Belgium will be represented at Eurovision 2017 by singer Blanche. She was one of the first acts to be chosen, and today the Belgian broadcaster announced that she will sing the song ‘City Lights’ in Kiev.

This week you have been voting in the last of our weekly polls before the Eurovision Final which will take place on Saturday 14th May. On top of the last weekly poll of the year was Albania. Eneda Tarifa has topped the poll an incredible nine out of twelve times with her song ‘Fairytale’. This week she topped the poll with 52% of the vote while Bosnia Herzegovina finished in second for a third week in a row with Ireland’s Nicky Byrne in third with 18% for his song ‘Sunlight’. The top five was rounded up by UK’s Joe and Jake and France’s Amir. Read on for the full results.
Albania seem unbeatable having topped our weekly poll an amazing eight times. However, this week we will do it all over again and for the last time. If you want to see your favourite song on top, then make sure you vote for them in this week’s poll. The poll will close on Sunday 8th May.
It’s all becoming all too predictable in our weekly poll. On top, yet again, you’ve guessed it it’s Albania. Eneda Tarifa’s ‘Fairytale’ is coming true it would seem, having topped our poll for a pretty impressive eight times over the eleven weeks that we have run it so far. The song came out on top again this week with 78% of the overall vote. Bosnia/Herzegovina came in second again this week with 7% for ‘Ljubav je’, a collaboration between Dalal, Deen, Jala and Ana Rucner. In third was Russia’s Sergey Lazarev with ‘You Are the Only One’, while fourth and fifth place belonged to UK and France respectively.
