“Ukraine’s talented people have much more to amaze their audience this time,” said Tala Onyschuk, project director of “Ukraine’s Got Talent” show. “We will make our viewers feel they are in ancient Rome’s Colosseum where only the best performances were seen.”
While in 2009 more than 14,000 Ukrainians came to try their chances, in 2010 twice as many aspirants are ready to show off their talents. Circus performers and acrobats are among the second season’s peculiarities. “Many of these circus performers are not available for average Ukrainians because they work mostly abroad. But this time they came back home to show their talents in two-minute performances,” Onyschuk said.
Since last spring, STB TV channel has featured talented Ukrainians from all over the country. The most colorful participants of the first season of “Ukraine’s Got Talent” show included sand artist Kseniya Simonova, impersonator Valery Yurchenko and oriental dancer Alla Kushnir. They parlayed their TV fame into a tour of eight cities, including Lviv, Kherson, Odesa, Zaporizhya, Donetsk, and, of course, Kyiv, to encourage other people to take part in the show.
