Arciom Lukjanienka and Ksienija Žuk are Navi and they’re ready to fire for Belarus at Eurovision 2017.
Startlingly, the 2017 Eurovision competition seems to have crept up on us; the competition kicks off tomorrow night European time with the first of the semi finals.
But we’ll have to wait to Thursday evening European time to catch the Belarusians in action as part of the second semi final.
Will their single ‘Story Of My Life’ (well, ‘Historyja majho žyccia’) have what it takes to succeed in 2017?
Belarus hasn’t had an easy ride in Eurovision play. This year will mark only the 17th occasion they’ve competed. But in all but four of those years, they’ve failed to make it past the semi finals phase.
Also working against them this year is the fact that for the first time ever, they’ll perform their song in their native tongue.
Arciom wrote the track and we’re quite liking Ksienija’s vocals. However, apart from what feels like a repetitive sing-a-long style chorus, it’s nothing too special.
Listen very carefully… they shall sing this only one. Quatre points.
