    Teo, born Yuriy Vashchuk, started his music career at a young age. As a child, he learned how to play the accordion, for which he eventually became the youth international champion after winning a children’s competition.

    Teo was then invited to study at the National Academic Concert Orchestra of Belarus, where he learned to sing, compose, and arrange music. Soon after, he attained a degree in music.

    Teo has gone on to continue to write songs for himself and other artists in Belarus. He also served as co-host on the tv-program “Naperas U Minulae.”

    Teo began his Eurovision journey in 2009 when he competed in the preselection in Belarus as Yury Vashchuk in a duet with Anna Blagova. The duo’s journey ended that year when they failed to qualify for the final.

    Teo returned to the Belarusian preselection in 2011 when he co-composed Alyona Lanskaya’s entry “All my life,” which initially won but was later disqualified on suspicion of vote-rigging. Teo also wrote Alyona Lanskaya’s winning entry in 2012, “The Rhythm of Love,” which was later replaced with the song “Solayoh.”

    In 2014, Teo tried his luck once again by entering his self-written song “Cheesecake,” into the Belarusian selection. His entry won the top points from the jury, despite receiving 3rd place with the public. He tied with Max Lorens & DiDyuLya, but the jury broke the tie and sent Teo to Copenhagen for Belarus.

    Yeah, baby…

     

    Once I gave you one more chance

    You showed me dance

    But I’m not Patrick Swayzee

    You’re not Jennifer Grey

     

    I told this story

    But I’m so sorry

    I lost my train of thought

    When you called me, “My sweet Cheesecake”

     

    I don’t wanna be your toy perhaps today

    I’m not gonna be your boyfriend

    It’s too late

    I look over all the maps trying to escape

    ’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

     

    I don’t wanna be your toy perhaps today

    I’m not gonna be your boyfriend

    It’s too late

    I look over all the maps trying to escape

    ’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

     

    Ohh…yeah…do-do-do-do

     

    Hey(hey) I will fy far away (aay)

    By any plane just not to meet you

    On my way, don’t stay, (hay )

     

    You dial my number

    Your dreams start crumbling

    You want me to be the man I’ll never ever be

     

    I don’t wanna be your toy boy today

    I’m not gonna be your boyfriend

    It’s too late

    I look over all the maps trying to escape

    ’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

     

     

    I don’t wanna be your toy boy today
