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.

Declaims? There were no declaims :@

Kate Ryan (aka. Day One) and Axxela both had 255 from all 3 experts, and it gives whole 85. That’s still unfair. Anyway take a look 91,89,75 to Day one, J. Martens that gave 75 must be deaf ^^

Over the top? Naaah, look at Lithuania & Azerbaijan lol.
I wonder if we’ll ever find out if Kate Ryan is in Day One? 😛

Good episode!! Loved Yass, Petra, Axeela & Sil. The Bandits are actually not too bad, but seem like they came from the junior eurosong a bit too soon…

Well, it’s because Axeela had more points, if you include decimals, but these are not known 😉

@Mika: The average score (points behind the dot) of Axeela was higher than Day One.

Can anyone explain me why Day one isn’t in and Axxele is? They both had 85% Thats pretty unfair
