Belarus rock the arena

by Glen Webb

In a change to the scheduling in Moscow today, Belarus were the third country to rehearse. Petr Elfimov performed his entry Eyes That Never Lie.

There was a rock feel to the staging of the Belarusian entry, with green and white flash lighting throughout the performance. Petr was dressed in a white jacket with a black t-shirt and black leather trousers. He is accompanied on stage by a guitarist and a person standing on a set of steps, completely covered in a very lengthy white sheet, which blazes a long trail when the wind machines are started. The guitarist was sporting a Petr Elfimov T- shirt.

Petr Elfimov's stage debut took place when he was six. In 2004 he won the Grand Prix at the International Popular Song Contest Vitebsk 2004 within the framework of the International Arts Festival Vitebsk Slavic Bazaar. One year later, he graduated from the Belarus State Music Academy, where he majored in Academic Singing. Since 2007, Petr has been teaching Popular Singing at the Modern Knowledge Institute. Currently he is doing a master course at the Belarus State Music Academy, and is hoping to get his master degree this June. To date, he has released two solo albums: I Want (2005) and The Bells (2007). Right now, Petr is also working on his new album, Glance Of Love.
