“Before being a singer, I was and am a dancer.” So Loïc Nottet tells us at the start of what may just be the craziest music video for a Eurovision song in some time. “Rhythm Inside” becomes a near ten minute long performance piece, entitled “Alice in Nightmareland” – though if a shirtless, gyrating Loïc is what you’re after, this could be what your dreams are made of!

We know well that Loïc has been inspired by Sia in the past (and that she loved his cover of “Chandelier” to boot) and there’s certainly a heavy dose of that inspiration in the choreography. Loïc duels with Alice (played by Justine Vercleven) in scenes that aren’t too dissimilar to Maddie Ziegler and Shia LaBeouf in the video for “Elastic Heart”, with mock wrestling and blows thrown aplenty.

If we’re honest y’all, we are completely thrown by this one! This is clearly a Loïc Nottet labour of love, as shown by the number of credits he has for the video – director, costume designer, choreographer, the list really does go on. We aren’t going to try and understand just what is the deal at the start with the creepy “evil” nurses and the surgeon, but we certainly can appreciate the effort that has been made.

What’s more, Loïc’s dance performance really is stunning here and it’s impressive just how well he can perform. We saw him pull out some slick choreography in his recent performance of “Rhythm Inside” on the Voice of Belgium…which leads us to wonder why he’s also said there’ll be no such choreography in his Vienna performance. If he can deliver it, then we say let the boy dance!

What do you think of the “Alice in Nightmareland” video? Are you surprised by Loïc’s moves? Let us know in the comments below.

I like that Loïc feels comfortable to express himself both through his music and through dance. With that background, he will surely bring a memorable performance to the stage in Vienna. And did anyone recognise the early instrumental music as a reworked version of “Rhythm Inside”?

Also, yummy hot hottie babe!!!!
