Roberto Bellarosa took Belgium to the Eurovision Grand Final this year to the surprise of some people – well me actually. However credit where credit is due.
However since Eurovision this year he seems to have reignited a passion in Eurovision in his home country of Belgium where the National Broadcaster has announced details of the re-introduction of a National Final tv show for 2014 – “Eurosong”. On top of that Roberto has charted in some countries across Europe.
None more so than Lithuania where he reached #1 and is currently at #2. To put that into context he is outselling Eurovision Winner Emmelie de Forest who is at #13 and One Direction who are at #4. Hey not bad going – even if it the Lithuanian charts is not a huge selling territory – you will still take that success.
Question is now will he be able to follow-up this success?
