The final will be hosted by TEO, who represented Belarus in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, and his wife Olga Ryzhikova. The show will be broadcast live from the 600 metres studios in Minsk. Belarusian public broadcaster BTRC is promising a spectacular event, including a large 43 x 5 square metres LED screen set at the stage background.
A great effort has been taken to produce "postcards" for all ten entries - just like in the Eurovision Song Contest itself! There is a Youtube playlist that includes all of them, and you can watch one of them right below.
The decision who will represent Belarus in Stockholm will be taken solely by Televoting. The best Belarusian placing so far in a Eurovision Song Contest Final was Koldun's 6th place in 2007 with Work Your Magic. Will this year's representative top that result? We shall find out in May!Gallery: Belarus: Meet the finalists
