Belarus participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The Belarusian broadcaster National State Television and Radio Company of the Republic of Belarus (BTRC) organized a national final in order to select the Belarusian entry for the 2019 contest.
Artists and composers were able to submit their songs to the broadcaster.

The final took place on 7 March 2019 at the 600 Metrov studio in Minsk. The votes of seven jury members made up of music professionals selected the song Like It, performed by ZENA and written by Yulia Kireeva, Viktor Drobysh and Zinaida Kupriyanovich, as the winner.
