We speak from today about a new Eurovision season based on a line of the Eurovision Song Contest. That rule States that the songs in May to take part in a song contest for a country, not before 1 september of the year before commercial may be released. That means that all the songs loaded from gereleaset today are, in theory, qualify for a Eurovision entry.

The so-called 1-september rule came in 2010. Until then it was a 1-October rule, and that change has a Belgian statement: RTBF had a preliminary round for Eurovision 2011 with an online platform on which artists could place their songs and through crowdfunding could ensure a place in the national final. The platform went online on september 20, 2010, officially ten days early.
