The VRT opts for a whole new concept, which has been described as ‘ a musical trajectory for five young top talents accompanied in their artistic development. One-network manager Olivier Goris: ‘eurosong 2016 is an investment in a hopefully long-lasting and successful future of young musical talent in Flanders – and perhaps beyond. ‘

The five participants were compiled by a team of music experts of the VRT, consisting of Gerrit Kerremans, Els Gemonpré, Hans Snijders and as a consultant Christopher Cameron, manager of among others Gabriel Rios, Selah Sue and Novastar. They also all five get coaching, by sounding names like Lady Linn, Geena Lisa and Ish Ait Hamou. At the press conference it was confirmed that the five songs in the running at present still not off.
