At December 17 the media holding was shooting video greetings for each of the 13 finalists. According to the concept, the greetings use the symbolism of the Belarusian ornaments.
Each finalist has this or that Belarusian symbol and its specific definition.
For example, the symbol of “Earth” will be explored by singer KATTIE.
Vladislav Kurasov will deal with «Wealth”.
And band NAVI with the symbol of “Ancestors”.
We selected symbols for the finalists in accordance with the song and its contents, as well as the image of the performer. This year we auditioned 67 participants, exactly the same number of symbols exist in the Belarusian ornament”, said video director Yuri Yaroshik.
Viewers will be able to see the results during the broadcast of the final, when in pauses of the gala concert the greetings of the performers will be presented.
The show will be held on January 20, 2017 and will take place in the television format of a live concert on Belarus 1 and international satellite TV channel Belarus 24.
The official representative of our country will participate in the international song contest Eurovision-2017 in Kiev (Ukraine). He/she will be selected during the broadcast of the final by televoting and professional jury following the classical formula of 50×50.
BTRC is in charge of the organization of the national qualifying round and further training of the Belarusian performer to the international song contest “Eurovision-2017”, as a member of the European Broadcasting Union.
