Eliot

Originally from Mons, Belgium, Eliot will represent his home country at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. His song 'Wake Up' was written by Pierre Dumoulin. Pierre was the creative force behind 'City Lights', a melancholic pop ballad sung by Blanche that took fourth place for Belgium at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eliot Vassamillet was discovered in season 7 of The Voice Belgique. After his first live show, he was contacted by Pierre Dumoulin who was enchanted by Eliot’s voice and presence.

Eliot explains: "Pierre invited me to his home in Liège. I told him about my background and my hopes. Having been given my first guitar aged 7 and with 2 years of music theory, my passion is for English pop and melancholic songs. Pierre made me listen to a demo of what Wake Up would become, and I loved it straight away. We talked about the song’s themes together. Wake Up is a call to young people to be active and rally together for a better world. We want to send that positive message of friendship and open-mindedness."

After The Voice, Eliot performed at several concerts across Belgium. Still just 18 years of age, Eliot also is currently finishing his secondary schooling at the Collège Saint-Stanislas in Mons.

Lyrics of Wake Up

I wake up every night
I can't find anyone to pray
somewhere in the light
Changing all up

I 'm afraid, on the side
Looking out for the lines to say
Someone has the light
Feeding our fire

I came to fight I came to fight over you
Don’t want your lies don’t want your lies I need truth
I came to fight I came to fight over you
No one will cry, no one will cry if it’s true

I’ll wait for the sign
I can't find anyone to stay
But there’s something in the light
Saving our lives?

And I can't face you now
No I won't break you down
If I can't find you
I won't hide you
It's not what I do

I came to fight I came to fight over you
Don’t want your lies don’t want your lies I need truth
I came to fight I came to fight over you
No one will cry, no one will cry if it’s true
