However, the interest in some BIG names is already creating the buzz behind the selection. Names such as Navi, Napoli and Vitaly Voronko have expressed their intentions to audition today for the selection process. Both Navi and Napoli took part in the Belarusian national final coming 4th and 2nd in the Grand Final respectively.
The Belarusian national final for Eurovision 2017 will take place no later than January 25th 2017, with the finalised date to be given at a later stage.
