Belgium’s Blanche: I’m singing about a guy in “City Lights”, but I don’t want him to know!

She’s one of the youngest competitors at this year’s Eurovision — and she’s carrying some of the biggest expectations.

But Belgium’s Blanche is keeping her feet on the ground and her enthusiasm up, as she proved while talking to wiwiblogger Bernardo at the recent Eurovision PreParty Spain event in Madrid.

“I’m really excited because we’re getting closer to Kyiv and I can’t wait to be there,” the 17-year-old told us inside the lavish Melia Galos Hotel. “And I can’t imagine that in, like, two or three weeks I’m gonna leave and go to Kyiv.”

Blanche interview at Eurovision PreParty Spain

Despite performing her entry “City Lights” in London and Tel Aviv, this teen queen was still thrilled to deliver another live show in Spain.

“I’m excited because the place is really, really nice and it’s the last time before Kyiv. It’s strange to think it’s the last time I sing it like this.”

Even so, Blanche admitted that she’s glad the promotional phase is coming to an end: “At the pre-parties it was really hard for me because I feel I was here to meet people and not to give them something.”

“When I was on stage, I was more thinking about smiling to people and having eye contact than being in my song. In Kyiv I will have to be in my song.”

The Voice Belgique star did not reveal much about the staging she’ll present in Kyiv, but she did confirm that the job was almost done. “I’m almost ready,” she said. “We still have rehearsals in Brussels, but we have to be totally prepared.”

Blanche’s message to Eurovision fans was short and simple: “Belgium is a beautiful country, so if you want to come visit next year, you have to vote for me!” Let’s do this!

Blanche interview at London Eurovision Party

Speaking about her song “City Lights” in London, ahead of the London Eurovision Party earlier this month, the teen songstress said: “I’ve loved it from the beginning. It was one of the first songs I recorded.”

“It’s a love song. It talks about the period when you don’t really know what’s going on with the guy.”

Blanche confessed she was thinking about the guy while performing the song, but refused to give any more away. “It’s private, I don’t want him to see that!”
