Caffe` Latte` previews…
As countries begin selecting their entries for the Eurovision Song Contest in May, this blog will look back on the stats and the best from each of the 43 participating nations.
Like Albania, Belarus joined the Eurovision family in 2004 and has participated every year since then. The latter's best finish was the #6 ranking awarded to "Work Your Magic" by Dmitry Koldun in 2007. Technical wizardry was put to great effect in 2016 but this sadly did not help Ivan's "Help You Fly" progress further than the 2nd Semi-Final.
The Belarusian entry for 2017 will be performed by NAVI (which ironically is Ivan backwards!). The duo will sing "Historyja Majho Zyccia" in their national tongue.
BEST ENTRY EVER:
SOLAYOH Alyona Lanskaya
HELP YOU FLY Ivan
