Belarus is sending 24 year old performer Alekseev to Lisbon in the hope that he can triumph at Eurovision 2018.
Like a number of Eurovision entrants over the past few years, Alekseev has history when it comes to TV singing competitions, having participated in the Ukrainian version of ‘The Voice’ back in 2014.
The Ukrainian-born star has won a number of awards and chart accolades in both Ukraine and Belarus since then, but can he win the hearts of the European voting audience with his single ‘Forever’?
Watch as he plays records, drinks a cup of tea, does some freestyle football tricks, push-ups and has a little shave… He’s just like us!
There are elements of Alekseev’s voice that sound eerily similar to that of last year’s winner Salvador Sobral.
And the song itself brims with interesting chord structures. We like it.
