Last night Laura Tesoro was crowned the winner of Belgium’s Eurosong national final, meaning she’ll be heading to Stockholm with her song “What’s the Pressure”. But reaction has been mixed, both among fans and for Belgian Eurovision stars. And some of them really had something to say.
Sandra Kim (1986)
Bravo #lauratesoro veel succes en proficiat ! ????

Sandra Kim – who got Belgium’s first and only Eurovision win 30 years ago – offered Laura good luck and congratulations.
Kate Ryan (2006)

Kate Ryan threw some major shade, saying “Laura is not mature and sexy enough for this song. I’m sorry but my voice went out to Tom.” Hey, she’s just being honest! Ten years ago Kate failed to qualify for the final in Athens with the fan favourite “Je t’adore”. Can Laura do better in Stockholm?
Tom Dice (2010)
Ik wil wel iets zeggen maar te weinig tekens beschikbaar #eurosong

Tom Dice seemed to be holding back from saying what he really thought about Eurosong, tweeting that “I want to say something but not enough characters available”.

But there was no drama from Axel Hirsoux, who had nothing but kind, supportive words for Laura. Awww…

BJ Scott, who was Loïc’s mentor on The Voice Belgique, co-wrote “Rhythm Inside” and was on the Eurosong expert panel, had some praise for Laura.
