Belarus: Lyrics changed in order to fulfill EBU rules

TEO (Belarus)

TEO is preparing for Eurovision 2014 and is actively rehearsing with his backing vocalists. He won the Belarusian national final in January with ‘Cheesecake’. The artist says that a slight change to the lyrics will be made.

EBU requires that the songs, competing in Eurovision, must not contain any advertising. TEO’s entry does mention ‘Google’ in the chorus which is against the rules. EBU has contacted Belteleradiocompany and informed the broadcaster that changes are need to be made. Therefore the ‘Google maps’ will be replaced by ‘all the maps’.

TEO says that he is not going to film a new music video for ‘Cheesecake’ although the music video was filmed before the victory in national final.
