The bidding Belarusian artists will all perform with backing music or live instruments during today’s auditions, but with no backing vocals, in front of a professional jury; from the 93 acts, no more than 15 will be chosen to take part in the televised national final.

The names of the acts that will move on to the final in March will be revealed later today following the conclusion of the auditions.

BTRC have yet to confirmed when the date of the final will be, but have said it will be before 1 March; then we will know who will follow in the footsteps of Naviband, who made it into the final in the 2017 contest.
