Uzari and Maimuna have the jury to thank for their win because the public only rated them 3rd behind the already mentioned Milki and televote winner Muzzart who ended up only 7th place overall after a poor jury result. Belarus are currently joint 15th favourite to win.

Lyrics:
(Taken from eurovision.tv)

Tell me where I belong
I’ve been trying for so long
Breaking out through the night
Made me see the bright light
Now I’m willing to fight
And I know that Time is on my side
Chorus
Time is like thunder a-aa
Hear it like thunder a-aa
All we’ve got are somedays and I am
Trying not to waste.
Time is like thunder a-aa
Beating like thunder in our heads
Time is like thunder aa-aa-aa
Verse 2
At the end of your rope
Keep on hoping against all hope oo-o
Time is fading away
So don’t you lose a day
We can do what we say

Time is like thunder \Time is like thunder \Time is like thunder
I know ,you know
I don’t want to wait
Like thunder \ like thunder
Chorus
Time is like thunder aaa
Hear it like thunder aaa
Beating like thunder aaa aaa aaa
Time is like thunder aaa
Hear it like thunder aaa
All we’ve got are somedays and I’m
Trying not to waste.
Time is like thunder aaa
Beating like thunder ….
Time is like thunder aa aa aa
I don’t want to wait

  1. While watching the interview from Amsterdam, I fell in love with Maimuna, who seems to be a lovely young lady. Unfortunately, this song is even worse than the Sammarinese one. Belarus has finally been overtaken by Finland too, and as a result Uzari and Maimuna are in last place on my pre-contest list. This one just gets soooooo on my nerves. :(

  2. I’ve grown to love this song a lot.

    I didn’t like it immediately, but it has all the things I love since the revamp. String action, pathos, rousing bridge. It isn’t lyrically brilliant, but should do the trick.

    I also had a soft spot for Uzari to win for Belarus once, and luckily he did so with his best offer.

    Belarus has never qualifed in not Nordic hosted contests. This should break that curse.

    8.5/10
