Update on November 13 at 14:10: We have reached out to the President’s office. They tell us that Belarusian News has it wrong, and that the President did not see the Belarusian performance.
Malta’s president Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca will vote for Nadezhda Misyakova and her song “Sokal” at the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Marsa this Saturday, according to a report from Belarusian News.
The head of the Belarusian delegation Olga Salamakha reportedly said that the Maltese president visited Nadezhda’s rehearsal and subsequently told Nadezhda and her team that they will receive her votes this Saturday.
This is great news for Nadezhda, as her running order draw of first is a little daunting considering that she may be forgotten by subsequent acts, such as Cyprus, Slovenia, Malta and The Netherlands.
Naturally the Maltese people will not be offended: you can’t vote for your own country!
You can watch Nadezhda’s first rehearsal of “Sokal” below.
So what do you think? Is this a huge boost to Nadezhda’s confidence? Let us know.
