Participant of the qualifying round - Alisa Dvoeglazova, 9 years old.
Children's TV shows - the trend of last season. When on the First ratings the childish "Voice" became higher than the adult, kids on TV were used everywhere and on each channel it brought excellent figures. In the figure skating figure of the ignorant was brought about the same time: in 2016, the project "Children on Ice" passed completely unnoticed - at cable frequencies and with a smaller scale. The jury watched the small participants on video recordings, so it was not very spectacular.
"Ice Age. Children "in many ways grew out of that show. From the "Children on Ice", the Supreme Judge Tatyana Tarasova , presenter Alexei Yagudin and even several figure skaters and figure skaters flew to the First . For the main channel of the country they organized a full-time casting in the small arena in Luzhniki Stadium and got into the leading Russian media player, Evgenia Medvedeva.
For her, who picked up a successful image from an older sister, encouraging the unreached kids. The stylists did not do it in an amazedly adult way, the hair style in the style of Sailor Moon added to the Wife of ease and brought her closer to the contestants. She has minor problems with diction and scenic speech, but this is uncritical for the non-professional presenter - no one forces the girl to switch to a television career.
On the Internet, they were alarmed because of Medvedeva's new work. Adeline Sotnikova also took a break after the Olympics, also discovered television and also referred to the off-season and injuries. It's easy to check where Adeline spent four years - in constant phrases about kambek and rehabilitation.
And their difference is not even that Sotnikova lost motivation from the "gold" of Sochi. Olympic Champion-2014 was a "Dancing with the Stars" participant - this is a constant rehearsal and weekly broadcasts, in which it is very difficult to put the training on the skating rink and recovery. Medvedeva - the mentor, who needs on the site one shooting day. It even morally recovers in communication with children, simultaneously switches from ice and stays on it, but in a different capacity.
Surprisingly, the Ice Age did not use almost anything from what the children's shows like - the participants' mimicry, their spontaneity and unreasonable reactions. In the profiles before the cameras, the kids lively and cute told about the championship plans, but on the ice in front of Yagudin's microphone and the jury's gaze were completely lost. There was no empathy between the micro-figures and the mentors, which is very important in the frame and in principle in dealing with children. After unsuccessful hire juniors remained one on one with the tragedy and experienced slaps of judges on their feet - even the joke leader was not saved.
And this distinguishes the "Ice Age" from "Voice", "Best of all", "Blue Bird" and "You are super!" - in the talent show the arbitrators hug the tiny artists, cheer them up and say that everything will be fine. Tarasova, Maxim Trankov, Ilya Averbukh, Roman Kostomarov and Tatyana Navka honestly said where the guys did not twist, where they did not jump, but where they did not reach.
And this seems to be the sincerity that we expect from Russian television, but which is completely out of place in programs with children in the main characters. Lupite celebrities with a formed psyche, which for six seasons rolled in the adult "Ice Age", but 8-, 9-, and 10-year-old children already get badly criticized cars from their coaches and sometimes their parents - why put them mentally naked all over the country?
"It's a competition, as you want," Misha Navka said with a smile. And when the mother (or coach) asks the child for the film "Will you come next year?" The guy, of course, firmly replies "No", because next to him at the time of the drama there was not a single soul who would understand him.
The qualifying round continues. Coaches continue to form their teams. In total, each mentor needs to coach three singles and three dance pairs.
The second day of the qualifying round is the final day. When all teams are staffed, participants will compete with each other. Each week the mentors will come up with bright numbers for their wards, which will be assessed by a strict jury headed by Tatyana Tarasova. Well, the audience will observe how the young figure skaters unfold and how their skills are growing from time to time. Finalists will be one single figure skater and one pair.
Trainers: Tatiana Navka, Maxim Trankov, Roman Kostomarov and Ilya Averbukh.
The moderators are Alexey Yagudin and Yevgeniya Medvedeva.

A young figure skater from Ekaterinburg performed at the show "Ice Age: Children". Together with the partner, she won judges with her skill, "AIF-Ural" reports on Monday, April 9.
10-year-old Ekaterina Alisa Ovsyankina moved to Moscow just recently to study at the school of Honored Coach of Russia Alexei Gorshkov. Alice came to the project together with the 12-year-old Muscovite Fedor Orekhov. The couple skates together for only one month. "I trust my partner, he is experienced, you can skate with him absolutely calmly, trust everything. I'm not afraid of difficult elements, because he will survive and do everything right, "- said the figure skater during the filming of the project.
At the same time, the girl noted that although they had met the characters with Fyodor, they still have to "rub their hair" against each other. "This project will help us become one, the whole team," commented Alisa's partner Fyodor Orekhov. On the project, the skaters represented the Moscow region.
When the pair went out on the ice, the leader behind the scenes noted the pair's ability to reincarnate: "From the first moment of his appearance on the ice, Ovsyankin and Orekhov are in the image, before the musical part began to play." When the skaters performed the number, the anchorman noted: "Together they skated only for a month, but it is immediately evident that they have found a common language."
