Via The National

A major announcement was dropped last night, in Moscow, during a sold-out Bravo awards ceremony; that Abu Dhabi is set to host the colorful Russian music awards in November. The awards will bring Eurovision-style glamour to the capital for a ceremony set to feature the best of Russian music and a smattering of international pop and classical music stars.

The two-night event this weekend in Moscow was sponsored by Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism; to promote tourism in the United Arab Emirates. The first half, which focuses on pop, was held at the Kremlin State Theatre Saturday night, and the second-half, which is all about classical music, will be at the Bolshoi theatre tonight.

Al Jassmi traveled all the way to Moscow not only for his debut performance on Russian soil but also to receive the award for Best Middle East Artist! He stated to the National, “It is a pleasure to be here. I am not only coming here as a singer but as a representative of my country and its capital city Abu Dhabi. It also a chance to meet with the wonderful Russian people – the weather is cold, but their hearts are warm.”

WE SAID THIS: Can’t November just come already?
