The popularity of Polina Gagarina was brought about by her participation in the First Channel project "Star Factory". At the age of 16, the girl came to the second wave of the reality show and won it. The victory brought Polina popularity, however, to the surprise of producer Maxim Fadeev, the girl refused to sign a contract and record an album. Her decision was largely influenced by what she learned about the "kitchen" of show business and saw behind the scenes. The singer was largely disappointed and was no longer sure that she needed a stage. Nevertheless, Gagarin did not stop playing music.

In the same year, the girl took part in the "New Wave" competition, where she performs with the compositions "It is light in my room", "Je t'aime" and "Lullaby", and took third place. “Firstly, I think the first song was poorly chosen. And secondly, angina prevented me. I went on stage with a temperature of forty! Imagine what it was like to sing in such a state! But I am still glad that I have experience of performing at a serious music competition, ”Polina explains her failure.
