On May 31, the final of the All-Russian contest “Miss Russian Radio” was held in the Moscow Bolshoi Manezh. This year the beauty contest turned 20 years old and the atmosphere of the anniversary event brought this bright show to a new level.
For the first time world-famous stars were represented on the competition jury: super model and actress Nadya Auerman, star representatives of the Russian show business — model designer Valentin Yudashkin and terrific Philip Kirkorov. And the most unexpected event, for me personally, was the invitation to join the international star jury of the competition!
The leaders of the Russian Radio Dmitry Olenin and Alla Dovlatova, as well as the singer Anna Sedokova, answered for the mood of the anniversary competition. Ex-First Lady of France, model, singer Carla Bruni, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Olga Golodets became honored guests of the show.
The charming finalists from the stage were supported by the stars of Russian Radio Vladimir Presnyakov, YurKiss, the Disco Crash group, VladiMir, Irina Dubtsova and Stas Piekha, Artik & Asti, Mitya Fomin, the Band’Eros group.
An unexpected gift for all the guests of the competition was the performance of the gorgeous Carla Bruni, who sang the hit of the legendary ABBA group “The Winner Takes It All”.
The winner of the anniversary contest “Miss Russian Radio 2018” was Elizaveta Savicheva from Yekaterinburg. She was awarded the winner’s crown, inlaid with precious stones from the Moscow Jewelry Factory. This prestigious award, as well as a certificate for one million rubles, I handed over along with Carla Bruni.
For the first time in history, Russia became the host country of the World Cup. This tournament united hundreds of thousands of fans around the world, and not only did regain faith in Russian football, but also rallied the people of the country.…
On the eve of the World Cup finals, the Bolshoi Theater hosted a gala concert dedicated to the completion of the Mundial. On the historical scene – a historical event: world celebrities – opera and football! I could not miss such a unique event. This evening turned out to be as bright as the championship itself. Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, Ildar Abdrazakov, Khibla Gerzmava, Yusif Eyvazov and other masters of opera art performed on the stage.
Among the guests of the concert there were many foreigners, the first persons of FIFA, the leaders of football associations and, of course, football legends.
The World Cup was filled with not only a sports program, but also cultural events. Concerts and various festivals were held at various venues of the cities participating in the World Cup. So, at the Moscow stadium “Spartak” or as it is now called “Otkritie Arena”, besides the Championship matches, the only concert in Russia of Guns N ’Roses was held.
I attended a concert that became part of the Not In This Lifetime world tour. In total, Guns N ’Roses planned to perform at 13 European stadiums and the modern Otkritie Arena complex was one of them.
For those who are not familiar with the work of the band Guns N ’Roses, I can say that their music is worthy of attention, only because of the album Appetite For Destruction has become the best-selling debut album in the United States in history. World circulation of which amounted to 30 million copies.
Now the group has 6 studio albums and it continues to remain one of the most influential groups in music history and amaze millions of fans around the world. Therefore, everyone who came to the Otkritie Arena on July 13 can say that they could see the only concert in Russia of the legendary group Guns N ’Roses and get extraordinary musical pleasure.
