Valentine Brognion to Represent Belgium at Eurovision 2019?

In 2018, Belgium were the first nation to reveal the identity of their Eurovision performer when they announced Sennek would represent them in Lisbon. Rumours for their 2019 have begun to gather some steam and many believe that Valentine Brognion could be Belgium’s pick for this year.

It must be noted that no official announcement has been made by national broadcaster RTBF as of yet, but if we look at Belgium’s track record the rumours begin to take on some weight:

  • Belgium chose their artist around this time last year, in fact much earlier (28 September). So we are overdue an announcement.
  • In the past five years, Belgium have chosen an artist associated with the Voice of Belgium on three occasions (Roberto Bellarosa in 2013, Loic Nottet in 2015 and Blanche in 2017). Rumoured contestant for 2019 Valentine Brognion won the Voice of Belgium earlier this year.
  • Part of her deal for winning the Voice of Belgium was a recording contract, and although the show ended in April, no new material has been forthcoming from Valentine. Perhaps Eurovision could be the launch pad for her new song?
  • Belgium have upped their Eurovision game in recent years choosing young artists with a contemporary vibe (Blanche, Loic Nottet, Laura Tesoro, Sennek). Valentine very much fits this mould, and on the Voice of Belgium made some unusual song choices that she managed to make work (‘Roxanne’ by the Police, ‘Hymn to Love’ by Edith Piaf and ‘Smalltown Boy’ by Bronski Beat).

Do you think Valentine would be the right fit for Belgium at Eurovision 2019? Leave us a comment below!

    • I would hardly call it fake news, more reporting on fan speculation and rumours…

      At least now we know for sure it’s gonna be Eliot Vassamillet.
