Belarus: Submissions opened for Eurovision 2021

The Belarusian broadcaster has opened the submissions for Eurovision 2021. No word was advanced on how the winner will be chosen

BTRC – the Belarusian broadcaster – is ready for Eurovision 2021. The broadcaster has officially opened the submissions to choose Belarus' next representative after VAL (Belarus 2020) were denied a comeback ticket for this year's contest.

Whoever is interested can apply until the end of the month – 31 January – but this time around, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the acts must send alongside with the audio of their entry, a live performance of the song meaning that Belarus' live auditions won't take place this year.

The rules for the call follow the same trend: singers need to be 16 or older, only one song per singer, no longer than 3 minutes and so on. The main difference is that both Belarusian and non-Belarusian citizens can apply.

The way the entry will be chosen is still being discussed, also due to the pandemic.
