Народный Артист 2003

«Народный Артист» is the Russian version of the British Pop Idol. It is a very popular show (almost) all over the world, where the people chose their favorite singer, by voting every week. Two talented singers from Murmansk, Russia definetly did not miss out on their opportunity to become the first Russian Idol. Алексей (Aleksey) and Евгений Гоман (Evgeniy Goman) are two brothers who decided to take the chance. Both Aleksey and his older brother Evgeniy made the TOP 100, but afterwards one of the brothers was voted off. Evgeniy was voted off by the TOP 75, but Aleksey continued. Soon enough Aleksey became the favorite singer who was voted for the most. Aleksey made the TOP 10, where he met his girlfriend Mariya Zaitseva. Out of the 6 girls in the TOP 10, Mariya was voted off the last, and became 4th in this competition, where she also joined a group группа «Ассорти» ("A Sortie") along with the other girls. Then it was down to TOP 3, and all were boys. The competition between Aleksey Goman, Aleksey Chumakov, and Aleksandr Panaiotov was tight and hard. All three are talented singers from Russia. At the final night when it was down to TOP 2 (Aleksey Goman & Aleksandr Panaiotov) Aleksey sang the song "Русский парень" ("Russian Guy") which got him the nickname "Russian Guy." After all the hard work, at the final night, Aleksey won the first Russian idol, beating Aleksandr Panaiotov by almost half of the votes. (Aleksey 61.3% and Aleksandr 38.7%). Historically, Aleksey became the first Russian Idol. And almost a year afterwards he released his first solo album Русский парень.
