Belgium 2016: Hadise and Björkman experts at national final
Vasil Dimitrov (Bulgaria)
BRUSSELS, BELGIUM – Belgium is preparing intensively for their selection towards Stockholm. Today our friends from Songfestival.be revealed that at the finals on sunday 17th January the two international experts will be no less that 2009 Turkish entry Hadise and the almighty Christer Björkman!
The choice on Hadise might be logical. She obtained a great 4th place in Moscow with Dum tek tek. Although being turkish but she has Belgian nationality. Christer Björkman doesn’t need any introduction as he is the master on Melodifestivalen, the Swedish selection for Eurovision which has proven huge success over the last years!
It must be noted that the experts will not have any voting role. They will just give advice towards the candidates and the jury’s. In the finals there will be 10 international jury’s (just like in Melodifestivalen) who will cast their vote along with the televoting of the Belgian audience. It is to be expected that next to the international experts there will be also at least one Belgian expert.
For the first and second show of Eurosong 2016 no names have been announced till now, but we can only assume it will have big names!
