In the last issue, the Kid laid out so much that he began to suffocate in a stuffy suit. After recording the number, he was rushed to the corridor, where he was able to urgently remove his mask and come to his senses. However, enthusiasm and a beautiful song did not save the hero from getting first in the nomination, and then from leaving the show on NTV.
However, Alekhno remained virtually unrecognized. Only one Timur Batrutdinov confidently guessed Ruslana in Malysh. Others had versions – Vlad Sokolovsky, Dava and even Emin. Of course, the jury was shocked, Valeria admired the talent of a colleague, admitting that Ruslan opened up to her in a completely new way.
The singer himself was calm about leaving the project: “On the one hand – relief, and on the other… We have prepared interesting songs for the next programs, and I would, of course, like to present them. For example, the song “In the heart” by Sergei Lazarev. But now, apparently, he will have to sing it to himself. And what to be upset about, eight programs is a great result. “
Have there been any emergencies on the “Mask”? Your hero moved so boldly that everyone worried about him.
On the last broadcast in the dressing room, in my absence, someone accidentally hit the baby’s head, standing on the shelf, and she fell to the floor. The forehead was damaged. At first, I suggested that the creators of the show just bandage it and beat the story as if the Kid had just hit his forehead somewhere. But in the end they decided to just urgently seal the head before the vote.
Why did you choose this suit?
When I met with the producers, I was offered several options to choose from, among them, I remember, were Grasshopper, Corn. In the end, we stopped at the Kid. It seems to me that inside each of us is a child. And in what I did on the stage of the show, I am real, I am at home with my family. It was interesting for me to work on this image, to make the audience feel that there is a little boy on the stage. So where else would I call Kirkorov Uncle Philip? In general, I came up with the image that the jury is my kindergarten teacher. And in the end, not everyone figured me out, they walked around for a long time.
Did any of your friends and relatives recognize you?
Suspected, asked. At first I thought I was in the Dragon, in the Joker, the version of the Kid appeared later. Of course, I said that they were wrong, they said I would be happy to participate, but I’m writing an album, and on tour soon. It was not easy to hide from relatives. I constantly had to think about where I was going with a big bag: it had skinny clothes, shoes, a mask in which I walked along the corridors of Glavkino, and thermal underwear. I changed clothes already in the car. I wrote that I was going to the studio, to the gym. In general, I was inventing something, it seemed to work, but the family had a lot of questions.
don’t miss itMarie Kraimbreri on flirting with Batrutdinov: “I honestly told Timur that he was cool. We continued to communicate “
How did you decide to take part in such a complex show?
Last season, several programs in a row, the jury claimed that I was wearing a Rhino mask. My friends and I called: “We know you’re in the Mask.” Honestly, I already believed in it! And I thought then: “If I had been invited to the show, what mask I would have chosen, what compositions I would have performed, what I would have done so that the members of the jury, with whom I have known for many years, would not recognize me.” And as soon as I really received such an offer, I immediately replied: “Yes, I want to.”
