Belarus has now selected the song that will represent the nation at Eurovision 2012. It’s called All My Life and sung by Alena Lanskaya.
Decided upon by 50/50 jury and tele-vote, the song is testament to the fact that most non-English singers should not sing in English. Particularly when the song in question has few, if any, redeeming features. See The Eurovision Song Reviews.
Since last posting, a total of thirteen national songs have been announced. The only ones amongst them not to have been heard as yet are Rambo Amadeus singing Euro Neuro (Montenegro), Izabo singing Time (Israel) and Kaliopi singing Black and White (Macedonia).
However, more national finals are due this week. Germany makes its final decision on February 16th, while Latvia, Croatia, Ukraine and Italy decide upon their songs on the 18th. Georgia has just announced its final will be on the 19th. So, another busy weekend of Eurovision news to come.
Still no word from the UK about its plans and all is quiet in the San Marino and Greek camps. If memory serves me well, decisions will have to be made within the next six weeks.
Until the weekendThe Latest Eurovision Downloads
