Belgian regions Wallonia (with its broadcaster RTBF) and Flanders (with its broadcaster VRT) have taken turns representing the country at Eurovision since the contest was born in 1956. But recently we had the chance to see what happens when you bring the best of these two regions together. Loic Nottet (ESC 2015, RBTF) and Laura Tesoro (ESC 2016, VRT) performed a dazzling duet for the Belgian charity Rode Neuzen Dag.
Roze Neuzen Dag (Red Nose Day) is a yearly fundraising event. It’s organized by broadcaster VTM, radio station Qmusic and Belgian bank Belfius. Every year the event has a different goal and in 2019 the focus was on “making youth more resilient”. The event was organized in Flanders’ biggest venue — the Antwerpen Sport Paleis.

Laura and Loic not only showed how strong they are vocally, but also demonstrated how in touch with their emotions they are. We don’t know about you, but this gives us goosebumps.
Loic also brought a new version of his Eurovision 2015 song “Rhythm Inside”. The more up tempo and even more contemporary version may leave your head spinning! No matter how you cast this song, it’s still a banger!
It’s just the latest swerve on innovation he’s thrown at us. You’ll remember that Loic recently released a new EP and Halloween-themed short film.
The Belgian event also drew guests from over the border. Duncan Laurence — the reigning king of Eurovision — performed his new single “Love Don’t Hate It” to support the cause.During the event, the “Arcade” hitmaker received his plaque to mark his song going platinum in Belgium. While he was in the country, he also gave two concerts in TRIX as part of his ongoing tour.
