After the second casting of Eurosong Belgium this evening, we suddenly realized that we still have a long way to go before we know who will represent the Belgians in Copenhagen. Yes, broadcaster VRT has come up with an ingenious system this year that was probably dreamed up by some 30-year-old on a power trip. (Don’t get us wrong, the more Eurovision the better, but 2 castings, a call back, 3 semi-finals and a final seems a bit over the top, even for us). So, just to make sure everyone is still with us by the time we reach the finals of Belgium Eurosong, we have once again done the math for you. Here is the recap of the second casting and the results for the call back. Who’s in and who’s out? Read on to find out. And don’t forget to check out our reviews of all the artists and covers.
