The end of January saw some developments in one of Eurovision’s most hectic selection processes when 49 acts tried to impress the judging panel at Belarus’ iconic live auditions. In the end, the jury selected just 12 acts to compete in the live TV final.

Now, as the 28 February selection show fast approaches, we’re asking who should win the final and represent Belarus in Rotterdam?

Listen to all 12 audition performances below. Note, many are demo versions. Also, the staging is basic, so expect everything to be upgraded in the grand final.

Once you’ve checked out the full dozen, have your say in our poll. Vote for whoever and as many acts as you want but remember: you can only vote once.

I would just go with Napoli or Angelika.
No song from this selection is qualifying so you might as well reward someone who, through corrupt juries or questionable televotes, were robbed in a previous year.

Sorry but the biggest crime of this year is Keysi – Chili Pepper. Such a cool and current beat and you get these “lovely” lyrics to accompany it.

Get to know me step by stepper
You’re a danger, still a stranger
I’m like a fire like that chilli pepper.

Is this song straight out of Google translate?

I am sad for Belarus and the public and the fandom. The only songs I found palatable are Rocky Road and Fire. I would guest that one of these might win. Rocky Road seems solid and conveys familiarity and calm and an “all good” feeling. I like it the most. “Fire” on the other hand is a pretty classical ballad peformed by a pretty good looking singer. But less quality than Rocky Road.

Off topic yet near: the backings had some notepads in a few clips. Why oh why?

KeySi – “Chili Pepper” is ZENA like it 2.0 . At least send something original this year like Chakras.

Judging by the poll though, I think I might be the only one!

Unfortunately, whatever Belarus picks this year, they’ll likely be in my bottom 5. I’d go with Angelika Pushnova. Her song might be generic and bland, but at least she sells it on stage and can sing in English. Even so, she holds a distinction of being my lowest rated NF winner in 3 years.
Others are either butchering the English language to the point of not being intelligible, have bad songs or both. Napoli has hit the rock bottom with that breathy and repetitive song with appropriation costumes.
Overall, I’m rating this selection with a No/10. 🙁

Una
Guest

🙁 at least Belarus tried harder than France.

Colin
Guest

I’d like to argue that one, but I can’t. There are several songs here I consider worse than the French one, but at least there is variety and public input. Belarus at least *tries*. France is just lazy.

Why showing us these horrible selection videos, when literally EVERY song’s proper studio/revamped/remixed version has been released? Also, so many artists’ names have changed, like Anastasiya Razvadovskaya now performs as Nastasea, and so one.
Please update.

Anita Mann
Guest

It’s Yan Yarosh and Sasha Zaharik (no k in the middle) if you search on Spotify and iTunes.
Come on, this half-concerned update for Belarus is embarrassing… just like previous years there is a lack of PROPER Belarussian news!

That’s not funny, that’s called “voting based on the song and performance”.

Angelika Pushnova. Songs not bad and she has great stage presence and with a revamp Belarus could definitely qualify

Chakras (some local flavour) or Keysi (urban song following last year qualification with something similar). But I don’t know if they would even qualify. Also only two or three weeks remain until deadline. Aren’t they supposed to revamp the winner?

The only song I enjoyed was “Rocky Road”. “Fire” started somewhat promising yet that was canceled by the ATROCIOUS performance by those backing vocalists.

Milan
Guest

I’d say there was nothing wrong with the backing vocalists – they hit every note, it’s just that the chords were at some moments a bit strange and unexpected, but that’s how they were written. And of course, the vocalists looked a little ridiculous reading their notes from a sheet.

Based solely on these auditions, meaning my favorites probably well change based on final performances(though by then we’ll have a winner) these are my current favs(no particular order):
Angelika Pushnova
AURA
Group CHAKRAS
KeySi
VAL
Only hated two entrys, the rest are okay but these are just auditions so there’s tons of improvements to be done I’m sure. As always I wish the best for all participants
