On 21 August Ruslan Aslanov cruised to victory in Belarus with his Junior Eurovision 2015 song “Volshebstvo”. He secured the highest possible points from both the jury and televoters, leaving the nine other contestants trembling with his powerful vocals and knack for drama.
But winning at home isn’t the same as winning abroad, so young Ruslan headed back to the studio following his win. As always, Belarus has remastered the song ahead of JESC. Subtle changes in instrumentation help create a magical mood and a new English-language verse makes the song more accessible to the masses. According to OGAE Belarus, this will be the version sung during Junior Eurovision 2015.
Which of the two versions is better according to you? Let us know in the comment box below!

Ordinary people would never recognize a good entry in front of them.
This song is 100% AMAZING! I’m doubting we’ll have something better than this in Sofia – Anna Trincher’s song is only another overrated Ukrainian ghost, Russia’s and Netherlands’ songs are good but lack some power, Slovenia’s is close and Albania’s is a plain disaster.
At this point, the only singer that could go further than Ruslan’s vocal power is Destiny from Malta – but what will the audience think of a soul diva of such a young age? I’m dying to find out 😀
What is in English? I couldn’t hear anything like that.
The song is pretty good however I doubt it will be enough for first place.
This is a very good song. The only “problem” is that, I feel like this entry tries too hard to sound cool. I don’t know if this is due to the song or the singer.
This is a song where my opinion could go up or down after I see the lyrics and find out what the song is all about. Right now, I’m a little confused about what this song is supposed to be.
I’d put these as my top 4:
I couldn’t hear the English words at all it was like woah oh uh but the song is pretty good.
Cool! Can’t wait for a music video! 🙂
Painted corpse is still a corpse.
english part sounds different. Bad idea
I can’t decide between Belarus and Ukraine, they are both marvellous. But please Belarus, drop the english part…
The original version was cleaner. But. Still my favorite entry thus far.
For me first version.
Too many woahs/ohs
I also have no idea what he is saying in the English part (and so disappointed they felt the need to add it)
Still my 2nd just over Russia (but way behind Ukraine)
