As it turned out, Nikolai Baskov does not quite know the voices of famous singers. On the set of the project “Show Styles” Nikolay Baskov commented on the dance number performed by Mikhail Bashkatov and Daria Melnikova.
They danced to the song "Good-bye, our sweet Bear." To the surprise of all those present, Nikolai found fault with the song. As he said, this performance of the song is inept and he is outraged how it was possible to broadcast a song in such a non-professional performance.
Leading Maxim Galkin had to interrupt a friend, and report that he was singing a song "ineptly," as Baskov put it. Nikolai Baskov was very embarrassed and asked to re-record the episode with his speech. However, no one did, and this shame of a famous singer was seen by millions of viewers.
