BELARUS 2013: ALYONA LANSKAYA TO MALMOE
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
Alyona (Alena) Lanskaya
bought won the Belarusian national final Eurofest 2013 which took place last night in Minsk. Weirdly she won again both televoting and jury voting and weirdly she was accepted in the submissions by a broadcaster which lost its reputation last year after a thorough investigation against Ms Lanskaya.
In terms of the songs the entries this year were lower in quality than in 2012. Besides Alexei Gross there was nothing interesting for Belarusian viewers to vote anyway. Will Alyona make it to the Eurovision stage or will it be proven that she bought the national selection once again through her boyfriend and manager?
The truth is that last year the stage presentation was good and artistic. This year Alyona had a frozen look throughout the performance and although my personal favourite in 2012 she disappointed me big time this year. Rhythm of Love is the title of the song which for sure will not make it to the final this time.
