since there was a semifinal that year it should be added to the countries semi final places. the same should go for the other semi final before that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:11, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
No, for two reasons... 1) It wasn't a semi-final as such, not in the way semifinals are currently. In 1996, it was a qualification process to whittle down the number of participants from 29 to 24. 2) There isn't a record of what points were awards during that qualification round in 1996, so how would we know which country to allocate the points to? ...hope we've cleared up that.

The following section is trivial and has been removed. Additionally this section is too small to be in a section of its own. If the section is rewritten and contains reliable sources it may be included in another section:
Belarus every year from the moment of the debut in 2004 has given points to Russia the highest point of 12 points, except 2009 when it gave to the 12th representative of Norway of the Belarusian origin, and to Russia 8 and in 2011 Belarus stated Russia the lowest point in history - 5.
