According to BTRC we will find out who will represent Belarus in the next Eurovision Song Contest on the 28th of February, day on which the country’s national final will take place . However this year the final outcome will not be determined only by a jury, as last year, but the final winner and next Belarusian representative will be selected 50% by a jury and 50% by the public vote.
Belarus has been participating in Eurovision since 2004 without missing an edition since its first participation. Its best placing so far was in 2007 with Dmitry Koldun and Work Your Magic which finished 6th in the final. This remains Belarus’ only top ten placement. Belarus also qualified for the final in 2010, 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2019. On the other hand its worst result came in 2006 withPolina Smolova who finished 22nd in the semi final.
