Belgium has looked to its younger ranks in a bid to make a splash at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. This year they’re sending Eliot Vassamillet – an 18-year-old high school student – to the annual singing competition, hoping to improve on last year’s showing and earn his country a place in the Grand Final.

Who is Belgium’s Eurovision 2019 entry Eliot Vassamillet?
Despite being a mere 18 years of age and still a high school student, Eliot has already displayed his vocal prowess after entering Belgium’s answer to The Voice, (aptly named ‘The Voice Belgique’) at just 16. His talent saw him through to the first live show where he was eliminated.
Sennek competed at Eurovision in 2018 but, after Belgium’s three consecutive appearances in the final, she failed to qualify, finishing 12th in the first semi-final (the top ten acts in each go through).
