Belgium: Radio final to choose song for Roberto

Posted 20 November, 2012, 15:16

Belgian francophone broadcaster RTBF praised Roberto Bellarosa for his outstanding voice, when discussing the reasons for internally selecting the young artist.
Bellarosa shot to fame after winning the first series of The Voice Belgique, which gave him a lot of media exposure and laid the foundations for his future success. His songs including the single Je Crois have been played frequently on radio stations in Belgium.

A three-song radio selection

Now RTBF have released details of how Roberto's song will be chosen by way of a three-song national selection to be aired on Vivacité Radio and on Sunday the 16th of December. Radio listeners and visitors to the website will have 50% of the vote whilst the remainding 50% will go to a professional jury.

The songs have not been selected as yet but this will happen shortly and snippets will be presented from the 1st of December.
At a press conference held today, Roberto expressed his initial doubts taking part in a new competition but was won over by the fact that he was internally chosen.
Stay tuned to for more news about the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, including the Belgian final on the 16th of December.
