Belgium 2017: RTBF replies on plagiarism story; as usual nothing is investigated

BELGIUM – RTBF reacted to the plagiarism accusations by the fans as songfestival.be reports. The song seems to be very similar to another song, a comparison of which is posted in this article.

It is sad to see once again a national broadcaster replaying by saying that “It happens every year at eurovision. Also with Laura Tesoro and Loic Nottet there were similar accusations”.

The composer of the song Pierre Dumoulin says that “It is logical that there are similarities in the melody like we find in maybe a million other songs. In this way we can connect a Unlimited number of pieces of songs to other pieces.”

Then what? Well in the world of Eurovision when you spot plagiarism you need to submit an official complaint to make an official investigation. Weirdly no one does that…

So we have the 2017 Måns Zelmerlöw case and of course neither EBU or RTBF give a damn about it. So much for the originality rule of the Eurovision Song Contest!

This passion begins in 1984, in 1996 I established oikotimes as a printed pamphlet and in 2001 as a website turned eventually into Eurovision. The best thing happened is that I got to know some great friends.

  1. “So we have the 2017 Måns Zelmerlöw case and of course neither EBU or RTBF give a damn about it. So much for the originality rule of the Eurovision Song Contest!” Again, what’s the connection of Måns Zelmerlöw with all this?

  2. then I think you should see an ear doctor dear – before attacking someone because you feel that’s the only option for you – think twice #hahaha

  3. hahaha are you serious? You really need to fix your plagiarism criteria, the only similarity I find is that they both are young girls singing a modern song. But wait maybe you’re right, just change the speed, the language, the lyrics, the melody, the tone of voice and yeah both songs sound exactly the same haha

  4. and the similarity is? sorry but they don’t sound similar, is a similar style yes, but the melody doesn’t sound the same

  5. What do you mean by “the 2017 Måns Zelmerlöw case”? …
