Басков1It was not Nastya’s first experience of turning into a man during “ShowMustGoOn”. This time she was Nikolay Baskov, the idol for millions of women all over the country.
A special place in the rehearsals belonged to Vyacheslav Manucharov who is very familiar to Baskov. With his help Nastya could recreate the singer’s peculiarities and copy his behavior on the stage.

“I didn’t expect to present this artist. It is surely a great honor to me as Nikolay Baskov is considered as “The Golden Voice of Russia”. I can’t say I’m familiar with all his songs but the hit ones I know for sure. It was not that easy for a woman to copy his manner of performing. We decided to show Baskov not as the opera singer, but as a popular artist, whose positive energy can get the audience worked up. I’m very interested in Nikolay’s opinion and hope that he’s going to like the result” – says Nastya.

Ла3Last weekend the shooting set of “ShowMustGoOn” turned into some 1930s’ Cabaret. Nastya performed as Liza Minnelli, the legend of American cinema of the previous century. It was the times of flamboyant dances and eccentric costumes.

The film “Cabaret” brought Liza her first Oscar for the Best Actress in a Leading Role while Nastya got the affection of the audience and jury’s approval for recreating Minnelli’s chair dance to “Mein Herr” song.

 “I was lucky to perform as Liza. First and foremost, she is an actress who sets good example of the real great artist should act. It was hard to work on choreography because I didn’t have enough physical skills to dance with such a partner (chair). I’m glad I’ve been into some training and despite my bruises and backache, I’ve learnt this uneasy dance, which, by the way, is now one of my favorite ones. This remarkable and outstanding performance is exactly what I’ve been dreaming to create!” , – says Nastya.

Nastya Made Herself Brunette Again

Despite fact that the singer Natasha Koroleva is a Meritorious Artist of Russia, we shouldn’t forget about her Ukrainian roots. Nastya Zadorozhnaya tried to display all the charm of this Ukrainian nymph on “ShowMustGoOn” project.

«“Natasha has some typical characteristic traits that I tried to show, maybe even exaggerate sometimes, but I do believe she should not be offended. The performance was spectacular and funny and I’m very thankful to the organizers for this amusing story. I even performed on the pole, which happened to be rather difficult as I was covered with bruises after. And of course we could not pass off two loves of her – Tarzan and Igor Nikolayev. I hope the viewers liked the show. It was fun”   – shares Nastya.

Nastya Performs as Elka on “ShowMustGoOn”

In the 6th episode of “ShowMustGoOn” Nastya had to perfom as Elka, very specific Russian and Ukrainian singer.

Ёлка1In the 6th episode of “ShowMustGoOn” Nastya had to perfom as Elka, very specific Russian and Ukrainian singer.

I remember that many years ago we had vocal training together with Elka and she even gave me some lessons. I had to work hard this time because of her very peculiar voice with specific vibrations and some other particularities. I’ve noticed that during the concerts it’s very important for her to have some private space and the other dancers and musicians keep some distance with her. We are two different characters but it’s exactly what makes the whole project interesting. I’m so deep into my work that I can’t even imagine how much I’m gonna miss it after the show ends” – shares Nastya.
