Belgium and Eurovision Song Contest
Are you a fan of Eurovision? At BrusselsLife, we are! Let's have a look at the previous Belgian participations in the Eurovision Song Contest!

J'aime la vie 

More than twenty years ago, on Saturday 3th May 1986, the Belgian Sandra Kim won the Eurovision Song Contest in Bergen. She is the first, and until now the only, Belgian winner ever .

Top rankings

In 1978 and 2003, we ended up second on the podium. In 1978, Jean Vallée and his "L'amour ça fait chanter La vie"  missed the first place. Twenty-five years later, Urban Trad earned the second place with Sanomi, a song with lyrics in an imaginary language.

BrusselsLife's favourites

There are also some songs that we have forgotten but that we listen to again every year with a bit of nostalgia. Among them, La voix est libre (1995) from Frédéric Etherlinck, Judy & Cie (1976) from Pierre Rapsat or Un peu de poivre, un peu de sel (1966) from Tonia. And our favorite, Mélanie Cohl, with her song Dis Oui, who finished sixth in 1998 in Birmingham.


Belgium, one point

Belgium has also finished a couple of times with a very low amount of points. For instance, in 2000, Nathalie Sorce and Envie de Vivre placed last with only 2 points in Stockholm.



In 2013, the RTBF has chosen Roberto Bellarosa, The Voice Belgium 2012 winner, with his song Love Kills to represent Belgium in Malmö.
