    In the qualifying rounds participants appear before the judges and an audience to demonstrate their talent, and from there are either rejected by the judges or moved on to the next round. In the 1st season each judge had the ability to call a halt to the demonstration with a rejection button, if all 3 judges pressed the button, the demonstration was interrupted and the participant rejected. In the 2nd this was removed and each participant could perform their full demonstration, after which each judges voted «yes» or «no», with the majority ruling and the head judge acting as tie-breaker.

    Beginning with the 2nd season the semi-finals were removed, participant who passed the qualifying rounds went straight to the final round.

    In the 1st-3rd seasons, the winner of the show received 1,000,000 rubles.

    In the 4th season the winner of the show received 10,000,000 rubles.

    From the middle of the 4th season (from October 5 to December 29, 2009) per week from network «Eldorado» played out cash prizes among viewers.

    In the 5th season the winner of the show received 1,000,000 rubles, 1 kg of gold and a contract with the Moscow Circus.

    In the 6th season, the show underwent a major change. Firstly the name was changed to «Minute of Fame - Dreams Come True». At the end of each qualifying round the jury picks 1 act, not necessarily one who passed on to audience voting, and gives them a choice: either have their dream fulfilled, or be entered directly into the finals without requiring the audience to vote them there, meaning they still have a chance to win the 1,000,000 rubles prizel. Second, the participants were given mentors. Carmen Rust and Edgard Zapashny, then Svetlana Druzhinina and Igor Zhizhikin from the 9th qualifying round onwards, would instruct participants in circus genres, and Anastasia Zavorotnyuk and Yegor Druzhinin would mentor those in other artistic genres.

    In the 7th season of the show on the new scenario, part of the participants' «Minute of Fame» now is not removed in the studio and outdoors. This time, the organizers decided that participants must represent Russia, and therefore the motto of the project at this time is «Minute of Fame is sweeping the country». The participation of foreign visitors is now excluded. In honor of the five-year anniversary of the producers even changed the standard rules of the program. Now the film crew travels to cities in Russia and filmes unique acts right away from the contestants who for various reasons can't come to Moscow. By new rules it's for such numbers jury does not vote. Vote for them audience in the hall. In the semifinal get those participants for whom the vote of at least 15% of the audience in the studio. There is also no mentors, who had previously supported the contestants.

    In the 8th Olympic season participants compete for the right to participate in the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi and to win one million rubles. In this season in the chair member of the jury, along with the usual three judges in each issue necessarily representative of the sport was alone, as this is Olympic season. Also in the VIP-box in each issue were present different guests with their exclusive gifts that they in the end of the tour participant were presented to get noticed. In the semifinals, participants fought a duel in the end only one of the duel taking place in the final, and the rest are eliminated. The finale was divided in two parts: in the first, participants fought for a million rubles, while the second are for participating in the opening ceremony of XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

    In 9th Anniversary season the rules has changed. To advance the next rounds, the contestant have to get no less than three jury's «yes». If the contestant gets two «yes» and two «no», his detiny is in his own hands, he ought to toss a «coin of fame». If the side of a coin is the white, then the contestant won't leave the game, bu if it is the red, he is eliminated. Top prize is 5,000,000 rubles.
