The nation will be holding a public national selection, and the competition has now progressed through the audition stage in order to find 10 finalists who will compete for the opportunity to represent Belarus on home soil. A panel of jurors was used to select the finalists out of a total of 62 submissions of varying genres.
Here are the finalists:
- Artem Skorol – Ulybnis

The national selection will be held on the 31st of August. The winner will be decided with 50% televote and 50% jury vote and will follow in the footsteps of last year’s competitor Helena Meraai who finished in 5th place with her song I Am The One.
