RTBF, the Belgian French speaking broadcaster has confirmed today that Ellie Delvaux aka Blanche will represent Belgium at the forthcoming 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv.
16 year old Ellie Delvaux will follow Loic Nottet’s footsteps and fly the Belgian flag at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. The young singer who is also known as Blanche, has competed in The Voice Belgium. Ellie hails from Brussels.
