Ladies and Gentlemen, Tonight Belgium will select their entry for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest! You are invited to join us and have your say throughout the show. I will be keeping check of our Twitter, Facebook, and Forum and I will be using some of the best comments right here in the live report!
Get your drinks, popcorn, pizzas or whatever you do to watch the national finals. The show begins at 20:25 CET.
The show opens with Hadise performing in what can only be described as a dress stolen from Portugal’s Suzy (Eurovision 2014)
Song 1. Adil “In Our Nature”
Visually this is amazing! UV paint on the dancers with a lot of smoke on the floor. Adil Performs this very well, this could place high in Stockholm! The whole staging is effective but strange. Adil hits some decent notes. this is really good. Could end up a dark horse I think! Very strong start to the show
GlamSIMorous – Oh my god, that body paint is epic
Sammy – reminds me a bit of the helpers of a villain in Batman and Robin. But it’s true, the body paint is great
Matt – Adil’s song falls flat in every way I’m afraid. I assume that there is something better and memorable in the running. The Staging was alright but not feeling it, just didn’t translate on camera probably.
Song 2. Laura “What’s the Pressure”
I’m getting an Andy Abraham vibe from this song. Vocally she is good. The staging is ok. I dont see this troubling the juries if it goes to Stockholm. It is a decent performance but I am more drawn to the backing singers than Laura.
Sean – Pretty sure this is Fleur East. Blatant plagiarism
Lupus – Better than the first. She doesn’t seem to be making the most of the song for me. Sounds as if it could be better, but I liked what I saw.
Matt – Isn’t Laura the favorite to win? At least that I was told. With that song?!? Meh, I actually prefer Adil over that.
AlekS – predictable performance. The backing vocalists totally outstaged her Her vocals sound much better tonight, imo she’s the winner. If you choose her prepare for a huge floppage in May.
Uvaro – tom has to win!
Matt – Meh. Everything is so middle of the road. Inoffensive but not really something that stands out. Saving the best for last Belgium?!?
Sean – That should’ve been far less boring than it was…
Sammy – This is a strange staging…. spider web, flying lamps… what is the meaning?
Joyster – Don’t understanding that act at all?
