Belarus
Uzari & Maimuna - Time







QUOTE
With the deadline for submission of songs closely approaching in Belarus, it has now been revealed that the final will take place on 26 December. Once all songs are received, a special jury will be in charge of filtering the 15 lucky performers that will make it to the stage in Minsk to follow the steps of Teo.

In an earlier report, we informed that Belarus are this year adopting the Maltese jury format. Seven jurors will be responsible for most of the vote with the televote effectively becoming the “eighth juror”. In case of a tie break the Jury vote will be given higher weighting. It had also been reported that a list of 15 performers and 30 songs would make it to the final, so this would logically mean that each of the announced contestants would perform two songs each.

With Belarus moving their national final to December as opposed to the end of January, as it was expected, by the time 2015 comes we will already know four of the participants that in May will be fighting to succeed Conchita in the Eurovision throne.

Wiwibloggs seem to think there's a chance that the song below has been entered by previous representative Alyona Lanskaya. It's written by 2014 representative Teo and is the perfect length - I think it has lots of potential if it is in the national final!

Just came across this on Tumblr and instantly thought it would be perfect for Eurovision without knowing it was a finalist here! It simply MUST WIN

Ooh yes I can get on board with this! Seeing as they've adopted the Maltese way of voting, surely they will encourage the juries to vote for the band put together by a Eurovision winner? They won't want to waste that chance surely?



There they are live at the auditions.

I'm a sucker for some Soviet Accordian! I echo the previous sentiments, this has to win!

Am I the only one who isn't so taken by this Milki band. sad.gif It's good but not THAT good. If Olga un Ligo (Eurovision landslide winner that never was. still WEEPING that it actually won its semifinal too and thrashed 2 of the final Top 3 whores including Cake to Vomit. f***ing juries! did they CHANGE them from semi to the final?! 2nd in the semis and 9th in the final. what a fix) couldn't make it to the Top 3 in the NF then I doubt Belarus will choose something that could actually stand a chance in the contest.

Latvia and Belarus aren't exactly known for similar selection procedures...

They are known for picking some of the worst possible songs for Eurovision, however. I think that ties them together very nicely.

Since when were Belarus known for that? Their NFs have hardly been teeming with quality in past years and more often than not their entries are great.

Not really, they've basically used Malta's voting process but made it even more jury-heavy compared to Malta's last month! kink.gif

I've only been watching the pictures so far while watching Coronation Street and EastEnders but I have to say the stage looks very impressive! Just heard a recap and there's quite a few above average songs, but definitely behind Milki!

Televote results seem to be in, Muzzart in 1st and Milki in 2nd! They were my top 2 also judging by the recap. Muzzart also had an advantage of their song being in several commercial breaks kink.gif

Just listening to Muzzart in full now, very catchy instrumental but the vocalist's accent is extremely strong unfortunately - but its definitely something different and in a good way. But of course nothing is decided yet with the jury votes still to come!

Our winners are Uzari & Maimuna with 'Time', which is very similar to Lindsey Stirling in places...

Studio version:



It is decent and has potential with a bit of a revamp! Gets better and better as the song goes along biggrin.gif

Well, they are both female violinists... that is a similarity! laugh.gif

Seriously, sounds pretty decent, the guy is a typical average singer but the girl is good, will be very good if they spruce it up a bit, and it's nice that it isn't immediately showing up as tacky, I could do with Belarus sending an actually good song.

Listening to the reprise on the national final now and I'm very nearly sold on this, it could be quite spectacular on a big LED stage! Just needs a bit more umph in the backing track and it'll be fantastic.

Oh that's not bad all told. I guess it's Belarus so you can never be 100% that this will be what turns up in May.
