If there’s an example of successfully copying and pasting from one’s national selection, then it’s definitely Belarus. This afternoon Alexander Minyonok brought the same bold, brash and bright staging to Malta, delivering a vibrant and urban performance of “Music of my Victories”. Part Eric Saade, part Justin Bieber, he had major swagger as he sang about pop, funk and jazz, and as his backing dancers performed all sorts of stunts. He managed to hold his voice throughout — no easy feat in a number based around dance. As in Minsk, Alex once again calls on his hoverboard — and this time his dancers join him on their own devices. This song requires a big stage to shine and they finally have it.

Great he has improved his staging wich was good back then. And he is allowed to sing while dancing during all the song. This is one of my favs along Albania, Cyprus and FYROM.

He is a natural. Being one of the only two boys this year, this stands out even more. Very confident performance, good staging, fun song… I like it a lot.

Y’all are sleeping on this guy. Infectiously catchy song + great vocals + energetic performance = votes upon votes. I would’ve loved this as a kid, and I still do now. Much better than certain other overrated snoozefests!

, Musyka moih pobed should be translated as “The music of my victories”

Quite predictable performance… I think he looks too confident on stage. Olga should have been in Valletta rehearsing now, not him!
