IVAN to present Belarus at International Eurovision-2016 Song Contest in Sweden

For the first time the winner of the national selection round has been determined exclusively by the public phone and SMS voting. The Belarusian performer has already managed to appear at Russian TV channels, winning the Five Stars contest, becoming a super-finalist of the Main Stage project and being given the Producers’ Choice Award in the same project.

Alexander Ivanov’s How to Fly song for the final gala-concert was written by Russian composer Victor Drobysh who patronised the young Belarusian singer in the Main Stage project and later became his producer.

“It’s a great honour for me to represent Belarus at Eurovision. I’m grateful to everyone who voted for me, as well as to my parents and my team who worked with me and believed in me,” notes the winner of the selection round.

The International Eurovision-2016 Song Contest will take place in Stockholm following Swedish Måns Zelmerlöw’s victory in the 2015 contest.

A record-high number of countries, 43, will participate in the contest, held at the Ericsson Globe. The event will consist of two semi-finals on May 10th and 12th while the final will be held on May 14th.

Belarus has to annually go through the semi-final in order to reach the final of the competition. It will become known later in which semi-final our country will perform.
