She’s been an independent artist ever she left Hooverphonic, and kicked off her solo career with “Not Too Late” in 2021. Now The Voice van Vlaanderen winner and Eurovision 2020 star Luka Cruysberghs has revealed that she submitted a song to Eurosong, Belgium’s selection for Eurovision 2023.She was tipped by fans as a potential entry for Flanders’ selection show earlier this year. However, the dream didn’t materialise.
As reported by Belgian media blog Showbizzsite.be, the singer told Flemish tabloid magazine Dag Allemaal that she did in fact submit a bid to VRT’s Eurosong. However, Luka and her track were not included in the list of finalists.
One of the big reasons, according to the article in Dag Allemaal, was the fact that Luka wanted to perform the song during the release party of her debut album back in October. VRT had already underlined that they did not want any of the Eurosong entries to be released prior to a certain date.
Earlier this month, Luka already hinted that she had submitted a song, after she replied to a comment music blog Dansende Beren made on her new song. Regarding a potential Eurosong participation between herself and musician Andromedik, the songstress replied:
I tried ?— LUKA CRUYSBERGHS (@LukaCruysberghs) November 11, 2022
Knowing that one of the songs she performed at that one concert was likely her Eurovision 2023 bid, it is a guessing game about which track might have been a potential song for Liverpool.
Eurosong 2023 will feature seven acts and will include a series of introduction shows and a grand finale that will take place in Brussels’ Paleis12 on 14 January.
