Belarusian National Final is awful (as always). Most of the songs are dated as hell or uber-cheesy, there aren't even a handful of pretty looking girls & boys to distract from the abysmal quality of the songs.
Alekseev's not used to singing in English hence he butchers the song. Our selection is decided behind the scenes by the music biz executives most of the time, so they are most likely going to settle for cutting their losses with the help of Alekseev covering all the expenditures by himself and his team.
The only other potential winners might be Shuma (they're similar to last year's interval act, ONUKA) and Gunesh (8th time in the National Final, has a relatively significant name in the local showbiz scene). But their chances are very slim.
