RTBF has announced that the 18-year old singer Eliot Vassamillet will represent Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. His song will be composed by Pierre Demoulin, co-author of Blanche’s City Lights.
As in previous years, the Belgian French-speaking broadcaster has made an internal choice as this method has led them to successful results at Eurovision in the last few years. The young performer has been selected following his participation at The Voice Belgique where he went through the battles.
Pierre Demoulin will write the song Eliot will perform in Tel Aviv. He is not a stranger to the Eurovision fandom as he co-wrote the Belgian entry in 2017, ‘City Lights’ performed by Blanche, finishing 4th at the Grand Final.
The Belgian song for Eurovision 2019 is expected to be revealed next month.
