Tonight, VRT will continue the search for an oustanding artist, one who will be credible enough to put Belgium on the map and represent the nation in the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, Denmark. As was the case last week, sixteen (16) candidates will be featured on the show with special interpretations of former entries at the international event.  It is important to denote that VRT have gone for a different kind of selection following the disappointment with Iris and her entry Would You? back in 2012, languishing towards the bottom of the scoreboard.

This week, one is going to see several artist who have come from talent shows such as Pop Idol, or The Voice including none other than Maureen, Axeela, Yass and Andrei Lugovski. Aeali on the other hand features no less than Veronica, part of the duo Urban Trad who were near winners of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2003. There, she will be joined by Soetkin who was also part of that group. Day One, is the secret band which Kate Ryan seems to be the lead vocalist. It is important to denote that the female artist represented Belgium back in 2006, with her entry Je T'Adore failing to get through to the final despite having been seen by many as a possible contender for victory.

Soulbrothers - Puppet on a string (Sandie Shaw, 1967)

Mr. Jones - Standing Still (Roman Lob, 2012)

Sil - Where are you (Imaani, 1998)

Aelia - Poupée de cire, poupée de son (France Gall, 1965)

Tisha Cyrus - Dum tek tek (Hadise, 2009)

Petra - All kinds of everything (Dana, 1970

Bandits - Geef het op (Clouseau, 1991)

Axeela - Believe (Dima Bilan, 2008)

Manuel Palomo - Eres tu (Mocedades, 1973)

Yass - L'oiseau et l'enfant (Marie Myriam, 177)

Maureen - Ding-a-dong (Teach-In, 1975)

Bastien - Fly on the wings of love (The Olsen Brothers, 2000)

Andrei Lugovski - In a moment like this (Chanee & N'evergreen, 2010)

Dina Rodrigues - Ne partez pas sans moi (Celine Dion, 1988)

Day One - Satellite (Lena, 2010)

Nevertheless, it seems that the most remarkable audition from this evenings' programme might come from none other than Petra. This vocalist already took part in the national selection on more than one occasion, finishing in second place behind Kate Ryan back in 2006, as La Sakhra. Her audition clip has already been revealed by VRT Radio broadcaster; MNM and thus could be seen below. In the meantime, Eurosong 2014 could be watched on een as from 20:30 CET but no webcast to foreigners is being provided at least, on an official capacity. All the castings will then be made available for all to watch on the official website. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news about the Eurovision Song Contest 2014.
