Alyona is rising fast in our poll

Alyona Lanskaya is one of the few Eurovision contestants to have entered and won her national selection, only to be disqualified and then win again the following year.

She also explained why she relates to the sexy, sultry sound of her Eurovision number “Solayoh”. You can watch our full interview below.

The Belarus team will guarantee that we are… Read more »
