During the concert she performed her new song, Mama. 

Also in attendance were Uzari who composed Nadezhda's Junior Eurovision entry and also represented Belarus in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015 alongside the singer Maimuna. Kirill Ermakov, who wrote the music for Alexander's Junior Eurovision Song was there as well as singer Volha Satsiuk who represented Belarus in the very first Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2003.
