Alekseev's Eurovision song is a plagiary?

True Eurovision fans are shocked-another scandal concerning Alekseev’s Eurovision song.

Many music specialist and fans of the competition as a whole think that Alekseev’s Eurovision song is very similar to the one a representative of Israel Gali Atari performed at Eurovision back in 1979. What is more, it was a winning song.

Nevertheless, producer Maksim Aleinikov has commented on the issue and he assures all the fans of Eurovision that Alekseev’s song is by no means a plagiary.

Maksim Aleinikov, musical producer:
It is not a plagiary. There are many songs alike, but in this case it cannot be called a plagiary. The melodies are different.

Meanwhile, Belarus is holding its breath and feeling excited about who is going to represent Belarus at Eurovision 2018 in Portugal. The intrigue will be revealed on February 16, 2018. A professional jury and public votes will decide who will win the right to represent Belarus at a prestigious European song contest.
