A new version was recorded for Eurovision and several remixes will be released.

A promo cd /dvd set has five versions of Cheesecake.
1. Cheesecake
2. Cheesecake - Karaoke
3. Cheesecake - Acapella ft Five Men
4. Cheesecake - DJ Nejtrino & DJ Baur remix
5. Cheesecake - DJ Famous remix
and on the dvd
1. Cheesecake - Karaoke video
2. Cheesecake - Video

Belarus TV has hardly ever stuck to the original winner chosen, so chances are, this is probably not the entry for Copenhagen yet.
Teo is an expert on being replaced in Belarus. He co-wrote the winning songs of the 2010, 2012 and 2013 Belarus National Finals, but they all got replaced.

More Belarus
Alyona Lanskaya finished 16th in Malmö with the country's 10th entry Solayoh, but Litesound (2012) and Belarus Loving Anastasia Vinnikova (2011) didn't make it to the final.
3 + 2 and their Butterfly wings made it to #24 in the final in 2010. Eyes That Never Lie by Peter Elfimov stranded in the semi.
Belarus made it to the final three times out of ten.
