The first scandal of the 2012 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest seems to have been uncovered from the eastern country of Belarus. A couple of weeks ago, the high profile national selection known as ‘Eurofest’ took place under the hospice of the broadcaster, BTRC but then again, it seems that the final result was a fraud despite the fact that Alyona Lanskaya was one of the two favourites to walk away with the top placing with the song ‘All My Life’ which was most probably set to be transformed or changed completely before Baku, Azerbaijan.
The president of the country called a committee to look into the results which seemed somewhat incorrect and found enough evidence to annul the result thus coming up with the solution of sending the runners-up to the musical competition instead. Therefore, following years of unsuccessful attempts, the group Litesound will be the representatives for Belarus. The song they performed in the selection was entitled ‘We Are The Heroes’ although it is not known whether they will be changing the song. More information is expected in the next couple of days so stay tuned to ESCflashmalta for all the latest news.
