Eurovision 2016 Guide: Belarus

Belarus Eurovision 2016

‘I LOVE BELARUS!’ exclaimed the 2011 entry for the country Anastasia Vinnikova. Despite not making through to the final that year, you can’t deny that Belarus always give us some memorable acts in their 12 year history at Eurovision. Who can forget Mr. Cheesecake himself TEO who in 2014 finished in 16th place with his dessert based pop nugget? Then there was of course infectious ‘Solayoh’ from Alyona just the year before that matched TEO’s position. Their best ever result came from Dmitry Koldan who saw Belarus ‘Work Your Magic’ and finish in a solid sixth place in 2007. However with the good comes the bad and Belarus have had their fare share of bad in Eurovision as well. Eight of their twelve Eurovision attempts failed to qualify for the final show and this was the case last year with Uzari and Maimuna’s ‘Time’.

Belarus are back for 2016, so let’s see what gems they have lined up for us, shall we?
