Russian pop star EMIN will perform live at the 2013 Miss Universe pageant on Saturday November 9th together in a superstar line up that includes Aerosmith front man Steven Tyler, pop rock band Panic! At the Disco, and hosted by "Spice Girl" and TV personality Mel B.
The show will be broadcast live from Crocus City Hall in Moscow to an estimated TV audience of 1 billion people, and contestants from 87 countries will take part. The pageant will be broadcast in prime time by many countries including the United States where NBC will show the two hour event from 9pm to 11pm.
EMIN is the only Russian artist to have been invited to perform on the show. He will debut his new single 'In Another Life' together with 'Amor' - the song which features the current Miss Universe - Olivia Culpo. The video for 'Amor' has received more than 4 million views on YouTube in just a few months and is currently play listed on all major stations in Russia. The two singles are now available on iTunes either separately, or as a combined special.
During rehearsals for Miss Universe, EMIN took time out to film a music video for 'In Another Life' - featuring many of the international contestants - and with a surprise ending involving Miss Universe co-owner Donald Trump.
Following Miss Universe, EMIN will put the finishing touches to his upcoming CD which is scheduled for release through Warner/ADA in February 2014. He will support the international release of the album with appearances and performances in Europe, South America and the United States.
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
