Belgium set to announce details of national selection

14 November 2012 at 12:05 CET

Belgium's participation in the Eurovision Song Contest is very unique whereby the Dutch speaking broadcaster VRT and the French speaking broadcaster RTBF alternate organising the Belgian entry.

This year in Baku, the Flemish singer Iris unfortunately failed to qualify to the Final, with a similar fate suffered by Witloof Bay in Düsseldorf in 2011 who just missed out on qualification.

In Malmö RTBF are once again responsible for organising the Belgian participation and we have been informed that they will be hosting a press conference on the 20th of November to announce details of their national selection.

Rumours circulating the press

Some mainstream news sites and Eurovision Song Contest fan sites have been circulating rumours that the first winner of The Voice Belgique, Roberto Bellarosa has been lined up by RTBF to represent Belgium in Malmö. We'll find out next week if these rumours prove to be true!

Belgium has a rich history in Europe's favourite TV show, having won once in 1986 with Sandra Kim and J'aime La Vie. Stay tuned to for more news of the Belgian selection as we get it.
