“Sberegu” will be released on May 18th.
Alekseev, the singer who will represent Belarus at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest next week, has announced that his new single “Sberegu” will be released shortly after the contest on 18th May. No other information on his song has been released as of yet, but he teased the release date on his Instagram this afternoon.
Alekseev had his second rehearsal today at the Altice Arena, in which they made no changed to the performance seen at the first rehearsal, and features a dancer who fires a rose through Alekseev’s hand.
Alekseev will represent Belarus at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. He won the Belarusian selection process topping both the public and jury voting. The singer rose to fame having participated in the Voice of Ukraine and has gone on to be a rising star in Ukraine and the CIS. He had originally entered the Ukrainian selection process for Eurovision 2018, before withdrawing and opting to try and represent Belarus instead.
He will be performing “Forever” for Belarus in Lisbon. The song has received approval from the European Broadcasting Union to be able to take part in the contest in May.
Belarus debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 and has made it to the final on four occasions. For the past two years, Belarus has failed to make it through to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Their most recent entrant, IVAN, finished in 12th place in his semi-final and was 21 points away from qualification. Belarus’ best result in the contest came in 2007 when Dmitry Koldun finished 6th in the final with a total of 145 points. In total Belarus has qualified for the Eurovision final five times in fourteen attempts.
