This year it is the turn of broadcaster RTBF to choose the Belgian Eurovision entry. Earlier this week they unveiled that it will be Ellie Delvaux a.k.a. Blanche who will follow in the footsteps of performers like Laura Tesoro and Loic Nottet and represent Belgium on the Eurovision stage.
Blanche has a wealth of experience performing live, having competed in the fifth season of The Voice of Belgium and she regularly posts her unique take on a number of popular songs on her YouTube channel. Check out her version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’.
While the singer has not revealed her song for Eurovision 2017, she has announced that she has been working with singer/songwriter Pierre Dumoulin (lead singer of group Roscoe) to co-write the entry.
Was Ellie the right pick for Belgium? Would you have preferred a selection show similar to last year’s ‘Eurosong 2016’? Share your thoughts below.
