Russia’s Sergey Lazarev at the #wiwijam
Sergey is one of the biggest pop stars in Russia and the bookies’ favourite to win it all at Eurovision 2016. He rose to fame as one-half of the male duo Smash!! — with the exclamation points — before pursuing a solo career in 2006. And boy did he pursue it! In 2008 he placed fourth at Russia’s Eurovision selection, and followed that up with a series of hot English-language tracks including “Already Know”, “Out of Control” and “Take It Off”. A former artistic gymnast, he backs up his voice and style with a bangin’ body. He put that body on fine display during his 2016 tour, which snaked through more than 55 cities. He’s a real contender with a heart of gold. He is Sergey Lazarev!
Sergey Lazarev at Israel Calling, Tel Aviv – interview
Sergey has slayed every live performance from Moscow to Tel Aviv, bringing on-point vocals and fierce choreography.
We love his music, but we also love how down-to-earth he is.
In Moscow he made wiwiblogger Dayana feel like a princess, and in Tel Aviv he charmed wiwiblogger William with his humour and laid-back attitude.
He also talked about the wing tattoos he has on his biceps, a motif he also uses on his microphone stand. Sergey wouldn’t explain the exact meaning of the tattoo, but said, “I’m a flyer. It’s my soul.”
In recent days the 33-year-old Russian star has said that he will deliver a Eurovision performance that requires “physical endurance”.
Thankfully he has the stamina to perform at the Hard Rock Cafe on May 11.
Sergey is the latest act to confirm for the #WiwiJam, joining the likes of Krista Siegfrids, Barei, Nina Kraljic and Amir. More names coming soon…
