Belgium: Blanche calls participation “weird, but exciting”

This week it was announced that the 16-year old Blanche, real name Ellie Delvaux, will represent Belgium in Kiev at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. Now, she spoke to local media with much enthusiasm.

Blanche only sees the positive sides of her participation in the biggest music competition in the world. “It is an adventure,” she tells De Redactie. “A unique experience which enriches your life. I am looking forward to it very much.”

May next year, over 200 million people will watch her perform, but this does not scare her: “That many people, with all these different backgrounds and cultures… The fact that they will be watching me feels a bit weird, and exciting at the same time.”
