Taking a careful look at the list we notice that Uzari (Eurovision 2015 representative) didn’t manage to pass in the national final, while Angelica Pushnova with her song Fighting For Love (composed by Molitva’s composer Vladimir Grajic had the same fate.On the other hand, Alekseev will compete in the national final despite the released videos showing him performing his song in Russian before September.
The county’s national final will take place on February 16 in Minsk and the hosts will be TEO( 2014 representative) alongside with Olga Ryzhikova. The final results will be determined by a combination of public and jury voting with a 50% share each, but in case of a tie the winner will be the one that has received the highest points from the jury.
