Minsk, Belarus -
Belarusian representative, the band 3+2, consists of Alena Karpovich, Ninel Karpovitch, Artsem Mikhalenka, Yehiazar Farashan and Yuliya Shyshko. So, you can guess what the name of the band came from!
On the 25th of February, the Belarusian champion for the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo was announced by BTRC. The honour went to the band 3+2.
3+2 were supposed to sing Far Away in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest, but just before the deadline to enter songs, a decision was taken that the group would perform Butterflies instead in the competition.
The song was composed by the famous Russian producer Maxim Fadeev with lyrics by Malka Chaplin.
Maxim Fadeev is a big name in the Russian music business and was successful as a television producer of the second season of Channel One talent's show Star Factory. Star Factory 2 eventually rose to prominence among many popular Russian singers, such as Yulia Savicheva, Elena Temnikova, Irakliy Pirzhalava, Pier Narciss, Elena Terleeva and others. Yulia Savicheva eventually competed for Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, reaching the 11th place.
