Belteleradiocompany (TVR) have announced their ten finalists for the honor to represent Belarus at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Those hoping for the second coming of M I H A I or Daz Sampson will be disappointed as neither rumored candidate made it to the final round after a panel of nine judges winnowed the field of entrants down from 113 to 10.
However, some familiar names did make the cut. NAPOLI, who have made the national selection finals every year since 2014 and even the Polish selection in 2018 made it with “Let It Go.” ZENA, who tried out for Junior Eurovision for Belarus in both 2015 and 2016 yet narrowly lost, also made it through with “Like It.”
- Michael Soul – Humanize
- Eva Kogan – Run
- ZENA – Like it
- Alyona Gorbacheva – Can we dream
- KeyCi – No Love Lost
- Emmanuel Imagbe – Champion
- Sebastian Roos – Never Getting Close
- NAPOLI – Let it go
- Aura – Charavala
- PROvocation – Running Away From The Sun
The allocation draw for the order of performance on the national selection final will be done tomorrow, with the national selection date to be determined shortly, though TVR states that it will be no later than March 8, 2019.
Thankfully for those following the rolling car crash of Daz Sampson’s career, TVR posted all auditions online here.
Anyone in the selection that #YOU find appealing? And be honest, #YOU kind of miss MIHAI and Daz Sampson already. Comment in our forum, below, or on our social media.
