Considering the multinational affair that is Eurovision, it's actually somewhat surprising that more of the submitted songs actually aren't more frequently nationalist self-promotion pieces. That said, maybe it's because few of them actually turned out better than "I Love Belarus". The "up! with! Belarus!" anthem is an embarrassingly corny attempt at mixing post-disco with a traditional dulcimer. Things are helped little by a video which includes dancers who would feel kitschy and overdone on "It's A Small World", less than in a music video. Anastasia's voice is perfectly serviceable; it's a nice, husky instrument with some real power to boot.
