Belgium’s national final is already taking place on the 14th of January (this Saturday!) so the prospective Belgian representatives are busy selecting their songs. Today, Loredana selected “You Lift Me Up”!
Two potential songs
In the days leading up to Eurosong, the participants will perform their 2 songs for their fellow participants, who can then give them advice on which song they should choose. The final choice is still up to the participant themselves, though. Today, it was Loredana’s turn to choose between “I Dream In Colours” and “You Lift Me Up”, from which she chose the latter as her official song for Eurosong 2023.
During the other shows which will air on VRT this week, the other participants will select their song. The schedule is as follows:
- 10th of January: Chérine and Hunter Falls
- 11th of January: Hunter Falls and Ameerah
- 12th of January: gala dragot and Gustaph
- 13th of January: Gustaph and The Starlings
