Tonight in Belgium, 15 candidates gave all they could to impress the judges and qualify to the Semi-Final stage of broadaster VRT's revamped national selection format, Eurovision 2014. Unlike in previous years, VRT is going all out to find its candidate with a series of castings, semi-finals and a grand final, in order to find its act for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen in May.

The results

Of the 15 candates that performed for the judges tonight, the following four qualified directly to the Semi-Final stage:
  • Udo (93%)
  • Nelson (86%)
  • Eva Jacobs (86%)
  • Axel Hirsoux (84%)
Four acts also received a ticket to the Callback stage of the competition, where they will have one more chance to reach the Semi-Finals:
  • Joyce (82%)
  • 2 Fabiola feat. Loredana (81%)
  • Jessy (81%)
  • White Bird (80%)

Moved to tears

Udo, who received the most votes from the jury, made up of experts Bart Peeters, Piet Goddaer and Jef Martens, sang a rendition of Céline Dion's 1988 winning entry, Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi and in the process managed to move them to tears with a touching performance.
Belgium will take part in the second half of the first Semi-Final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 6th of May. This year it is the turn of the Flemish broadcaster VRT to pick the Belgian entry.
Stay tuned for more news about Eurosong 2014!
