JoJo's 9 @ 9

Lena and Julia were on JoJo's 9 @ 9 on KIIS-FM radio at 9:00pm PDT on May 29, 2003. t.A.T.u.'s record company supplied the girls with a keyboard, but they just puttered around and didn't really play anything. Lena said they may do a USA concert in the fall, but nothing's officially planned yet. Here are some webcam shots that I captured, in chronological order (click for full size photo):

The A/X beanie Julia was wearing in the last shot was given to her by a fan whose nick is Ogag who met her just moments before at the radio station. You can read the full story of their encounter on their own ZOYNKA web site.

MTV Movie Awards

t.A.T.u. was the closing performance at the MTV Movie Awards which was taped on Saturday, May 31 and will be aired on Thursday, June 5, 2003 at 9:00pm. This was an all-out performance in the grand t.A.T.u. tradition not seen in the USA until now. It was the first time they had dancers in the USA as well as a live band. If you've never seen a live t.A.T.u. performance, then this should not be missed! They started out singing a couple verses of "All The Things She Said" and then continued with "Not Gonna Get Us". Do not miss this performance!  (to be continued)

"Show Me Love" Taping

The girls taped a segment for "Show Me Love" on the Golden Gate bridge on Sunday, June 1. Here are some pictures from surferchickSD's photo album:
