In an exciting conclusion to the Eurosong 2016 national final, held by Flemish broadcaster VRT, the performer finished top of the 5-strong field with the entry “What’s The Pressure”, following a series of votes from international juries and the televoting scores of the Belgian public.
Turkey’s 2009 participant Hadise, who was born in Belgium, and Sweden’s head of delegation and Melodifestivalen producer Christer Björkman were on the panel to discuss tonight’s entries.
Laura Tesoro and Tom Frantzis led the way for much of the international jury vote, often trading places during the voting and following the addition of televotes the two made it to the superfinal of the competition.
After another round of flash voting with Adil Aarab, Astrid Destuyver and Amaryllis Uitterlinden eliminated, the public have decided to send Laura to Stockholm and as a result she will represent Belgium in Eurovision 2016.
What do you think of the winner? Should Belgium have chose otherwise?
