Last Sunday he wowed audiences with a stunning performance at the Russian Eurovision Pre-Party in Moscow and a few days later he was back on stage acting inside the Pushkin Theater.
But even Russia’s Sergey Lazarev — who jokingly described himself as Robo-Cop during our recent interview — is human.
Earlier this evening the Eurovision favourite collapsed during a live concert in St. Petersburg, leaving fans in shock as they filmed him from the audience.

Part of his tour “The Best Show”, Sergey cut a fit figure as he belted out hit after hit, wearing spray-on black jeans and matching work boots.
Everything seemed to be going fine as he stood centre stage in front of a large microphone with wings — until he suddenly and unexpectedly lost consciousness in the middle of the performance.
Assuming Sergey was just performing, fans can be heard clapping as if nothing is wrong — until support staff and dancers rush to the stage.
The dancers carried him away and Sergey received first aid, with the doctor administering NH4OH (a kind of ammonia), according to LifeNews.ru.
At the time of writing the concert had called a 15-minute intermission. Sergey has reportedly gained consciousness and we are awaiting further news.
We wish him a speedy recovery!
