Roberto Bellarosa to Malmö for Belgium16 November 2012 at 14:59 CET
We previously reported on rumours that Roberto Bellarosa - winner of the first edition of The Voice Belgique - will represent Belgium in Malmö in May. Now broadcaster RTBF have confirmed this to us, originally planning to release this news on the 20th of November at a press conference.
Roberto Bellarosa is relatively new to the music scene having won the first edition of the popular talent show The Voice Belgique. Earlier this year he released an album entitled Ma voie including the single Je crois.
When asked about his participation at the Eurovision Song Contest next year, Leslie Cable from RTBF told us:
"The choice of Roberto Bellarosa was obvious to us as he is the winner of The Voice Belgique, a talent competition based on high quality. The icing on the cake, in the opinion of lots of people from the professional world of music, is that Roberto does have an exceptional voice".
Details of how a song for Roberto will be chosen will be revealed at a press conference hosted by RTBF on the 20th of November. We will revert with more information as we get it!
