Belarus and the Eurovision Song Contest
The Belarussian broadcaster BT chose for the same selection method as in 2005. 15 participants took part in a national final on 10th February. The best three proceeded to an internal selection. A few weeks later, it was announced that Polina Smolova would represent Belarus at the 51st Eurovision Song Contest with Mum. Although the song appeared under several titles already, Mum is the official song title.

Polina Smolova
26-year old Polina Smolova started her musical carreer in several bands and took piano lessons. In 2004, she took part in the first ever Belarussian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and came 8th. Last year, she was the runner-up behind Angelica Agurbash.

Mum
All I tell you, mum
My heart 's on fire!
Say me no more
That he's a finished liar.
I feel so safe, 'cause I know he's good
The guys before him were a kind of junk food.

Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, mum.
Can't you see how I miss him?
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma
Yes, I need only him
Ma, ma, ma, ma, ma, ma
Can't you see how I love him?
So by now my doubts are over,
I know for sure that he's my dream.

All I beg, oh, ma
Just some attention.
We got like strangers
Due to the tension.
Just remember yourself in your teens
And all years after � here is what it means.

Never tell me, ma
He is too dangerous
Love can beat us down, but it can make us fly.
Let me love him mum, don't sigh, please don't cry�
Be my friend, oh, mum.
My heart can not lie!
