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.
