The singer, who competed for Belgium already in 1956, got to do it again for another three times - in 1958, 1960 and 1962. 

At his last attempt, Leclerc's became the very first person to ever finish with the dreaded 0 points at the contest with the song Ton Nom.

After his career as a pianist, accordionist, song writer and singer, Leclerc traveled the world before returning to Belgium where he began a new career as a building contractor. 

As his last notable connection with Europe's favourite TV-show, Leclerc was invited to a special programme for the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest by the Belgian broadcaster, RTBF as a guest star.
