IVAN to represent Belarus in Eurovision 2016!
Frederik | On 22, Jan 2016
Following a national final decided entirely by televote, the Belarusian people have decided to send IVAN, whose real name is Aleksandr Ivanov, to Stockholm with the song “How To Fly.”
Also behind Russia in 2005 and 2012
The song was created by Victor Drobysh, with lyrics by Mary Applegate, the team behind the 2005 and 2012 Russian entries.
IVAN placed narrowly in front of Napoli, who performed a song very reminiscent of Zlata Ognevich’s “Gravity.”
This Monday, it will be decided in which half of which semi-final IVAN will perform for Belarus, as the allocation draw takes place at Stockholm city hall.
