Eliot will voice Belgium’s Eurovision 2019 entry

Posted

The 18-year-old singer from Mons rose to national fame during 'The Voice Belgique' last year and has been chosen by Belgian national broadcaster RTBF to represent the country at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in May.

Eliot (full name: Eliot Vassamillet) will represent Belgium with a song composed by Pierre Dumoulin. Pierre is the composer and leader of the Belgian group Roscoe and is one of the composers of Belgium’s 2017 Eurovision Song Contest entry City Lights, the song with which Blanche reached fourth place in the Grand Final in Kyiv.

Eliot’s journey started early 2018 during his first blind audition at The Voice Belgique, where coach Slimane was impressed by the power, ease and sensitivity of Eliot’s performance. At one point he got noticed by Pierre Dumoulin: "The moment I saw Eliot’s blind audition, I felt he had that little something extra that I look for in an artist, the sensitivity and fragility which are so necessary to convey emotion."
