Christina Aguilera

Probably the main music event this fall, Christina Aguilera’s first show in Kyiv is already close at hand. Her appearance in Ukraine’s capital sparked some hysteria right from the start. First of all, her show at Palats Ukraina was to become the most expensive concert in Ukraine’s history. Despite impressively steep prices, most tickets were sold, but still lots of Kyivans weren’t able to attend the show. Luckily, Christina agreed to give another one, a cheaper concert at Palats Sportu.

The second big news was that pop diva’s managers proposed Ukrainian singer Ani Lorak, who won second place at Eurovision 2008, to sing for free as a warm-up act on Christina’s concert. Ani Lorak thought it an insult and, of course, refused. And finally, until now, skeptics don’t believe Aguilera will perform in Kyiv at all, after she abolished her concert in Moscow scheduled on Oct. 16.
Yet optimists believe the 27-year-old singer will come and present her greatest hits album, “Keeps Gettin’ Better – A Decade of Hits,” scheduled for release on Nov. 11. With this album, Aguilera will commemorate her 10 years in the music industry. It will include No. 1 hits at the Billboard Hot 100: “Genie In A Bottle,” “What A Girl Wants,” and “Come on Over” from her debut album “Christina Aguilera,” released in 1999. The new album will include also two songs from her second full-length English album “Stripped.” One of them, “Dirrty,” was highly criticized for its controversial video, while another, classical ballad “Beautiful” earned Aguilera the Grammy for best female pop vocal performance. And, of course, the album couldn’t be full without “Ain’t No Other Man,” a lead single from the last “Back to Basics” album, which won Aguilera yet another Grammy.
