The annual gala dinner of the Russian national music award “Victoria”, as always, was made noise at the “Marriott-Aurora” hotel.

Academicians of the award gathered at the reception, including: Igor Krutoy, Philip Kirkorov, Ani Lorak, Anita Tsoi, Denis Klyaver, Tatyana Bulanova, Jasmin, Alena Sviridova, Artem Kacher, Andrey Derzhavin, Anatoly Tsoi, special correspondent of Komsomolskaya Pravda Maria Remizova and many other representatives of show business and reputable media.

– The Victoria Award has been a landmark event in the domestic music industry for more than five years, not only because of the big names among academics and nominees, but mostly because of the impartiality of voting. This is the most honest award, – said the co-founder of the Victoria Prize, maestro Igor Krutoy. – Getting into the nomination, the artists do not demand victories, because they know that the winners are determined objectively, by a majority of votes of independent academicians. We want to give the industry an impetus for development.

According to the ideologist, co-founder of the Victoria Prize, poet Mikhail Gutseriev, it is in the complete objectivity of the voting results that the fundamental difference of the only professional music award in Russia lies.

At the gala dinner, an audit committee was also selected to monitor the voting process and its results. The commission included: Kristina Orbakaite, Yuri Aksyuta, Nina Shatskaya, Alexander Ivanov, Andrey Kosinsky, Yevgeny Kobylyansky and Tatyana Litvinenko.

On October 20, exactly at midnight, the voting was officially started. The organizing committee received about 700 applications – this is a new Victoria’s record. Therefore, in 2021, the fight for the prize will be especially hot.

The winners in all 17 nominations will be announced on December 2 at the award ceremony at the State Kremlin Palace.

Meanwhile, celebrities flashed bright outfits at dinner. So, as always, the elegant Kristina Orbakaite chose a “total black” – fitted dress with lace and translucent inserts in the bodice area for the publication.

Philip Kirkorov appeared in an unexpected rocker outfit from designer Philip Plain.

Philip was accompanied by his friends at dinner: Eurovision participant from Moldova Natalia Gordienko, singer Ani Lorak, blogger Dava.

And Joseph Prigogine surprised his colleagues with rapid weight loss.

– I dropped 10 kilos already, – Joseph shared with kp.ru.

As it turned out, Joseph had a bet with a friend for an amount with six zeros that by the New Year he would get rid of 20 kilos.

And now halfway has already been passed.

Recall: the producer’s wife, singer Valeria, has repeatedly complained that her husband loves to eat deliciously, which affects his figure. Valeria, as the owner of ideal forms, wants her husband to enter sports mode, but it is not so easy to fight the appetite of her beloved.

“She stands with a baton every day and says: if you want to live to old age, you must at least take care of yourself,” Prigozhin said in an interview with Channel 5. – Lera does not shout, she does not swear, she does not yell. I have never heard her shouting there, scolding someone.

Apparently, the spouses managed to come to a consensus. Joseph has already noticeably built up and is determined to part with the rest of the extra pounds.
