Despite repeated attempts, Belarus has only made it through to the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest four times and in those four times, they’ve not managed to crack the top five.
Suffice to say, the Belarusians will be hoping to turn those fortunes around in 2015, sending duo Uzari and Maimuna along to the first of the semi finals with a song called ‘Time’.
Uzari has been through the national selection process before, but the experience is all new for violinist Maimuna.
We’re really liking this actually. Uzari’s got a superb husky rock-style vocal, which works well in the sumptuous dance/pop production, highlighted by Maimuna’s fiddling.
They’ve only been through to the Grand Final four times in the past, but with a good track, a little luck and a number of votes from their neighbours, 2015 could very well be No.5. Dix points.
