For the first time, Eurovision fans will be able to follow audition before the Belarusian National Final. Today and tomorrow from 11:00 till 16:00 CET (12:00-17:00 local time) broadcaster’s website tvr.by will stream auditions live from 600 metrov studio in Minsk where participants will present their songs to jury and fight for the spot in the final which will be held on 26th December. National Belarusian Artist Aleksandar Tihanovich will be head of jury. Jury will listen to 100 songs (50 today and 50 tomorrow) and will decide who should qualify to the National Final.
Official announcement will take place in “Panorama” on 5th of December at 20:00 CET (21:00 local time). Not more than 15 artists will manage to perform in the final.
As we informed before many popular names fight for the right to take part in the National Final i.e. Milki (girlband created by Alexander Rybak), Gunesh, Uzari & Maymuna, Misters, Inzhir, Aura, Napoli or even “zombie-band” Sweet Brains.
In 2014 Belarus was represented by singer Teo with his song “Cheesecake”. He managed to qualify to the final and reached 16th place, the same as Alyona Lanskaya did one year before.
