DZIDZO Becomes Jury Member of Ukraina Maie Talant. Dity 01 february 2016

25th of January 2016 — Kid season of STB’s Ukraina Maie Talant/Ukraine’s Got Talent show will be on air with the renewed judging panel: popular Ukrainian singer and group leader DZIDZIO has joined the judges of the project – Ighor Kondratiuk and Slava Frolova.


The changes have also touched the hosts of the kid season – now they are Dmytro Tankovych and 11-year-old super finalist of Tantsiuiut Vsi!-8/Everybody’s Dancing! Elina Antonova.


“The first shooting day of the auditions showed, that we had made an absolutely right decision – DZIDZO perfectly copes with the responsibilities of the judge,” – says Oxana Bolkun, Head of STB’s Creative Unit, which produces the show. “He’s got a rare and very valuable for us quality – despite the life experience of an adult, he’s preserved a sincerity and open perception of the world, inherent in children, which allows DZIDZO to find a common language even with the youngest participants. Elia Antonova perfectly contrasts with grown-up, sometimes ironical and strict, Dmytro Tankovych. Actually, she’s on the same wavelength with all the participants, as she herself has recently been in their place, and the kids, in their turn, aren’t scared and keep no secrets from her.”


DZIDZIO noted that he’s happy to work with the experienced colleagues in a new for him project: “I want to thank Ighor Kondratiuk and Slava Frolova, for they helped me to blend into their team easily and quickly. I adore children and I’m sure we should treat them the same way as we treat adults. Very small kids are on their own special ‘wave’, I like to listen to what they say and observe them. I’m learning a lot from my colleagues and participants” – told us the singer.


In the words of Dmytro Tankovych, his partner excellently copes with the new for her role of a TV-host: “Elia is a very talented child, who not only dances well, but feels free in any situation – she’s cheerful, lively and never gets confused among the great number of people. I’m sure she has a promising future both in dancing and television.”


Shooting of Ukraina Maie Talant. Dity auditions started on January, 23. Participants blow the jury away with a huge variety of genres: from songs and dances to tricks, training and unique inventions.


The premiere of the show is coming off on STB shortly.
