilometer cordons with machine gunners, dogs, special forces, gloomy cops, and around reigned exceptional atmosphere of celebration, relaxation and serene fun? And not just a tortured evening, but a week in a row! Riddle, however …

However, having reached the hall, people still got into a more ambient environment amid stern mobilization growth. Despite the fears and fears of the organizers, who were “evicted” after 17 years from the giant Olympic, who had gone for the demolition, managed to create an even more comfortable atmosphere in a smaller hall. The compact space immersed the viewers inside the fairy-tale action of high-tech augmented reality, where there were flying planes, and the triple Bilans, and the dancing skeletons of Loboda … One thousand and one nights.

Of course, everything was preceded by the traditional ritual of the front red carpet on the approaches to the hall. At the 35-degree heat soaked, I suppose, not only the spectators and reporters. Moreover, unlike the onlookers, who dressed everything lightly and blown through the weather, the celebrities arrived with a full parade, draped with designer and fancy frills, and while walking along the path, depicting radiant joy under the scorching sun, under their carnival bags, to believe that everything was prelum, sweated, slipped, sticky, itched … Brrr … In general, art required sacrifices.

Steeper all haipanula, of course, and as always, Olga Buzova. No wonder she was nominated for the “HYIP of the Year” nomination in February at her own ZD-AWARDS’2018 award (although she coquettishly hinted that she was ready, as it were, for Singer). Olya arrived with a caravan of camels. Last time I was on a horse, before the last one – I was crawling out of a huge shell with a priceless pearl. That is, not a chip for the chips, but with a deeper meaning. This time the performance meant the visualization of a famous aphorism: “The dogs bark, the caravan moves on”. She reported this to the host of the procession, Maxim Galkin, without going into, however, the roll call of the dogs. It would be fun …

Already in the star VIP parterre during the show, Olga lifted herself several times from the chair, sending “her people” in the hall of greeting by raising their hands as if Brezhnev at the CPSU congress broke the storm of applause, and all this symbolized who it was who is all the sweeter, more blush and whiter, but at the same time was not awarded not only a nomination, but even a solo number. The main “HYPANUT” star had to be content with participating in the national megamix with other trendsetters of the season – Rauf & Falik and Rasa. Each of the kulettiku, non-stop, one after another, without a pathetic presentation leading, that accompanied the other numbers.

On the one hand, it’s kind of like spitting into a “second after Putin” celebrity of the country (well, at least not first), but on the other – a clear confirmation of the words of Arman Davletyarov, general director of Muz-TV, in his interview to “MK” on the eve of the ceremony: what In addition to “general trends”, each award has its own “version”. In this case, the short-lists of nominees were formed at the first stage of voting by “academics” (unlike, say, from exclusively “people’s” ZD-AWARDS), that is, people though professional (producers, fellow artists, journalists, etc.). ), but pretty snobbish and often harmful. We can assume that they, of course, would rather hang themselves than vote for Buzov. The same caravan and dogs …

But whoever was licked from head to toe and smeared with chocolate was Philip Kirkorov: “Best song” (“The color of the mood is blue”), “The best duet” (“The color of the mood is black” with Yegor Creed) and “The best performer”. The record holder-triumphant flirted recklessly: they say, “two years ago, celebrating my 50th birthday, I was kind of escorted to retire” – recalled the pop king “difficult days” when he even refused to nominate himself anywhere.
