Esctoday.com had the opportunity to talk to Axel Hirsoux right after he won the final of Eurosong 2014. Axel won the grand final of Eurosong 2014 with this ballad Mother and will get the honor to represent Belgium at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen.
Congratulations Axel with your victory!
Thank you very much.
You just won the big competition of Eurosong 2014 and the Eurovision ticket to Copenhagen. How do you feel now?
I have no words to describe my feelings. It’s a dream that came true. My new life has just began.
How was your reaction when you heard your song for the first time?
My first reaction was WOW! What a song! I was very happy with it. It suits perfect with my voice.
Within two months you will fly the Belgian flag in Copenhagen. Did you hear the other songs that have been selected for the competition?
I have always been a Eurovision fan and of course I have heard most of them. I have no favorites but I like a lot Italy, Sweden,..
The dancer who accompanied you on stage is a very professional choreographer and dancer in Belgium. Will you take her to Copenhagen?
I think she will be with me on Eurovision stage.
Your song is in English. Your are French speaking. Will you make a French version of it or maybe a version in Dutch?
I don’t think so. It’s not about the language its everything about music.
The team of Esctoday.com thanks Axel for the interview and wishes him best of luck at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen.
