Last night in Minsk, the national final to select the Belarusian entry for this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest took place and produced an overwhelming result.
13 year-old Ruslan Aslanov won the vote of both the public and the jury with his song ‘Volshebstvo’ (‘Magic’) to become the pick of Belarus, beating nine other songs that were in contention.
Belarus is one of only two countries to have participated in every Junior contest to date (the other being the Netherlands) and one of only two countries to have won twice (along with Georgia). Now they become the second country to choose and make public their entry for 2015, with Ukraine to follow tonight.
