from Sikharulidze's interview which I saw only today

S: I often roomed with Lyoshka Yagudin. Once, in Paris, we had such a great celebration, that we forgot about the gala.
Q: Really?
S: We forgot that the organizers shifted the beginning of the gala to 14.00 — usually we would skate in the evening. Racing along, we came to the rink an hour before the beginning. I had changed into my costume, Lena and I started warming up. Suddenly, Yagudin: "Help! I left my costume in the hotel!" And it was almost his turn to go on the ice!
Q: What did you do?
S: I gave him my shirt and trousers. First, I skated, then Lyokha skated in the same costume. Even though he's ten centimeters shorter. By the way, do you know when all the fun starts in the figure skating?
Q: When?
S: The night before the gala, when you can relax already. We used to all get together in someone’s room, open beer, wine, champagne... Once when I was rooming with Yagudin, we had a party for forty people or so. Russians and foreigners. You should have seen our room in the morning! We woke up and were stunned. A chair was broken, the lampshade was torn off the lamp, the couch had cigarette burns, glasses were broken, empty bottles strewn around. While we were trying to get our bearings, the manager appeared. He gave us a bill for everything that was broken, for an ottoman that disappeared without a trace, for all the drinks that were put on our room. When we heard the total, we instantly sobered up. Two thousand dollars! For us at the time it was a cosmic sum. But it couldn't be helped, so we paid.

Skating in a pair

Yagudin started to skate in a pair in the "Ice Age" TV-show. Actually, first it was called "Stars on Ice" (when he skated with Pushkina). All the girls are not skaters.

Valeria Lanskaya skated, when she was a child, so they could do interesting numbers.
She was Yagudin's third partner, they skated together in 2008 and 2009.

It is a beautiful tale by Evgeni Shvarts, the movie is very beautiful too. The young man is a bear turned into a man. He wants to become a bear again. The Magician promises him, that it will happen, if a princess kisses him. The Bear meets The Princess, but she is so nice, that he doesn't dare to frighten her, he runs away. They both fall in love. Finally... The Bear finds her again, they kiss, but The Bear doesn't turn into a bear after the kiss.

There are different variants of this folk song, but anyway the song says, that he has married his death, so I think, that it is odd to sing "still alive" in the end.

Viktoria Daineko was the second partner for Yagudin (2007). Skating was difficult for her, but some numbers are funny. Yagudin also tells his leg didn't obey after the surgery, so that Daineko was shocked, when he had come to the rink and she saw he couldn't be as great as she expected him to be.
Yagudin had to explain, that they were not lovers. He had a girlfriend. Daineko asked him to be an actor in the video of her new song. He asked why don't they sing together. And he sang with her. Now he switches this song on, when he wants his tired friends to laugh, to be more cheerful.

It's Oh So Quiet (their first number)

Don't Worry, My Country


Let My People Go

Singing in The Rain

Waiting For a Miracle

From Dusk Till Dawn

Oxana Pushkina was Yagudin's first partner - in 2006 (before his surgery). She is much elder than him. It was difficult for them to become partners. But soon their relationship became better. Now Pushkina trusted Yagudin, obeyed him, laughed, but... she still tried to be strict with him. He didn't care. He kept playing with her.
Many years later Pushkina was saying, that Yagudin had become a good friend for her.

Dancing in a pair

Kristina Kretova danced with Yagudin in 2011. The project was called "Bolero". All the girls were ballerinas, all the boys were skaters. Kretova and Yagudin became the winners.
Kristina tells, that their families became friends accidentally, two months before the project. They were having a rest, when Yagudin took a seat at their table, he said: "You are Russians, aren't you? Today is my birthday." When Averbukh had told Yagudin about the project, Yagudin decided, that he wanted Kristina to be his partner.
If Yagudin didn't like some music which Kristina wanted to take, Kristina could phone Tanya Totmianina, and after that Alexei agreed with her choice.
Kristina was sorry, when the project came to an end, Alexei answered: "Nobody makes you forget my phone number."

Yeah! He also danced zumba, those videos are funny. :laugh15:

As for these projects, I've never seen one of his dances with Daineko (Youtube has it only without sound) and I think I've never seen one number with Lanskaya... Yet I did my best to find everything what we have on Youtube.

You can congratulate me! I joined this forum in 2016, but I "started" Yagudin's thread in 2013. :clapper:
Now I can edit the first post in this thread.
