Thunder and lightning, it’s getting exciting! Earlier this month, Sergey Lazarev jetted out to Greece. While there, he celebrated his birthday and kickstarted the “naked back challenge”. However, Russia’s Eurovision 2019 singer wasn’t in the nip for the entire visit.
He also took part in the annual MadWalk 2019, a high-fashion TV extravaganza. He walked the red carpet and, of course, he couldn’t leave without showing off his entry for Tel Aviv — “Scream”. And the performance is now available for your viewing pleasure!
Sergey Lazarev “Scream” MadWalk 2019
Just before Sergey came out on stage there was an enigmatic showing from the Wolves Gymnastic Team, which then blended into Russia’s anthemic Eurovision track. Some members of the team stayed on stage to perform choreography for the number.
The dancers, mostly dressed as wolves, told a story of pack mentality. Together with Sergey, they lured a dancer in white to their side. Sergey’s acting skills were tested in this scenario, but he was well up for it — not surprising since he graduated from Moscow’s MKhAT Theatre School as a professional actor. The piece looked powerful and engaging. We can’t wait to see what he brings to Tel Aviv.
Eurovision blasts from the past
The starry crowd included a plethora of past Greek and Cypriot Eurovision stars. We spied Ivi Adamou (Cyrus 2012), Kalomira (Greece 2008), Eleni Foureira (Cyprus 2018), Sakis Rouvas (Greece 2004 and 2009) and Demy (Greece 2017). The “This Is Love” songstress wore, honestly, one of the most gloriously extra outfits we’ve ever seen.
We loved Sergey’s performance, and can’t wait to see his epic show in Tel Aviv. What are you hoping to see from the Russian delegation this year? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to check us out on YouTube and Twitter.
