Yesterday Belarus qualified for Eurovision 2017 final despite media doubts and low betting odds.
The performance by Naviband was open and sincere and seemed to touch the public to the heart.
Many supported the Belarusian duo for the decision to sing in the native language:
Belarus. Happy folky pop. Singing in their native language. That could very well be my winner. #Eurovision

Twitter users also noticed one of the singers resemblance to a popular cartoon character:

And what do you think about “Historyja majho žyccia” and its chances in Eurovision’s final?
