Sergei Shesteperov did not shine in Star Factory-5, in which he took part under the direction of Alla Pugacheva, but he moved from voice to dance in time and became a very popular and influential choreographer – he has been judging the dance show for many years, leading students, running a dance school. We all know him as Miguel. In an interview with Yulia Menshova, the artist told how he met his father at the age of 33, why he wanted to leave the Dancing project, what is the call of blood and Old songs about the main thing on TNT.

And I like to live an ordinary life. I want to be behind the scenes. But Slava convinced me that Dances is my project, a project for me. Although I didn’t want to, I accepted.

“I ran out of there! I caught the Maidan, I was scared. I felt like my life was threatened. As soon as I started seeing malicious people on the street, I realized that it was not safe for me to be there. There were situations where I was met with hate. And because I was black, and because I spoke Russian. Once a fight with skinheads was saved by the fact that in their group [которая хотела напасть] it turned out to be our old technician. He said, “Guys, I’m Miguel, okay. There is no need.” The last time something like this happened in Moscow was in 2003.”
“They asked me to be photographed in the image of Hippolyte. I know about the “self-irony” of fate. I have never seen Christmas lights. Change the channel, yes.
