Himself the king of pop knew about the upcoming gala evening for a long time. And worry about the upcoming show started already.

That this year will be a gala concert in my honor, I found out at the closing of “New wave in 2016.” Since then, I kept thinking about how everything goes. We have long since begun to prepare for this show. And I’ll spend the evening.My main hits colleagues immediately snapped up. And it so happened that I have left (laughs). But I will sing new songs. So I will mark the beginning of a new five-year plan in his career— said Kirkorov.

Of course, not to go on stage, New Wave Hall this evening could not friend and colleague Kirkorov, Sergey Lazarev, who choose from the repertoire of the king of pop song “Heart in a 1,000 candles”.

Now at this stage is talented, young and very popular actor, with whom I have a special relationship. With him we had a very bright work on the Eurovision song contest in 2016. The song You Are The Only One song I have written for him in collaboration with Kontopoulos. But I don’t think this song is about, but talking about the song “Heart in a 1,000 candles”, which gave me a collaboration with a beautiful girl and a talented author Irina Dubtsova.Ira wrote me one of my favorite songs. It’s true. And I want to note that none of the songs from tonight’s concert, I didn’t impose on anyone — chose themselves what they wanted to perform from my repertoire. So I’m doubly pleased that this young, successful, beautiful artist chose this song. Please welcome on stage — Sergey Lazarev!— presented Kirkorov Lazarev.

And while some artists performed solo, and Kirkorov was watching from the side, in the case of Vera Brezhneva he picked up the microphone to keep her company and add fire to an already hot room.

Was the year 2000. I went on tour in Los Angeles, continued the experiments with my image. Being then on Rodeo drive, I saw a trendy lounge. There is something to do with brad pitt and Tom cruise. I could not resist and went. And so I returned to Moscow from a tour, had to make a new video. Go to Gusev and say, “Come on.” Gusev says: “I love you so, will not shoot”. Me: “what?”. He said: “This song, the Greeks wrote… How de so crazy? I’m such a bastard to remove, I will not” (on the panels behind Kirkova flashed his picture of the times when he had short bleached hair).I was very soft, were easily influenced. Follow the advice of the “smart” advisers. I do not regret it — done what done. So, that is distinct from Gusev I liked it. I turned to Sergei Kalvarskaya, Alla Duhova ballet which made me a gorgeous choreography, and we made a crazy temperamental clip. And it just so happened that this song in Russia, apparently, can do only blondes and blondes, because now this will be one of the most, no, the striking blonde of our platform. My friend is an incredible Vera Brezhneva with the song “Fire and water”.

However, even the most popular artists, speaking today at the gala concert and colorful outfits (and there were about 12) Kirkorov remained this evening in the shade, and all because of the performances of the two young artists — children of the host of the show. Alla-Victoria and Martin Kirkorov performed to the audience the father’s song “my Bunny”.

My biggest musical hit I can only trust the main hits of my entire life — my favorite and most expensive children. Alla Victoria Kirkorov and Martin Kirkorov!

— introduced the daughter and son of the singer.
