Belgium: Axel Hirsoux wins Eurosong with Mother 37

Axel Hirsoux has won Belgium Eurosong 2014 with his song “Mother” and will represent Belgium in Copenhagen. It was a decisive victory. He won the televote and received the highest points from the international juries (Azerbaijan, Denmark, Ireland, FYR Macedonia, Netherlands, Spain and Belarus). As he stated during the show, “Mother” pays hommage to all the mothers, grandmothers and women in the world. It’s a touching tribute from a talented singer. He’s clearly singing from the heart.

It was an intriguing evening. Eva and Ruslana had a little song competition of their own, the experts all stated they want Axel Hirsoux to advance to the final, Udo actually listened to what the experts told him last time, Sil didnt cry and Bandits fans shrieked and screamed until our ears rang. Not cute. But in the end, Axel won the day. With more than 50 percent of the televote, he is a deserving winner.
