Belarus debuted in the second edition of The Origin Song Contest. The Belarusian broadcaster, Belteleradio, is in charge of the country's participation at the contest.

History Edit

Belarus did not participate in the first edition of the Origin Song Contest, but despite this, the contest gained a sizeable following in the country.

Because of this, Belteleradio decided to enter in the second edition..IOWA were internally selected, and chose their song "Moi Stikhi, Tvoya Gitara" to represent Belarus. They were predicted to finish dead last in the entire contest, but finished 12th in the semi-final, receiving a total of 34 points (including one set of 12 points from Ukraine.)

For the third edition, a national final was held to improve the country's chances of qualification. The national final was named "Naš Puĺs Bjecca" which translates into "Our pulse beats". (Read more on Naš Puĺs Bjecca 1.3.) Zøya won the national final and went on to compete in the first semi-final, where she finished sixth and qualified. She placed seventeenth out of twenty-six in the final, despite having been predicted to finish 3rd overall, and receiving one of the best average rankings in the previews of all time.

In the fourth edition, Naš Puĺs Bjecca was renewed, and the next edition was named "Naš Puĺs Bjecca 2.4", and the numbering system was invented. The two refers to edition of the national final, and the four refers to the fourth edition of The Origin Song Contest. Eleven acts were hand picked after live audtions by a professional jury panel and the other auditioning artists.

Naš Puĺs Bjecca continued as a selection method for the fifth edition of The Origin Song Contest as well. However, Naš Puĺs Bjecca 3.5 came with a special twist, requiring all entries to be performed in the Belarusian language.
