Belarus has decided who will be their representative in Eurovision 2019. Following a national final with 10 contenders of the Eurovision ticket, we can now announce that the singer ZENA with the song Like it will fly to Tel Aviv!

The winner tonight was decided 100% by an expert jury. ZENA was awarded the maximum 10 points by 6 of the 7 jury members, while she received yet 9 points from the 7th. Thus, she placed 1st with a total of 69 points. Second place went to BLGN & Mirex, while Sebastian Roos finished third. ZENA will be hoping to bring Belarus back to the Eurovision final, after ALEKSEEV‘s elimination in the first semi-final, last year in Lisbon.

Let’s watch her performance below:

That means we say goodbye to the other 9 acts that reached the final stage of the competition. They had initially beaten 63 other artists who took part in the auditions on 4 February. They are

  • Michael Soul – Humanize
