We’ve got some important, breaking news on the Alex Ovechkin beat tonight. Margarita Glukhova of ITAR-TASS is reporting that the Russian machine has been named head judge for Miss Moscow 2014.
Ovechkin, 24 hours removed from winning his fourth Maurice “Rocket” Richard trophy, will judge the ladies on their talent and their swimsuits.
Also, if I’m reading this right, Ovechkin will judge a dance number. And if there’s anyone who knows dance, it’s Ovi.
Below, Igor Kleyner has translated the entire press release. Congratulations, Ovi, on this important and distinguished honor.
Alexander Ovechkin will be the head of the judging panel for the Miss Moscow 2014 Festival of Talent and Beauty.
This year, the main theme of the contest is “Moscow is the best city on Earth”. Twenty eight young ladies who are residents of Moscow will participate.
The show will kick off with dance to a Moscow-themed song, and then the girls will come out on stage to present their own images of young Muscovites – students, athletes, actresses. Then there will be another dance number by participants, with another Moscow themed song. Aside from the talent competition, the judging panel will also evaluate contestant’s swimsuit appearance.
Various Russian and foreign pop stars, including the band Secret Service and Charlie Armstrong – a grandson of famous American jazz icon Louis Armstrong.
A former president of the Russian Olympic Committee, a member of State Duma, a television presenter and an actress will join Alex Ovechkin on the panel for the contest.
