In the evening of September 14, the popular TV show & # 39; Golos & # 39; relaunched on & # 39; First Channel & # 39 ;. His current season is unique because people older than 60 years participate in the vocal competition.
The composition of the jury remained largely the same as in previous seasons: spectators and participants will still be shown on the screens Pelageya, Leonid Agutin and Valery Meladze. But there is also a surprise effect: for the first time in the role of the mentor of the program, he decided to try himself "the nightingale of the Russian phase", Lev Leshchenko.
The first test, waiting for the participants "Voices, 60+" – blind auditions. It was during them that there was almost a quarrel between the judges, especially during the conversation with one of the participants.
"The apple of disagreement" was Volgogradka Natalia Butusova. She went on stage with the song Simply the Best, which was previously performed by Tina Turner and Bonnie Tyler.
Scarcely had Natalia sung, Leschenko, Meladze and Agutin began to smile. It was clear that the artists liked the inflammatory performance of a woman. However, the red button was ultimately only pressed by Pelagia.
Nonetheless, when the speech was over, other members of the jury did not pay any attention to the praising words addressed to Butusova. "This is a hurricane, yes!" – Agutin recognized. To this Natalia reacted with a playful indignation: "Why did not you turn around? She did not come in. – Lenya, there is no excuse for you!" – the singer added.
This "exchange of courtesies" touched Pelagia. & # 39; So, a second, & # 39; she said with an insult to her voice. "Will I turn my head away?" However, after a few seconds the singer found the power to laugh and translate the momentary emotional wave into a joke.
