As a violinist, singer and music producer, Svet is now one of the few if not the only one in the industry with such horizon. “I love the fact that I can elevate music to the next level. It gives me a great feeling watching people enjoying and dancing to my music”.

Svet was one of the Standby Acts in the Vegas Round. He was sorted into the "Rappers" category. His performance in Episode 713 consisted of rapping and playing the violin in a hip-hop style. His audition was not strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals, eliminating him from the competition along with Rob Hayes and The Rhymatist.
