      In the scandal became the ceremony of awarding the national Prize in the field of performing art-Premium People Awards. Several thousand people – parents with talented children from different parts of Russia arrived yesterday in the State Kremlin Palace to receive well-deserved awards, as stated by the organizers. And only after several hours of waiting in the hall, it became known that any award will not, and will take place gala-a concert.

      This situation outraged the parents of the children gathered in the center of the room, loudly shouting “Shame!” and demanding the award. By the way, to get to the prize, they had to pay two thousand for tickets. Angry adults because because of the strict pass system at the Kremlin Palace was a large place – the children, some of whom are people with disabilities were forced to stand for long periods in the cold. And after they had a few hours to sit in the hall waiting for the award ceremony. It said in microblogging one of the witnesses of this event.

      “So that was today’s infamous final Art-Premium People Awards, when it was promised to award 4,000 participants of this competition coming from all corners of Russia and paid huge amounts of money for coming, and for contest and concert tickets. Children came to the concert to 10 for rehearsals. Yesterday, at a late rehearsal, someone from the children fainted because of stress, without water and food. Today made 250 meals for children in the Kremlin, about which they did not know. 20 people ate the rest of lunch and didn’t wait for the children, rehearsing the concert.”

      To appease angry parents had the First channel Andrey Malakhov. He would have to answer to the people for the organizers of the award ceremony.

      “I was invited to conduct a gala concert with participation of talented children, – said the chief editor of “StarHit” Andrey Malakhov. I know how difficult a lot of guys from different parts of a large country to get to the auditions of “the Voice” and other shows: not everyone can afford even just to come to the capital. We “Let them say” sometimes we make esters with gifted children, so this evening I was going to watch someone for future programs. In General, it was agreed to hold the event on the eve of Old New Year, to please both children and yourself. The concert was also stated MBAND, Makarska, say.

      In the Kremlin I arrived at the appointed time, at the entrance to me rushed moms and teachers: “Andrew, we are waiting for you! We are hungry! The organizers no one can find…” I knew the organizers from St. Petersburg, and although in the past the event already have been held in different cities, in Moscow it was the first time. So, of course, could be nuances. Such an important area, as the Kremlin – here everything should be clear, consistent “from” and “to”. I tried to calm unhappy, said we understand.
      In the dressing room asked aides to find out what happens. It turned out that from 16.00 to 18.00 it was announced the awarding of diplomas to children who were not included in the gala concert. However, the organizers were late and didn’t. The award promised after the concert. He was supposed to start in 15 minutes and the presenter asked to the stage.
      The scene I was met by the angry crowd, the hall chanted “Award! Rewarding!” To me remained nothing how to go out and try to resolve the situation. Of course, I understand the feelings of parents and children, who dreamed of the main stage. Tried to calm them down, offered oranges from my room. And explained that in this same time behind the scenes are their peers, they are very worried before the performance.
      This evening I kind of found themselves on different sides of the barricades. It is clear that what happened in part associated with me because I was leading. But to ignore the dissatisfaction of parents, I could not. Inclined to write off the whole story on Friday, the 13th. of Course, the organization of the event could be better. But what I did not like: there is a concert, everyone finally calmed, the scene deserved haired wise Bedros Kirkorov, and then begins again in the hall: “Awards! Rewarding!” First of all, it tells about the culture of behavior of adults who use their children in vain… that night I spoke from the stage as a child was preparing for the recitation competition, rehearsing day and night, but took 3rd place. And it didn’t mean that I’m a loser. On the contrary – I learned how to lose. Any failure gives us the impetus to move on. So, first of all, we must learn to lose.”
