Belgium 2013

    This is the song Belgium chose...Love Kills.

    It reminds me of Standing Still a little. It's a good song music wise, but I would choose the French song as I think it was more Roberto's style. However, if he works a little on his voice, I think he could make the final, this kind of songs can do well if they're performed well (like Roman did last year).
    Good luck to Belgium, Roberto is a very sweet guy :D

    PS This is the French song I'd have voted for if I was Belgian:


    I agree. Out of the 3 songs I would have gone for Reste Toi. It seems to suit him better than either of the other 2 and he looks more at ease singing it. However, Belgium has made its decision. I wonder if they felt a song in English would fare better than one in French.

    I find Love Kills somewhat monotonous I'm afraid, but may be it will grow on me.

    I also think Reste-Toi was by far the best choce for Belgium. Roberto was much more at ease in that one as he actually knew what he was singing about.
    I'm not a fan of Love Kills at all... it all depends on the competition obviously, but for now I think Roberto can take a flight back home before 18th May....

    This is what I read today:

    As we reported earlier this week, the Belgian representative Roberto Bellarosa travelled to Finland to record hisEurovision Song Contest entry Love kills on Tuesday.
    He spent two days in Helsinki with top producer Jukka Immonen, who is also a co-writer of the song.
    Jukka Immonen tells Finnish Eurovision news site viisukuppila.fi that Love kills has been more or less completely remade.
    The version heard in public was ultimately just a demo version, and we are now finishing it and it will be good, Immonen says.
    We have yet no information on when the final version will be made public, concludes Jukka Immonen.

    Thank God for that. I also noticed something when watching the live video again: Roberto coughed before performing. It was sort of clear he was not feeling well. (Might be old news, but ok.)

    So he admits the earlier version wasn't good, then :P
  8. Luis DLC I spread Eurovision joy in the US, oy

    What I heard is that this will be the third version, a second one was made but the team still didn't feel it was strong enough so they went to Finland to record the final. Good luck, Roberto :whistle:

    Looks like he'll need it then if he needs this much input to produce an acceptable version.
    I'm still hoping that as he sings it more and more he'll become much confident with it and will automatically sing it better.

    Belgium improved a lot for me. It's a decent song, but I'm not convinced it can achieve something in Malmö.

    Huge improvement, but I think his live vocals will stop it from going anywhere on the big night.

    and that live is good where? Holland maybe, but I think not in any other country :P
