She was the first act confirmed for Eurovision 2018. Now, Sennek — AKA Laura Groeseneken — is almost ready to debut her Eurovision entry for Belgium.
We still have a little bit of a wait though. This year’s Belgian broadcaster, VRT, announced earlier today that the song will be released on Tuesday, March 6.
The song is set to be premiered on Belgian radio in the morning of the 6th. Songfestival.be speculate that means a reveal is most likely on the show De Grote Peter van de Veire Ochtendshow. Peter van de Veire has been the Flemish commentator since 2014, giving an obvious Eurovision connection.
Belgian’s attempts to keep their song a secret haven’t always worked before, though. Last year, Blanche’s “City Lights” leaked early — to a great reception. We’ll see if they’ve learned their lesson for this year!
Sennek has previously given a few hints about what the song may be like. It’s a self-penned track, that’s a “mysterious pop song”.
It also wasn’t specifically for Eurovision, but rather as something more meaningful to Sennek herself. That definitely sound the right way to go for us, y’all!
There’s definitely quite a bit of expectation for the song, no matter what it’s like. Belgium’s current run of form has seen them hit the top 10 for three years running, and the top 4 twice in that period. Can Sennek go even further?
