Belgium: VRT first broadcaster to announce artist for 2018

Belgium will become the first nation to pick their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. Flemish broadcaster VRT will announce their artist this Thursday night at 22:10 CET.

The artist will be introduced on the talk show Van Gils & Gasten, where host Lieven Van Gils will interview the artist(s). We will not find out what the song for Lisbon will be. This will be presented at a later moment.

Belgium choose this method a couple of times before, in a very successful matter. Tom Dice, Loïc Nottet and last year, Blanche (pictured above) were also chosen and presented internal, and showcased their song at a later time and place.

In recent years, Belgium is one of the best countries at the Eurovision Song Contest, with three top-10 results in a row. Will they do it again?
