Tobson Ranking: #38 Belarus

You can say a lot about Belarus, but at least they remain true to their own style.

Litesound - We Are The Heroes (Belarus 2012)

The Belarus Style in Eurovision would above all be a neverending urge to adapt your own entry into all various kinds of directions in the vain hope that as many people as possible would find something they liked in it.

This year, that meant taking a rather goodlooking and pretty well-sounding rock band (at least if 80's rock à la Bon Jovi is your bag) and forcing them into a disco makeover that did not suit them particularly well.

We already knew that artistic integrity means nothing for Belarusian television when it comes to Eurovision, but if they tried it once or twice they might find that it has a tendency of paying off.

Their 2012 entry, on the other hand, is not bad. It just doesn't make a difference.

My grade: 1/5
