Junior Eurovision 2015 is getting closer every day and news about this year’s national selection shows is coming thick and fast. Yesterday the Belarusian broadcaster BTRC announced that Ilya Volkov and Dmitry Novik will co-host the contest in Minsk — bringing celebrity and some major Eurovision and Junior Eurovision experience to the stage.

We know Ilya as the Belarusian representative at Junior Eurovision 2013, where he earned a very deserved third place with his song “Poy So Mnoy“. One of our in-house jurors praised him this way:

…the boy does not disappoint! He firmly holds onto his high notes while spinning to a demanding dance routine. This is a solid effort. The merits of this entry stand on its own, as well as the test of time. It borrows from the cartoon heroes of the 90s, without churning out a carbon copy.

Last year he was also the co-host of the Belarusian pre-selection.

Dmitry Novik may sound unfamiliar to many Eurovision fans, but in reality you probably know a number of his songs. He’s perhaps best known for writing the crazy lyrics to TEO’s song “Cheesecake” from Eurovision 2014. Coincidentally, Dmitry takes over the role from the singer himself, as TEO hosted the gig previously.

The Belarusian Junior Eurovision national final will take place on Friday 22 August. Stay tuned!

Im bored & its too late at night…But i won’t go to sleep.. So this means more comments.. Ilya is handsome…If a guy like him was in my school he would be too popular with not only the girls but the gay boys there.. I remember that when i was 13 years old in 1999 in my school many girls had a crush on me…I was blond like Ilya…And i remember that because i had similar hair cut with Leonardo Di Caprio & TITANIC was released in cinemas a year earlier in 1998 that compared me with him 😉 hehe… Read more »

Well if Belarus wins in November will make history with being the only country that would had won the Junior EuroVision 3 times! 🙂 Belarus was the first country that won in JESC twice back in 2007…{Georgia that has now won 2 times as wel back in 2007 still was without any victory in JESC 4 the record..} Its just unpredictable…Currently we know only 1 country’s song we still haven’t listened to any of the 13 songs..

you dont have to write a comment saying that you’re gonna write a comment.
And also since when do we have the obligation to comment on everything, especially if it isn’t about the adult-ESC, which is our main point of interests? Just comment on the subject of the article if you are actually interested, everyone. Post as many comments as you want, but keep them on track, and don’t hate one another. Cheers
