BAKU, Azerbaijan, Azerbaijan The show “Mask” is the Russian version of the world hit The Masked Singer.
The second place was also taken by an Azerbaijani – People’s Artist of Azerbaijan Yusif Eyvazov, who was hiding under the guise of “Lama”.
One step away from victory stopped the sweetest and kindest participant in the project – Lama.

Each time the audience and the jury witnessed the real triumph of the world famous opera singer Yusif Eyvazov, who joked, was sad, rejoiced and amazed with his performance.
Yusif Eyvazov shared his impressions with NTV: “Guys, I can’t describe the feelings that overwhelm me now, because it was my dream – to go on this stage, to enter this project – from the very moment I saw the first release of the show last year. And this dream has come true, you have fulfilled it. When they called me and asked if I wanted to participate, I immediately agreed, although I knew that in January I had eight performances of “Turandot” at the Teatro alla Scala, in February – five performances in Paris. I didn’t understand how I would technically do it, but I agreed anyway, because for me it was a dream. With this amazing mask, I could be who I have never been, anywhere. “
The crocodile faithfully and persistently walked towards his goal, his charisma, energy and charm beat absolutely everyone, and the jury called him a superstar. Jony, who had been hiding under the guise of Crocodile for three months, admitted that even during the first season he wanted to take part in the show and demonstrate what he had not shown earlier in his songs. And he did it for sure, because every time the jury and the audience reacted to his numbers was incredible. The judges of the project were able to guess the talented artist and named his name before removing the mask.
Ions: “How did you see me through? It’s just stunned. I have never experienced so many emotions in my life. In fact, I know why it turned out this way, why the “Mask” show is the best show in Russia. The answer is very simple: because all the people who are involved in this show are so bright, so kind and so radiant, and so passionate about their work that you just want to give yourself completely to this show. “
