Belarus: Final between Christmas and New Year

Belarus has decided to hold its national final on the 26th of December, between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Broadcasting company BTVR released this news today. The list of participants will be made public in the beginning of December.

Rumours run high, now that the deadline to send in songs for the Belarussian preselection is tomorrow. Earlier this week, local media speculated about the return of Alyona Lanskaya to the contest. Whether she will in fact become one of the 15 participants in Belarus’ national final, we will know on the 5th of December. After two days of auditions the BTVR jury will then release the final candidate list.
