The Viagra group. What is the new composition of Viagra? Who joined the new group of Viagra? Show New Viagra

Grandiose konstantin Meladze’s show “I Want to VIA Gru” became the most successful music television project for many years. It was shown immediately in four CIS countries: Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan and Ukraine. The producer recruited participants for his new group, the name of which is still unknown, since the VIA Gra brand belongs to Dmitry Kostyuk, who also promoted the group in the old days. On October 25, 2013, the finale of the show was held.

Sedokova said that the vote was a hoax

Recall last Friday, Konstantin Meladze announced a vote of viewers, according to the results of which the winner was to be determined. I even got the impression that all this is true and the fate of the new “VIA Gra” is really in the hands of the people who voted and paid money for it. But not for long before the voting stopped ex-soloist of the group “VIA Gra” and guest of the project Anna Sedokova said, what voting is nothing more than a hoax and winner is already selected. The singer sincerely sympathized with those who sent SMS in support of the composition they liked. And at the end of the program, Sedokova’s statement was confirmed.

New misha Romanova, Eric Herceg and Anastasia Kozhevnikova became the soloists of the famous group. A couple of weeks ago, these girls almost left the project by decision of Meladze himself. Then they were saved by the ex-soloist of “VIA Gra” Nadezhda Meyher, who became the mentor of the beginning performers. Probably everyone believed in “salvation”, but is it really so?

The winner is determined before the vote ends

Just at that time, Anna Sedokova wrote on her pages on social networks that in the project, the people they need are shown in a favorable light: they give the best songs, costumes, production numbers, etc. After that case it turned out that Misha Romanova is a good friend of the director of the show “I Want in VIA Gro” Alan Badoev. And a few days ago, when the viewers were still voting, in the media appeared gossip: in order to keep up with Kostyuk, who recently presented his version of “VIA Gra”, Konstantin Meladze has already recorded a new clip featuring Misha, Erica and Nastya.

In early September, we told you about the new talent show “”. The project has become the highest rated Ukrainian show this season. For three consecutive weeks, viewers from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan watched television castings. In the second round, the jury selected only 60 girls, who from tomorrow will have to go through new tests with dances and songs. Not only girls unknown to a wide audience wanted to get into the VIA Gra group, but also familiar faces.

Erica Herceg – Playmate, May 2013 (Russia)

So, for example, the male audience could recognize Eric Herceg, who was filming
for Playboy magazines. In November 2012, she graced the Ukrainian edition, and in the Russian May issue of 2013 she was named the Girl of the Month. Looking at Erica’s frank photo shoot, you hardly believe that this girl studied at a religious lyceum and before the age of 18 did not meet with guys. Erica used to be overweight, but then decided to become a model and began working on herself. Now she is not ashamed of her body. In other matters, we are still ashamed to publish such pictures, so see all the most interesting in the magazine.

Bogdan Nazarov in an erotic photo shoot for XXL magazine (June)

Another famous Ukrainian woman who got a second chance was Mrs.
Ukraine 2012 “, 24-year-old Bogdana Nazarova. At the casting, Nazarova admitted that instead of a fairy tale she got a tyrant husband who provided her with luxury and kept on a” short leash. “The girl had an electric shock in her bedside table because she was afraid of attacks from her husband Despite the contestant’s rather poor vocal data, Konstantin Meladze gave Nazarova a chance and missed the second round, considering her “intimidated and harassed.” In fact, Bogdana has already divorced her tyrant husband, therefore she wears the title “ex Mrs. Ukraine” and is actively flirting with ex-husband of ex-soloist of VIA Gra Santa Dimopulos. On the social network page of Vladimir appeared a photo of a romantic dinner of a couple with words of gratitude. “Bogdanchik, thank you for the best romantic evening, and of course – for the violinist,” signed Vladimir Bogdana, in turn, almost immediately wrote a confession of Samsonenko’s sincere and deep love under a joint photo.The cavalier did not appreciate the refined lyricism of the crowned beauty and simply deleted the message. It is understandable, because on Instagram he posts photos with another girl.

Ani Caro can undress for men, but will not kneel before them

The first day was not without scandal. Ex-soloist of the Hot
chocolate “Anna Karapetyan decided to return to show business after maternity leave. Konstantin already agreed to take her to the second round on the condition that Anna would lose a couple of kilograms and resume vocal lessons. But the sultry beauty herself refused to participate in the show because of Igor Vernik’s frivolous behavior. In a telephone conversation with Vera Brezhneva, a girl with a hot character was indignant at the jury’s behavior: “I was never asked to crawl on my knees. On my knees I can only stand in front of two people – in front of my son and in front of my mother. But not in front of anyone. “Apparently, kneeling is more embarrassing than shooting completely naked in amateur photography.

Svetlana Dzonin was denied. The second Vera Brezhnev on stage is not needed

Also, a blonde with a lovely smile Svetlana Dzonin came to the casting,
conquered the jury by its resemblance to Vera Brezhneva. Svetlana married an Italian and moved to Italy, but for the show was ready to return to Ukraine. True, a bright appearance did not help the girl get into the second round.

Misha Romanova has friendly support in the person of Max Barsky

Successfully in the second stage was Misha Romanova, ward of Alan Badoeva
(project director) and girlfriend of Max Barsky. The girl at the casting performed her solo song “Show me how to love.” The jury noted that Misha is not quite in the format of VIA Gra, but her vocal data allows her to go further. Perhaps the girl herself does not want to get into the group so much as to light up on the central TV channels as an aspiring solo performer.

Yulianna Lukasheva is no stranger to photo shoots in men’s magazines

And the self-confident Yulianna Lukasheva, the former soloist of the Brilliant group,
the jury brought the tears to the stage. They harshly criticized the girl for a set of stage stamps in the room. As it turned out, experience on the big stage was a disadvantage, not an advantage over other contestants. True, Konstantin Meladze was touched by Julianna’s tears, so he gave her a second chance.

Ekaterina Prigoda was suitable for Playboy magazine

Another Playmate of the Russian edition of Playboy appeared at the casting
talent show and performed the “Romance” of the group Spleen. Konstantin Meladze for a long time could not decide what was wrong with this girl: “Either she is stupid, or strange.” And without having understood this difficult issue, the producer missed the red-haired model in the second stage to clarify the situation.

“Miss Georgia 2011” Janet Kerdikoshvili went into the second round

Another winner of the beauty contest came to the casting talent show
“I want to go to VIA Gro.” Charming and modest girl Janet Kerdikoshvili holds the title of “Miss Georgia 2011”. There is very little information about her. Only scandals related to Russian citizenship, which could prevent the girl from entering the Miss World contest and losing her title. However, Janet again received Georgian citizenship and retained the status of “Miss Georgia”. There were also rumors that Janet was supposed to sing in the alternative group “VIA Gra” by Dmitry Kostyuk, but preferred to take part in the show of Konstantin Meladze.

Ekaterina Volkova used to light dance floors

The next girl is known not only to nightlife lovers in Belarus,
but also to some viewers. Go-go dancer Katya Volkova took part in another talent show “Ukraine May Talent” and won projects “Dancing by the Rules-4”, “Queen of the Dance Floor”, etc. Her incendiary number under the hit of Serebro’s group “Mama Lyuba” was remembered by many viewers, and the lyrical performance of the song Jennifer Lopez allowed the girl to go to the next stage.

Julia Lauta from “Hollywood FM” marks in VIA Gro

The performance of Julia Lauta on the air of the program was cut to 20 seconds. But we
anyway, they recognized her as a member of the Yuri Nikitin group “Hollywood FM”, which also appeared in an erotic photo shoot for “Playboy”. True, she was supposed to appear on the cover with her bandmate, but Alesya Spelova at the last moment refused to be naked for shooting because of her strict father. But Julia decided to show her figure in all its glory because of the ex-guy who blackmailed her with candid pictures taken during their relationship. Now you won’t surprise anyone with those photos. We ourselves have all appreciated.

Photos of the other girls who went into the second round, see the gallery.

The Ukrainian women’s pop group, which appeared in 2000, has been “registered” for a long time in the Ukrainian-Russian show business and is confidently moving towards its 20th anniversary.

The project experienced periods of prosperity, when at the peak of popularity it gathered stadiums and concert halls with thousands of people, and lulls. But every time “VIA Gro” was tried to “write off to the archive”, the new composition of the group rebelled, like Phoenix from the ashes, and presented a new hit, proving once again that the last page was not written.

Konstantin Meladze and the golden composition of the ViaGRA group

The composition of the ensemble has changed as many times over 17 years. The group turned from a duet into a trio, then expanded to a quartet and again returned to the duet and trio. Participants changed – sexy beauties of varying degrees of talent. The names of many were remembered by music lovers, but the title of “golden” received the composition, and.

Composition

The project “VIA Gra” was born in the zero thanks to the producer from Ukraine Dmitry Kostyuk, the owner of the rating music channel “Biz-TV”. The creation of the female ensemble of Dmitry was inspired by the British group Spice Girls and the Russian one. To promote the team, Kostyuk invited the music producer of Biz-TV, who took the same position in VIA Gre.

The name of the sexy female trio was taken by a provocative and “exciting” fantasy. When pronouncing “VIA Gra”, music lovers had an allusion to a well-known medicinal product, and the decoding turned out to be very harmless: VIA – a vocal-instrumental ensemble, and “gra” – a “game” in Russian.

But in 2003, after the release of their debut English-language album, the producers received a warning from the producers of Viagra. The case could end in litigation, so Sony Music, the record company, indicated the trio as Nu Virgos.

The first participant of “VIA Gra” was a Ukrainian performer, a TV presenter on the channel Kostyuk. The announced casting attracted Julia Miroshnichenko and Marina Modina to the project. But shooting the first video for the song “Attempt No. 5” was screened out by Miroshnichenko and Modina.

The search for bright soloists was crowned with semi-success – a second “viagra” was found. Kostyuk and Meladze had to temporarily abandon the creation of a trio in favor of a duet.

The first composition of the group “Viagra”

The premiere of the debut song “Attempt No. 5” took place at the beginning of autumn 2000 on the Dmitry Kostyuk TV channel. The composition caused a sensation and instantly became a hit and a business card of “VIA Gra”. The single took the top steps of the charts and won the Golden Gramophone, Stopudovy hit and Golden Firebird awards.

In December 2000, the duo’s repertoire already had 7 songs. The first concert was the brainchild of Kostyuk and Meladze at the end of December of the same year in the “Ice Palace” of Dnepropetrovsk. The hits “Hug Me”, “Bomb” and “I Will Not Return” appeared video clips.

In the summer of next year, the producers signed a contract with the famous British record company Sony Music Entertainment.

“VIA Gra” toured the CIS countries, and in September released its debut album, named, like the first hit of the band. It included 11 songs and 2 remixes. The album was presented in October at the Luxor club in Moscow.

In early 2002, it became known that Nadezhda Granovskaya was pregnant. The producers announced the casting and replaced Nadezhda with model Tatyana Naynik. But Kostyuk and Meladze, remembering the initial intention to create a trio, found another participant -.

In May, the updated composition of the group presented the video “Stop! Stop! Stop! ”Directed by Semyon Gorov. The vocal parts of the hit for the first time went to a new participant – Sedokova. In July, the trio visited the “Slavic Bazaar”.

In September 2002, a video for the song “Good morning, Dad!” Appeared. Fans of “VIA Gra” rejoiced at Nadezhda Granovskaya, who returned to the scene a month after the birth of her son. In the video, the trio turned into a quartet, but soon the producers, believing that there were a lot of two brunettes, said goodbye to Naynik. Tatyana did not remain in debt and brought out a lot of ins and outs in the media.

Under the 2002 finals, Vinnitskaya announced her departure from the trio, and at the casting the producers found a replacement for her. In November, the new line-up was already rehearsing, and in January 2003 Alena Vinnitskaya said goodbye to VIA Groi, starting a solo career.

In February, the team presented the song “Do not leave me, love!” And a clip for it. Anna Sedokova became the soloist of the trio, Granovskaya and Brezhneva were on the sidelines. The single is called the best musical product “VIA Gra”.

The hit lasted in the top of the charts for 7 months. Later, in the 2009th, the video clip was recognized as the best clip of the decade.

In April 2003, VIA Gra presented the fans with the 2nd album Stop! Shot! ” Six months after the release, music lovers sold out half a million copies, and the album was awarded the Golden Disc. In May, the girls presented a new song, “Kill My Friend,” the video of which was leading on MTV Russia.

Performance of “VIA Gra” with the hit “Good morning, dad!” In the “Olympic” music critics called the most “thermonuclear” in the history of the star collective.

In September 2003, the premiere of the song “VIA Gra” took place. The hit “Ocean and Three Rivers” topped the radio chart of Russia, and in October the trio went on tour in Tokyo.

In November of that year, the “Viagra” in their “golden line-up” recorded the album “Biology”, presenting it at the capital’s New Manege. For 5 months the group gave 100 concerts in the cities of the CIS, neighboring countries, Germany and Israel. The lack of an advertising company did not prevent the Biology album from becoming a sales leader and receiving the Golden Disc.

February 2004 was marked by the “golden” hit of “VIA Gra” “No gravity”, which became the most popular song of the decade according to the polls of Afisha magazine and Russian Billboard.

In the spring of 2004, VIA Gru left Sedokova due to pregnancy, which caused shock among fans of the team.

The management found Ana a replacement – but soon the managers became convinced of the fallacy. Critics and fans started talking about the sunset of their favorite band. Foreign tours failed, foreign spectators went to Sedokova, announced on posters, and saw Loboda. According to Kostyuk, the damage from the replacement cost the loss of tens of millions of rubles.

Loboda was replaced by Valery Meladze, previously a backing vocalist. Rumors about the romance of Valery and Albina leaked to the press, and fans of “VIA Gra” stated that the participant did not match the sexual image of the collective.

The troubles of VIA Gra continued in 2005, when Brezhnev injured his spine while skiing. The new song “Diamonds” was presented to the public by a duet. The 5-year collective contract with Sony Music, which was about to end, was not extended by the label.

In early 2006, Granovskaya refused to work for VIA Gre, the producers announced a creative crisis and a possible finish to the project. But the group remained afloat, replaced by Nadezhda model Christina Kotz-Gottlieb, but she was replaced by a student. The new composition has recorded video clips of “Deceive, but stay”, “Flower and knife” and “L. M. L. ”

In April 2007, Koryagina preferred family life to creativity, she took a vacant place from Grozny. Vera Brezhneva left in the summer, in February 2008 she was replaced. The new composition of the trio recorded the song “My emancipation”.

At the beginning of 2009, Bagaudinova left, making way for Nadezhda Granovskaya, now Meikher, who returned to VIA Gro. The updated composition gave music lovers the hits “Anti-geisha” and “Crazy”. In March, Tatyana Kotova, giving a parting scandalous interview, left VIA Gro. The girl was replaced by a new vocalist.

In 2010, the group was nominated for the “Disappointment of the Year” award, and in 2011 rumors erupted about the breakdown of VIA Gra, Dmitry Kostyuk left the project. In July, the trio performed on the New Wave, and Konstantin Meladze denied rumors about the breakup.

In November 2011, Nadezhda Meyher left the group and gave birth to a second child. She took her place for a couple of months. The music market reacted to the leapfrog with vocalists with the second nomination “Disappointment of the Year”, and in November 2012 “VIA Gra” received an anti-award. The flickering of surnames and names of the new “Viagra girls” tired fans and critics. At the end of 2012, Meladze announced the closure of the project on January 1, 2013.

“I want V VIA Gro”

In September 2013, on four TV channels of the CIS, the reality show “I Want V VIA Gru” was launched, in which girls from countries of the former Soviet Union participated. 6 ex-participants of VIA Gra were the mentors of the applicants, Vera Brezhneva, the host of the show, and the project director.

The new composition of the ViaGRA group – Erica Herceg, Anastasia Kozhevnikova, Misha Romanova

Castings were held in four countries. At the end of October 2013, the final of the show was held, and the three winners were determined by SMS voting of the audience. The new “Viagra” became, and. In the finale of the project, the trio presented a new song, Truce.

The group has been criticized more than once, skeptics assured that the success of the “golden line-up” cannot be repeated. But the updated “VIA Gra” is gaining the leading positions of charts and charts, and the songs “Oxygen”, “I had another” and “It was wonderful” do not leave the rotation of the radio stations of the CIS countries. The repertoire of the trio of 17 “old” hits “VIA Gra”, in which the arrangement is changed.

Music

“VIA Gra” was originally conceived by the producers as a group exploiting sexuality and eroticism. Costumes, images of vocalists, provocative choreography and music videos, erotic photo shoots were criticized, but they met the plan.

Not in all countries the provocatively shocking style of “VIA Gra” was welcomed. In Belarus, the video for the song “Biology” was banned, considering it unnecessarily sexual. In Taiwan and Indonesia, a ban was introduced on the video “Stop! Stop! Stop! ”, And at concerts in Indonesia the girls were forced to wear closed trouser suits. In Israel, when they saw the exciting VIA Gru on the central television channel, Orthodox Jews rebelled.

The hits of the collective are written in the direction of pop music and meet the requirements of mass culture. The simplicity of the instrumental part, rhythm and emphasis on vocals correspond to this genre of music.

VIA Gra became the first group in the post-Soviet space to openly exploit sexuality. The experience of the project gave birth to the concept of “golden composition”, proving that there are irreplaceable ones. After the departure of Anna Sedokova, the unofficial leader of VIA Gra, the trio’s popularity declined. Critics and music lovers call the band’s last “golden” hit the single “Diamonds”.

VIA Gra now

In early summer 2016, it became known that a solo concert of the trio in Moscow was planned for February 2017. In November, the girls presented the song “Who are you to me?”, In December a clip appeared.

Group “ViaGRA” – composition of 2017

In January 2017, the solo concert “VIA Gra” in the capital was canceled. In October 2017, the release of the single “My Heart Is Busy” by Konstantin Meladze was released on Love Radio. The lyrics are written by Meladze and Misha Romanova. The video clip appeared in November.

“I want to go to VIA Gro! I want, want, want! ”- these are the words that any representative of the fair half of humanity who comes to the show and who is waiting for her“ yes ”from Konstantin Meladze is ready to shout. What is the specifics of this show? A well-known producer who created the legendary, sexy, alluring singing collective, which for several decades has literally excited the minds and hearts of men around the world!

How many girls have changed in the composition of this team, how many there were! Faces changed one after another, songs changed, but there was always incredible sexuality, feminine charm and magnetism, which drove the representatives of the strong half of humanity crazy. And how much everyone was upset when Konstantin Meladze said to the whole country that he was not going to work with the ladies team anymore, was not going to create new hits and compositions anymore! The entire male part of the country’s population was depressed, despaired and simply started to go crazy. All the loyal fans of the girls rushed to find out information about why the team broke up and whether he would reunite again. The World Wide Web began to panic, but soon a completely different rumor appeared: no, in fact, the team broke up only in order to reunite after a while! True, this will be a completely different story. This will be a new story about how you can become a real star literally in a matter of seconds!

Konstantin Meladze announced the start of the casting, which will be called “I Want to VIA Gru”! Girls from Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine will compete to wear the title of not only beautiful, singing and dancing, but also those who are able to become soloists of VIA Gra! In order to sing and be the very best, the main participants of the competition will have to pass a huge number of tests, a huge number of problems and difficulties! And only in this way can you finally get the title of the best and the title of the one that can seduce men with their movements and singing .

Who is in the show? We pass, do not be shy!

Talent, as they say, is always dear to us, honor is everywhere. And if you are sure of your own irresistibility, your own beauty, then you should pay attention to such a contest and “dive headlong” into the pool of fame, songs, and musical compositions.

Castings for those wishing to become “VIA Grantkami” will be held in the most famous and largest cities of the CIS. Beauties from all over the former USSR and even more will storm Moscow, Kiev, Almaty and Minsk! Which of the girls will wear the title of the most beautiful? And who will be the most vociferous? And who will get the title “Miss Grace”? And who is Miss Charm?

That’s just one such title will be oh how not enough! In fact, you need to collect all the titles, all the possible advantages in order to get into the legendary team! And if at least one component is not enough, then . Unfortunately, you have to say goodbye to such a contestant.

It is worth saying a few words about those hosts who will accompany the show, which will support the participants and help cope with excitement, emotions, emotions and much, much more .

Charming Vera Brezhnev .

This blonde today not only hosts numerous shows, but also sings, engages in charity work, acts in films . In general, Vera, who came to the group several years ago, turned out to be really just an incredibly beautiful and talented woman. And now she supports the contestants, makes them eliminate all their emotions, helps to cope with excitement before entering the big stage and plunging into the rays of spotlights .

And here, on the big stage, the casting participants will be met not only by a stern jury, but also by the kind, slightly with a characteristic hoarse voice of Vladimir Zelensky. This guy will support every participant in word and deed, will help her “rebuff” professional judges who point out all the flaws without too much embarrassment. They do not want to offend. They just want to show that they need a real diamond, a nugget, which still needs to be looked for .

And who are the judges?

The most important question that worries many. After all, the fate of the beautiful woman acting on the stage largely depends on the mood, on the preferences of the judges. Of course, to assess the external, this one needs a “trained” male look. For this, Igor Vernik was invited. To assess the professional qualities of the speakers, a trained eye will be used, an amazing flair of Konstantin Meladze. Well, the third in the judiciary will be the one that went through all the hardships of the life of a professional performer and was able to prove to the whole world that it was worth something. This is Nadezhda Meyher (Granovskaya), Vera Brezhneva herself, Anna Sedokova, Albina Dzhanabaeva, as well as Alena Vinnitskaya.

Not so long ago, these women enjoyed wildly popular among the male half of the population, were sexy, beautiful, vocalists . But today the years have taken their toll. Some left for personal reasons (marriage, pregnancy and childbirth), some decided to change the scope of their activities, some . Why say that: each had their own reasons for telling Konstantin Meladze one decisive “no” at one point. Really with the same courage, they will say no to now? In their hands are the lives of thousands and millions of people dreaming of fame, beauty and fame, popularity among men .

ALL COMPOSITIONS OF THE VIAGRA GROUP

The story of the popular female team of the Viagra group began on September 3, 2000. It was then that the premiere of the debut clip “Attempt No. 5” took place on the air of the Ukrainian television company Biz-TV, which instantly flew to the top positions of the main charts. After this, the group more than once experienced rapid ups and downs, repeatedly changed its composition, its soloists began successful solo careers and gave birth to children. But, despite this, the popularity of Viagra did not decrease.

In 1999, Ukrainian businessman and owner of Biz-TV channel Vladimir Kostyuk, inspired by the success of the Russian “Brilliant” and Western “Spice Girls”, decided to launch a similar Ukrainian project. He invited Konstantin Meladze to the role of music producer. One of the first approved soloists was Alena Vinnitskaya, who previously worked as a host on Biz-TV. Thanks to the casting, Meladze and Kostyuk found two more girls: Marina Modina and Yulia Miroshnichenko. But in the process of working on “Attempt No. 5”, it was decided to leave Alain alone and temporarily freeze the project, continuing the search for suitable soloists.

When Nadezhda Granovskaya appeared on the horizon, the trio was decided to be re-qualified as a duet, in which the role of the leading soloist went to Vinnitsa. Originally, the group was to be called “Silver.” Regarding where the name “Viagra” came from, there are several versions. According to one of them, VIA is a vocal and instrumental ensemble, “gra” in Ukrainian means a game. Some believe that “Viagra” is a derivative of the surnames and names of vocalists (Vi-Vinnitskaya, A-Alena, Gra-Granovskaya). But the first thing that comes to my mind when I heard the word “Viagra” is a famous drug that enhances male potency. By the way, introducing V.I.A. “Gra” in the English-language music market, Sony Music executives received a pre-trial claim from tablet manufacturers. Therefore, in the west the group is known under the pseudonym Nu Virgos.

Initially, critics considered Viagra a group of one hit and prophesied its short-lived fame. But the next dance song “Attempt No. 5”, “Embrace Me”, further intensified interest around the collective. Girls were invited to interviews and concerts. By the end of 2000, their repertoire totaled already seven songs. The first solo concert of the group took place on the stage of the Ice Palace in Dnepropetrovsk on December 20. It was attended by 4 thousand spectators.

During its work, the group changed 16 compositions. Almost all former soloists connected life with show business and were able to build successful careers.

  • Alena Vinnitskaya;

Alena (Olga) Vinnitskaya was born on December 27, 1974 in the capital of Ukraine. Almost immediately after graduation, she met her future husband, who at that time performed in the Seven collective. Over time, they together changed the name of the group to “The Last Unicorn”, where Vinnitskaya became the author of music and the words of the songs they performed.

From 1997 to 2000, Vinnitskaya successfully combined the professions of a VJ and a reporter on music television channels and a DJ on radio stations. On Biz-TV, she hosted The Ukrainian Twenty, which was also broadcast on the Russian MTV. It was there that she met Kostyuk, who also invited her to the Viagra group. With the participation of Alena, they shot 6 clips, released their debut album, starred in two musicals and recorded several non-album songs.

January 20, 2003 the girl left the team and began a solo career, performing songs in the style of pop rock. Among the notable works in this field, it is worth highlighting the song “Let’s forget everything”, which became a hit in all Ukrainian charts, and the single “Exhausted Heart”, which made it possible to feel the full depth of Alyona’s author’s lyrics.

In 2004, Alena performed with the world-famous band The Cardigans at the Sports Palace, Ukraine’s largest concert venue, and released her first album, Dawn. The girl is still actively performing, recording new albums and conducting active social activities.

Nadia Meyher was born in the village of Zbruchovka on April 10, 1982. From the age of 11 she attended a folk dance group and performed at various events. After school, Nadezhda entered the faculty of choreography and musical dance at the Khmelnitsky Pedagogical School.

In 2000, the girl was cast in the Viagra group, but already in 2002 she left the team due to pregnancy. However, maternity leave did not last long, and a month after giving birth, Nadia returned to the group. The second departure of Hope occurred in 2006. Then she decided to start a career as a TV presenter.

But in 2009 Granovskaya again became a member of the team. In 2013, she was part of the jury of the reality show “I Want to Viagra.” In 2016, Nadezhda presented her performance “Historia de Un Amor” and opened a boutique “Meiher by Meiher” in Kiev, in which she presented her collection of clothes.

After leaving the decree of Nadezhda Granovskaya, the producers decided to turn the duo into a trio and announced an urgent casting. So the new composition of the Viagra group was replenished by Tatyana Naynik and Anna Sedokova.

Tanya was born in St. Petersburg on April 6, 1978.

Olya loves our smaller brothers very much, therefore she doesn’t eat animal meat, and absolutely not at all. An ardent opponent of a natural fly. Of course it has pages on Instagram and VK. Before becoming a new soloist of the group, Viagra Olya tried to get into other musical projects, but not so successfully.

The new composition of the Viagra group since September 2018:

  • Olya Megan
  • Ulyana Sinetskaya

Ulyana Sinetskaya

Ulyana Sinetskaya was born in the spring of March 29, 1995, in the very small Yugorsk, which is located in the Tyumen region, its northern part. From the age of five she attended a music school, even then the girl’s parents recognized her talent for music.

Since 2014, the aspiring singer began her career growth.

So the young age, the girl is only 23 years old, is not a hindrance to the new soloist, Ulyana Sinetskaya started work right off the bat, we look forward to her success.

Hits of the Viagra Group

Since the successful start of the project, thanks to the compositions “Attempt No. 5”, “Bomb”, “I Will Not Return”, the group managed to record six studio albums:

  • In 2001 – “Attempt No. 5”;
  • In 2003 – “Stop! Filmed” (Russian and Japanese editions);
  • In 2003 – “Biology”;
  • In 2004 – “Stop! Stop! Stop! ”(International edition);
  • In 2007 – “L.M.L.”

In 2002, the group presented new clips “Stop! Stop! Stop! ”And“ Good morning ”. In the second video, fans again saw the band Nadezhda Granovskaya who had left before that, which led to a new surge in the popularity of Viagra.

In February 2003, a video was released for “Do not leave me, love.” The composition has reached the top of many charts and is still considered in the history of the group one of the best. It was the time of the “golden line-up” and his successful duets with Valery Meladze. Hits were released one after another: “The Ocean and Three Rivers,” “Attraction No More,” “Kill My Friend,” “Diamonds.”

Then the team began to storm. The “Golden Composition” disintegrated. Participants constantly replaced each other. But the compositions “Flower and Knife” recorded with Olga Koryakina, “Kisses” – with Meseda Bagaudinova, “Antigeysha”, “Crazy” – with Tatyana Kotova, “Day Without You”, “Fuck you,” “Hello, Mom!” – with Eva Bushmina did not allow the group to lose the status of the sexiest pop trio of Russian pop.

The new composition of Viagra, like most of the previous ones, has been criticized more than once. Many were sure that the success of the previous participants could not be repeated. Despite this, the group confidently wins the top lines of the charts, receives music awards, and their songs “Truce”, “Oxygen”, “I Have Another”, “So Strong” do not stop broadcasting on radio stations. Over time, the band’s repertoire included 17 past hits with modified arrangements.
