What I've heard is that it's basically a done deal for Alekseev. He's Ukrainian and apparently was trying to represent them until he pulled out and has now gone for Belarus instead...

And I'd be fine with that, I think his song is quite dramatic and I love how it feels like classic Eurovision. The only other one I've checked out is "I Won't Cry" which is a slight bop

the Alekseev song is ripping off a really popular Russian song from like 2003 it's ridiculous. the chorus is almost identical except for the more upbeat vibe. i hope it gets disqualified

We already have a pretty good idea of the potential staging for Forever when it goes to Lisbon (I mean it's basically a done deal at this point)

okay in all fairness that thing would probably be one of the most memorable special effects of the recent years (until something better comes along). especially if he pulls it off vocally being upside down like that

So, at the present time, 8 of the finalists have written an open letter threatening to withdraw from the National Final if Alekseev is not disqualified (since, yaknow, it is kinda an English version of a pretty big hit in Eastern Europe prior to September the 1st so it is literally the definition of "gaining commercial advantage" which the rule is in place to protect).

Oh Belarus, the country that refuses to stop giving!
