He was the very first act confirmed for Eurovision 2022, all the way back in September last year. But Belgium’s Jérémie Makiese hasn’t played all his cards so speedily. After six months of waiting, we’ll finally get to hear his Eurovision song for the first time on 10 March.
We still don’t have a title for the song. But at least we’ve only got two weeks to wait.
Jérémie Makiese to reveal Eurovision 2022 song on 10 March
The big reveal will take place on radio station VivaCité and TV channel La Une.
Jérémie will be a guest on the VivaCité radio show Le 8/9, which runs from 8:00 to 9:00 CET. At some point during that hour, the station will give Jérémie’s Eurovision 2022 song its premiere play.
Meanwhile, the music video for the entry will be shown on La Une.
Those wanting to hear a live performance from Jérémie will have to wait an extra month.
The Belgian singer was recently revealed as part of the line-up for Eurovision in Concert on 9 April in Amsterdam. Posting about the event on Instagram, Jérémie noted his excitement for the event whilst adding “Yes this will be my first performance of my song”.
If this is to be Jérémie’s first live performance of his Eurovision 2022 song, then that would unfortunately rule him out of the London and Barcelona Eurovision parties, which both take place in the week’s prior.
