We’re into the final stretch for day seven of Eurovision 2022 rehearsals. Only three acts are left to perform, the first being Belgium’s Jérémie Makiese. How did “Miss You” turn out on stage? Let’s find out…
Belgium’s Jérémie Makiese “Miss You” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Dressed in a shiny silver jacket, jeans and a black shirt, Jérémie looks effortlessly cool on the Turin stage. He starts off alone, shrouded in blue and white lights. After a while, he’s joined by four shadowy figures. These are later revealed to be street dancers and they go on to do some stylish choreography along with Jérémie himself. His voice is wonderfully rich and he seems to be largely recovered from the pre-contest vocal issues which were reported in local media.

What do you think? How will Jérémie fair in the semi-final? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
zzz.. perfect time to go to the bathroom
Belgium tried modern outfits before with Eliot and vigorously defended them. They didn’t listen to us back then, so I doubt they are going to listen to us now. Jérémie is going for a flashy street look, but I think he’s sexier than his outfit is, which is a bit of issue. However, bravo on the vocals and on bringing the performance together. It will have its fans.
Listening to the comments, the staging is awesome, but also bland, the color grading is lovely, but also mismatched, and Jeremy’s vocal performance elevates it all, while simultaneously bringing it down. 😉
I felt empty watching this. No charisma, no entertainment hidden in it. I should have seen this coming…
Does nothing for me.
I agree with people on the outfit… But the vocals were great, idk whats that about lol
This color palette doesn’t feel right. I still think his vocals (when on point) are undeniable and think juries will eat them up. I feel the music video felt more premium than this performance. Belgium has qualified with lesser songs and lesser vocals. And no one is doing this kinda song and giving this kinda vibe this year at all.
I don’t know how competitive a song this is but Jeremie seems to have some good eye contact going on and with its professional production and strong vocals, juries will like it. It’s not *quite* there.
Staging and color combinations look great, but those vocals… I think Belgium will really struggle given that the other male jury- contenders (Azerbaijan, Australia and Poland) are really delivering on the vocals.
I found vocals really good.
Agree with you, and for me neither Ochman nor Nadir were on point…
Even though I agree on the fact that the outfit is not good, I can’t agree on the fact that he didn’t sing well. You must be drunk to think that. It was not his best but I find it quite good. It’s even more better when you know that he was sick last week and had a vocal cord infection.
I give him a spot in final wothout any doubt.
It’s even better* (wanted to write something else at the beginning)
Well call me drunk, but i didn’t like his vocals.
belgium, darling, what are those outfits…no no no
I don’t like this at all. His voice, staging, nothing.
It probably will struggle, personally can’t see it in the final (if it qualifies, it’ll be like 10th or 9th at best).
Even his outfit is bad
I adore the staging but Jeremie sounds like he’s struggling with the high notes (he had the first voice cracks of the year, so far) and now I’m in agony… XP
