This is not my favorite Eurovision entry from my favorite fake-sounding-but-real European country (that would be this one), but as Eurovision songs go, I kinda like it. I’m not sure how the “learn” in “I will help you learn how to fly” got lost on the way to the title.
On Monday Ivan made the news with the claim that he intends to perform the song at Eurovision naked and with actual wolves. As far as I can tell that isn’t going to happen, for all the reasons: animals aren’t allowed on stage, nudity isn’t allowed on the broadcast, and Ivan is irresistibly delicious to former apex predators.
It’s possible Ivan is joking about the whole performing naked thing. If you look through the video feed of the organization that handles Belarus’ entry into Eurovision there are a bunch of humorous videos staring Ivan, so maybe that’s his schtick.
