The five participants of Belgium’s Eurosong 2016 were revealed exactly a month ago. The Flemish broadcaster VRT has now released more information about the expert jury that will help Belgium find its representative for Stockholm, as well as how can the public and fans experience the selection live.
The Jury members are:
- Presentation Show 1 (3 January): Stijn Kolacny, the conductor of the Belgian women choir Scala, and Alexander Rybak, the winner of Eurovision Song Contest 2009.
- Presentation Show 2 (10 January): Tom Helsen, Belgian artist, and Beverly Jo Scott, the lyricist of Belgium’s 2015 entry Rhythm inside
- Final (17 January): Hadise, Turkey’s representative in Eurovision 2009, and Christer Björkman, the Swedish Head of Delegation and the Executive Producer of Melodifestivalen.
These jury members will only give their advise and opinions and will not have any voting rights in the contest. The winner will be chosen by televoting as well as by ten international juries.
