Stas Shurins who represented at “New Wave” Latvia this year’s, made his competition results. Now, when emotions and stress is over, he soberly evaluated and contest itself, and his repertoire, and the prize from Alla Pugacheva.

On how he assesses the competition and his part in it, Stas told in comments DELFI: «The contest “New Wave” has its own, well-defined notions of what music is, there is a certain format, the set of rules, conditions under which all it is happening and that’s fine. All musicians who has ever agreed to, have already participated in the festival, or just going to become parties should, by default, get used to these laws – comments Shurins. – At the competition, of course, everything from the repertoire, hairstyle, choreography, and stage performances, all held under the guidance of the organizing committee of the festival, because they release the product under the brand name of Igor Krutoy, and it should be an adequate level. I was there and saw how much energy, health, nerves took Alexander Davidovich Revzin it. He had to do everything, and no matter what time and what day of the week, to do all that it must be properly turned into a holiday.”

Stas Shurins preparing for the contest other songs that he felt perfectly and confidently, but the organizers felt they were not hits enough and appropriate for performances, “My stuff was replaced, gave another and sent to deal with it … The end of the story, I think everybody saw … I do not want to make excuses, but I consider it necessary to share my thoughts about everything that happened. All I could do with this material, which has not even left the original form of the work I did. I told everyone that it is alien to me songs. If our duet song with Timur we managed somehow, in spite of the sound on the stage, or rather his lack of first, my first day incredibly disappointed me, especially in the TV. “

“The award from an artist of this magnitude, for me was a complete surprise – says Shurins about the award of Alla Pugacheva. – I’d like to thank her for the confidence, for such a high score. Alla Borisovna not only a great singer but also a composer, in addition, it is famous for its incredible ” foresight”, that it does not fail, therefore her “blessing” for me, as a writer, a very important and significant. Incredibly nice that person this level noticed and believed in me. I just have to roll up our sleeves and do everything not to disappoint and to meet the expectations.”
