Katerine Avgoustakis has won tonight's final of Star Academy in Flanders. Katerine, who is half Flemish, half Greek, earlier participated in the Belgian Eurovision Song Contest selections Eurosong 2002 with the girl band Indiana.

Katerine Avgoustakis defeated Pim, Katy and Afi in the final show of the first edition of Star Academy, broadcast on Flemish commercial broadcaster VTM. She survived the first round with the performance of Love is an angel, in duet with Flemish dance act Sylver, and the second round with No Doubt's Don't speak. With Britney's Toxic, she defeated Afi in the last televoting round.

Another former Eurosong participant participated in Star Academy. Katia Berlingieri, who finished fourth in the first semifinal of Eurosong 2004 with the song Don't be scared, did not reach tonight's final.

Together with Ingrid De Smedt and Viola Furleo, Katerine Avgoustakis participated in Eurosong 2002. The trio Indiana finished fifth in the fourth semifinal with the song Imitation love, written by Jim Dyke and Scott English. The latter also wrote Where are you?, the United Kingdom's 1998 Eurovision Song Contest entry, performed by Imaani.

Whether Avgoustakis will participate in Eurosong 2006 or not will most likely become one of the hottest topics among the Belgian Eurovision Song Contest fans.
