Loïc Nottet is a young and complete artist who is already conscious of the universe he wishes to create. He participated in the total conception of this project. He composed the music, melody, collaborated the choreography, co-designed the look and visuals that will be used during the presentation in Vienna.
At the age of 17, Loïc Nottet took part in the Blind Auditions singing the hit song Diamonds by Rihanna. His knockout performance and unique voice instantly won over the coaches and the audience alike. As a finalist in the third season of The Voice Belgique, the young Courcelles native signed a contract with Sony Music Entertainment. His father wanted him to become a football player, but he wanted to sing and dance. With a style that is instantly upbeat and sincere, Loïc became a darling of the public thanks to his charisma and all-round personality.
Among the artists "worshipped" by Loïc, is Sia. This Australian singer is a source of inspiration for many artists. Several months ago, Loïc recorded a cover of her hit Chandelier; a cover that was discovered by Sia herself, who re-tweeted it accompanied by a personal compliment to her over 840,000 followers on Twitter. What a fantastic way to turn the spotlight on Belgium’s representative at the Eurovision Song Contest!
Things you should know about Loïc Nottet
What are the three most interesting aspects about your entry?
The most interesting aspects are the ones that make sure that my performance and song turn my world upside down. I am someone who is really detached from reality. If I had to choose three aspects, I would say:
- The sharp and rhythmic movements of the singers.
- The global atmosphere of the song.
- The rhythm that makes me want to dance.
What are the three most impressive facts about you?
- If I haven’t had training in a certain field (for example, composing), I try to teach it myself while learning from my own mistakes.
- I also love tough challenges so that I can push myself without having set any limit.
- I have an enormous fear of mosquitos… I love everything: snakes, spiders, rats, etc. But no mosquitos!

Concerning my ritual, I love regaining some strength by consulting the lucky stars.
