They say that if you want something, pretend to do it until you do it. Bearing this in mind, Belgium’s Laura Groeseneken clearly has her sights set on winning Eurovision for Belgium!
When Flemish Broadcaster VRT announced that Laura would represent Belgium in Portugal next year, she sang an English language cover of Amar Pelos Dois entitled Love For Both on the Belgian talk show ‘Van Gils & Gasten’. Although the video has been available online for the last two months, it has today been uploaded to the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel – if you missed it first time round, check it out here!
The English language lyrics were written by former Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak, who released the song on the 14th of May 2017 – the day after Portugal won their first ever contest.
We here at Eurovision Ireland are thoroughly impressed by Laura’s performance! Belgium have been doing consistently well in the last few contests, qualifying for the final every year since 2015. Could a long awaited second Belgian win at Eurovision be heading our way?
What do you think? Do you like Laura’s voice? Do you like the English version of Amar Pelos Dois?
Let us know what you think!
