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:
  1. The sharp and rhythmic movements of the singers.
  2. The global atmosphere of the song.
  3. The rhythm that makes me want to dance.
What are the three most impressive facts about you?
  1. 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.
  2. I also love tough challenges so that I can push myself without having set any limit.
  3. I have an enormous fear of mosquitos… I love everything: snakes, spiders, rats, etc. But no mosquitos!
Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?
Concerning my ritual, I love regaining some strength by consulting the lucky stars.
Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?
To me, this contest is really important because it gives artists a chance to gain exposure in front of a large audience.

Lyrics of Rhythm Inside

English (Original)

Listen to the sound of thunder Rolling in the soul down under Far beneath the skin, it rumbles Step to the step of the drum that rolls inside Be you enemy or lover We are put here to discover The heart that beats within each other We gonna rapppabab tonight

And if we die , tomorrow What’ll we have to show For the wicked ways Down below The rhythm inside is telling us We can fly tomorrow On the beautiful wind that blows On a cosmic track, love attack I‘m gonna get that rhythm back

Be you enemy or brother We were put here to discover The heart that beats within each other We’re gonna rompanpan ...

And if we die, tomorrow What’ll we have to show For the wicked ways Down below The rhythm inside is telling us We can fly tomorrow On the beautiful wind that blows On a cosmic track, love attack I‘m gonna get that rhythm back

French

Ecoute le bruit du tonnerre Qui résonne au plus profond de l’âme, Dans la peau, il gronde Marche pas à pas Au rythme du tambour qui bat en toi Que tu sois ennemi ou amant, Nous sommes ici pour découvrir Le coeur qui bat à l’intérieur de chacun de nous. Nous allons faire “rapppabap” ce soir
Et si on meurt demain, Que restera-t-il ici-bas De nos actes néfastes Notre rythme intérieur nous dit Que nous pouvons nous envoler demain Sur le vent qui souffle et nous emporte Vers une voie cosmique, armée d’amour Je vais reprendre possession de ce rythme
Que tu sois ennemi ou frère, Nous sommes ici pour découvrir Le coeur qui bat à l’intérieur de chacun de nous, Nous allons “Rompanpan”…
Et si on meurt demain, Que restera-t-il ici-bas De nos actes néfastes Notre rythme intérieur nous dit Que nous pouvons nous envoler demain Sur le vent qui souffle et nous emporte Vers une voie cosmique, armée d’amour Je vais reprendre possession de ce rythme
