Tonight, Belarus has chosen Khelena Meraai to represent them at the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Tbilisi, Georgia with her song “Ya Samaja”. The winner was determined by 50% televote, 50% jury vote. Khelena proved to be a popular winner, coming first in both the televote and the jury vote. TEO (Belarus participant at Eurovision 2014 with "Cheesecake") was one of the hosts of the national final.
Alexander Minyonok who achieved 7th place for Belarus at Junior Eurovision 2016 opened the show with his Junior Eurovision entry “Muzyka moikh pobed”, and also performed a cover of the Shawn Mendes hit "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" during the interval act. The interval also saw some of the acts perform that just missed out on the final 10, but that were regarded highly by the juries.
