Soloist of the Belarusian group "Litesound" Dmitri Kariakin said that Belarus should no longer participate in "Eurovision," as did the Czech Republic and Poland. Otherwise, it should figure out how other countries are let to the finals and conclusions are drawn. According to him, it’s "just a purely human pity that the "Eurovision" turns into a sort of "Balkanovision" today.
Litesound soloist does not believe that someone is to blame for the fact that the group has not reached the final of "Eurovision." He said that the band members had great fun during their stage performance. He hopes that the audience and the Belarusians haven’t got upset because of their failure to enter the final.
"I was sort of indifferent, whether we’d pass in the finals or not. The saddest thing is that I felt nothing when our country was not mentioned among the finalists," said "Litesound" singer, writes "Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus." According to Dmitri Kariakin, he missed the moment of excitement; the band had a very long way to "Eurovision" (it got to the competition with a sixth attempt), it took so much emotion so they were just unable to feel anything at the very end.
Dmitri Kariakin said that he’s going to rest, the group would return home on Sunday. According to him, we won’t even watch the final of "Eurovision."
"For me, this contest is over. If Europe is so excited to see only the Balkans singing in the finals, let it be so. No, I'm not upset. When I was sitting in the hall, I saw that a viewer reacted to the countries, but not the songs. It turns out that "Eurovision" is a competition fans of the country?!" said the soloist.
Dmitri Kariakin believes that the "Eurovision" was "somehow disgusting and vulgar." According to him, he wanted to get away from the hall, take a night walk in Baku. "I'm not going to cry and beg: take me to the finals," said the singer.
After the announcement of the results of the second semifinal, Dmitri Kariakin asked his fans in social networks not to get upset.
"The guys looked decent on stage. The song is beautiful, and Dima performed it well! No luck, maybe because there were few neighbors. This is a competition! Somebody wins and somebody loses," said an artistic Project Manager of "Eurofest," Alexander Tikhonovich.
