In May he’ll return to the Eurovision stage for a second shot at victory.
But before he gets to Tel Aviv, Sergey Lazarev has a tour to finish and this week The N-Tour tour arrived in Pforzheim Germany.
Ahead of the show, wiwibloggs had the opportunity to talk to him.
In the interview Sergey discusses a huge range of topics.
Among other things, the “You Are The Only One” hitmaker revealed there will be a Russian version of “Scream” and why he came back to the contest.
“I understood that probably I can do something else, do something different, show myself from a different side, sing a completely different type of music”.
Sergey Lazarev live on The N-Tour in Pforzheim
Sergey opened the show with a bang, singing his Eurovision entry from Stockholm 2016 “You Are The Only One”, dressed in an outfit seemingly borrowed from the Pope.
Each performance had its own story that Sergey told the audience with his voice and dancing skills. There was a costume change for each song. A standout costume from the night was a jacket that says “Love not war”, “Equality” and “Freedom”.
The most emotional part of the night came when Seregy sang a song for his son Nikita. This performance made the whole audience teary. The name of this worldwide tour is inspired by his child – The N (Nikita) Tour.
When he started singing his entry for this year’s Eurovision “Scream”, everyone in the audience was impressed with how he sang the song live without a single bum note! The song sounds even more magical on live performance.
Russia will perform during the second-half of the second semi-final on May 16. The running order has yet to be announced by Israeli broadcaster KAN, but will come in due course.
