The Belarusian broadcaster BTRC has completed a round of open auditions for the acts vying to become the participant to represent Belarus at Eurovision in 2017. There were 67 songs entered into the competition, and 13 were selected to perform in the national final which will be held on January 25th.
Out of the list, there are some usual names, including Napoli and Nuteki, who have participated in the national final numerous times in recent years.
The final will take place on the 25th of January, and we suspect it will be in a similar format to previous years. The act which receives the most votes with both public and jury votes included will become the next Belarusian participant at Eurovision in Kyiv.
