Flemish broadcaster VRT will not have a national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, Songfestival.be has learned from Peter Van de Veire, commentator for VRT at this year’s Eurovision and host of Eurosong editions in 2012, 2014 and 2016.
In an interview with Songfestival.be in Kiev, Van de Veire shed light on previous editions of Eurosong, and revealed plans for the selection of 2018:
“We closely looked at the time and effort we put into coaching Laura Tesoro last year after she won Eurosong, and for next year, we want to focus on one artist and one song.”
More details about the Belgian entrant for 2018 are expected later this year. At this moment, no decision has been reached as to who will perform for Belgian next year, nor who will be in charge of selection the entrant(s).
