Biography

Polina Sergeyevna Gagarina (Russian: Поли́на Серге́евна Гага́рина, [pɐˈlʲinə sʲɪrˈɡʲejɪvnə ɡɐˈɡarʲɪnə], born 27 March 1987) is a Russian singer, songwriter and actress. She represented Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with "A Million Voices" where she finished second, with 303 points earned by jury. Gagarina also participated in the Chinese reality-competition Singer, where she was one of the finalists.

Life and career

Gagarina was born in Moscow, but spent most of her youth in Greece. Her mother was a ballet dancer. In 1993, Gagarina's father died and her mother decided to move the family back to Russia, but they soon moved back to Greece and settled in Athens. After completing her education, she moved to Saratov to live with her grandmother. She is fluent in Russian, Greek and English.

2003–07: Poprosi u oblakov

In 2003, Gagarina competed in season two of Star Factory, a Russian reality singing competition. She performed several songs by Maxim Fadeev and went on to win the show, but refused to work with Fadeev after her victory. After winning Star Factory, Gagarina was invited to perform in the group Playgirls. The group received a recording contract with ARS Records, but ultimately disbanded. In 2005, she performed at the New Wave competition held in Jūrmala, Latvia and placed third. She later released the singles "Kolybelnaya", "Morning", "Ya tvoya", "Pomnyu", and "Ya tebya ne proshchu nikogda". Her debut album Poprosi u oblakov was released in 2007.

2008–12: O sebe

In 2008, Gagarina released the single "Komu, zachem?", a duet with Russian singer Irina Dubtsova. In March 2010, her second studio album О себе was released. In 2012, Gagarina started to collaborate with Russian-Georgian producer Konstantin Meladze. With Meladze she recorded four singles: "Spektakl okonchen" ("The Play Is Over"), "Net" ("No"), "Navek" ("Forever") and "Shagay" ("Stride").

2015–present: Eurovision Song Contest and Singer 2019

On 9 March 2015, it was revealed that Gagarina would represent Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Gagarina placed second in the Grand Final of Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with the song "A Million Voices". On 25 July 2015, she performed "A Million Voices" as the closing song of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying draw in Saint Petersburg, shown on television worldwide. She was a coach in the Russian reality talent show The Voice in seasons four and five.

On 1 February 2019, it was revealed that Gagarina participated in Chinese' reality competition Singer 2019, also known as the seventh season of I Am a Singer, entering under the substitute singer status on the fourth week. Gagarina was the third European contestant to participate after season six's winner Jessie J (United Kingdom) and initial singer Kristian Kostov (Bulgaria). Gagarina achieved three top placements on the first five-week of shows before finishing last in her sixth show, which was the Challenge round; Gagarina would have been eliminated per the competition rules but was instead saved after the Challenger of the week was unsuccessful in beating a majority (4) of the seven singers. On 22 March, she was temporarily given bye after reporting to the media that she sustained a muscle injury during rehearsals. Despite her injury, she eventually ranked in the top three during the following week's round, called the Breakout round (a round featured previously eliminated contestants, substitute singers, except withdrawn and non-competing singers), where she became one of the seven finalists eligible for the title of Singer 2019 winner. In the first round of the final, she sung We Are the World alongside Kazakhstan's Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018 participant Daneliya Tuleshova, Filipino-Canadian singer Darren Espanto and Chinese rapper Air Ari. She was, however, was knocked out that round.

For season eight of the Voice in 2019, she rejoined as a coach. Also, for the first time on The Voice Kids, she was a coach for season seven.

Personal life

On 25 August 2007, Gagarina married Russian actor Pyotr Kislov. She gave birth to their son, Andrey, on 14 October 2007. They divorced on 31 March 2010. She married photographer Dmitry Iskhakov on 9 September 2014. In April 2017, Polina gave birth to their daughter, Mia.
