Last week we were introduced to the five finalists of Belgium’s national selection show Eurosong 2016. On the first show, they each performed their interpretation of a Eurovision classic before being evaluated by an expert panel that included Alexander Rybak. This Sunday the five will debut their potential Eurovision entries – and we now know a bit about their songs.
The second show kicks off on Sunday, and broadcaster ÉÉN has now revealed the song titles of the five competing entries, as well as a brief description of the song. The contestants will each perform their song live for the first time. This week’s expert panel will be made up of Belgian singer Tom Helsen and singer-songwriter Beverly Jo Scott (Loïc Nottet’s The Voice Belgique mentor and co-writer of “Rhythm Inside”).
Eurosong 2016 song titles
Amaryllis – “Kick The Habit”
“An atmospheric and richly arranged pop song with a story and an addictive chorus.”
Tom – “I’m Not Lost”
“Tom pulls out all the stops with a contemporary power pop number.”
Astrid – “Everybody Aches”
“Astrid’s fragile voice comes fully into its own in this contemporary combination of a soul-ballad and electronica.”
Laura – “What’s The Pressure”
“This is Laura as we know it: energetic and driving funk-pop. Coupled with a searing brass section to give it that spark.”
Adil – “In Our Nature”
“Adil brings a song with a message, a wonderfully honest and beautiful pop song.”
