Belarus: Changes to the lyrics of "Cheesecake"!

Due to the reference of "Google Maps" in TEO's song, the lyrics have been changed slightly to comply with EBU rules. References to any organisation are now allowed as the EU regulations clearly state “no messages promoting any organization, institution, political cause or other, company, brand, products or services shall be allowed”.

The lyric has now changed to "All Maps". I'm surprised Belarus hasn't changed the song yet, to be honest... haha! Although TEO has actually confirmed that he wants to keep this song for Copenhagen. Valentina Monetta had the same problem in 2012, as her original entry was entitled "Facebook Uh-Oh-Oh" but the reference to Facebook was taken away as it would have been disqualified otherwise.
