Aleksandra Kirsanova, vocalist of musical duo “Alexandra and Konstantin”, Belarus’ representative at Eurovision 2004 song contest: Behind the stage we did.

Konstantin Drapezo:
Conchita Wurst did not win in our days.

Alexandra Kirsanova:
For this reason we didn’t feel free to kiss in front of everyone.

As many as 13 years have passed. What do you think, is it the right time to sing in the Belarusian language? Or could you have tried to do it then?

Alexandra Kirsanova:
Songs in the Belarusian language could be sung at any time, nobody prohibited it. If a song is born in a certain language, then this song should exist in this language.

Our song was born in the English language, we didn't translate it into the Belarusian language.

The guys from Naviband copmosed a song in the Belarusian language, they sang it brilliantly. The song sounded very natural.
