Requirements for project participants and their compositions remain the same. Age of the applicant should be 16 and older. Live performance must have the duration not more than 3 minutes. The voting rules have changed. The overall result of each participant will consist of 8 ratings, 7 of them are the marks of the jury and 1 point will come from the audience.
The project will be carried out in three stages – accepting applications, auditions and the final. The final show will be attended by only 15 of the best performances. The names of the jury will be kept secret up to the live broadcast of the finals, so that no one can influence their assessment.
The European Broadcasting Union does not oblige member states to hold open national selections. Nevertheless, BTRC will use a national final format, which has helped many local artists to introduce themselves to the country and Europe. The jury will select the finalists until December 5, and the representative of Belarus at the contest will have been selected no later than January 23rd!
