The first entries for the 2013 ESC have already been determined is the first country to choose the representative, even if it’s still 2012. Normally Albania makes the kick off at the end of the previous year. But this time, the entries from Belarus, Switzerland and Belgium have been the fist!
The very first country to pick its representative was Belarus. The singer Alyona Lanskaya, who already won the last year’s pre selection, but unfortunately had to make way for Litesound due to inexplicable reasons. Let’s hope that this time she won’t have to withdraw.
