Domracheva wishes Belarus luck at Eurovision Song Contest 2015

The music world is in anticipation of the week of Eurovision. Among the most discussed topics are favorites (there are a lot of them this year as never before), betting rates and, of course, the details of the opening ceremony. In particular, it is known that the stage will look like a giant eye. Moreover, for the first time in the history of the contest, three women will host the show.

Uzari and Maimuna represent Belarus at this song contest.

The CTV met in Austria with three-time Olympic champion and winner of the Big Crystal Globe Darya Domracheva. The athlete was flying through Vienna to training in Spain.

Darya Domracheva, Hero of Belarus, winner of the Big Crystal Globe, three-time Olympic champion:
Of course, I'll be watching our guys! I know that the semifinal is very soon. Hopefully, the guys will get into the final. And I hope they will perform well.  I think this is a very serious competition, I think they have done an amazing job and know how to amaze the public. Now I wish them one thing: just come on stage and enjoy the show!  

Not long ago Uzari celebrated his birthday right in Vienna, while Maimuna set the world record performing "Flight of the Bumblebee".

Journalists from all over the world will cover the contest. Broadcaster Duane from Melbourne has been covering Eurovision for 15 years. He never missed a contest. He says Belarus has chances to win and also host a competition of such a level.

Duane Zigliotto, director of a radio station (Australia):
Belarusians have a very cool song. I liked it. But everyone can win. For example, the United Kingdom.  You have a very good arena in Belarus so the country can host such contest as Eurovision.

The show will open with the performance of last year's victor Conchita Wurst. After the performance of his winning song, Conchita will go to the green room. Belarus will sing 11th in the first semifinal this evening.
