The first pre-recorded casting show was aired in Belgium with 15 Eurovision hopefuls trying to impress the jury which consisted of Piet Goddaer, Bart Peeters and Jef Martens. Ruslana will join them next time.
As the show was pre-recorded, the jury only determined the qualifiers as they gave points to the songs. Four most voted went straight to the semi-finals and four to the ‘callback’ where they get a new chance to impress the jury. Each participant sang a former Eurovision entry for the jury.
