Tonight: Eurosong culminates in Belgium

Eurosong final

Antwerpen gets to host the Belgian national final tonight as the last national final this season. Eurosong started in August when the broadcaster started accepting applications from willing artists. 30 of them were invited for auditions where the jury panel voted for their favorites based on the artists’ performances of previous Eurovision entries.

Three semi-finals of four participants were competed in February-March and two from each show qualified for tonight’s final. The line-up for tonight is:

  • Axel Hirsoux – Mother
  • Bandits – One
  • SIL – What’s The Time In Tokyo
  • Yass – Need You Tonight
  • Eva Jacobs – Nothing Is Impossible
  • Udo – Hero (In Flanders fields)

Webcast is available here at 20:00 CET. The winner is chosen not only by the audience but also by international juries. Jury panels from Azerbaijan, Belarus, Netherlands, Spain, FYR Macedonia, Denmark and Ireland will be voting for their favorites as well. The votes will be converted into points and the act with the most points will be representing Belgium in Copenhagen!

  1. And the very last national final of the Eurovision season 2014 is a fact. All in all, this is still a good final even though I don’t agree with the selection process at all. The juries have made some disastrous choices.

    – Alex Hirsoux – Mother (Beautiful and emotional song about the love for a mother. Each time I listen to this song I get silent and emotional. Clearly the favorite to beat.)
    – Bandits – One (The youthful enthusiasm of these young guys is great. Very good singers and their performance is a pleasure to watch. I like the song very much, but I expected a more spectacular song.)
    – Eva Jacobs – Nothing is impossible (Strong popsong sung by the beautiful Eva.)
    – Sil – What’s the time in Tokyo? (Very good singer with a beautiful and fragile ballad.)
    – Udo – Hero (In Flanders fields) (A very strong song with an universal theme brilliantly sung by Udo. A major contender for victory, and rightly so.)
    – Yass – Need you tonight (The most uninteresting song of this final. I don’t like his voice and he doesn’t always seem to hit the right notes. Similarly, the combination of French and English doesn’t work in this song. Last place in the final for me. The fun and catchy “She’s after my piano” by 2Fabiola ft. Loredana did deserve this place in the final instead of Yass.)

    Good luck Belgium!
