Belgium and the Eurovision Song Contest
Belgium is a special country at the Eurovision Song Contest. One year, the country is being represented by a participant chosen by French language broadcaster RTBF, the other year it's the Flemish broadcaster VRT who's responsible for appointing a participant. Katrien Verbeeck (25), better known as Kate Ryan, will represent Belgium at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest after winning the Flemish selection Eurosong 2006. After four preselection heats, two semifinals and a final, she was chosen to go to Athens with Je t'adore.

Kate Ryan
In 2002, Kate Ryan had a big international hit with her version of Mylène Farmer's Désenchantée. With songs like Libertine and Scream for more, Kate Ryan continued her success, which now resulted into representing her country at the Eurovision Song Contest. Her song is currently leading several polls and also leads esctoday.com's BigPoll for the semifinal of the contest, leaving Sweden and Bosnia & Herzegovina behind.

Je t'adore
The sum of all my fantasies
That�s everything you are to me
You came around and made my senses fly
Shook me up when you took me to the sky
Never thought that I could ever get this high

Je t�adore
And I can�t conceal it
Je t�adore
Anyone can see it
You give me just a little more
Of everything I�ve waited for

Je t�adore
Here�s my heart so take it
Je t�adore
Only you can break it
You got me fallen to the floor
Anyway you want I�m yours
Je t�adore

Bye bye to all the lies I�ve heard
You made a different kind of girl
You spun me out and you made my senses fly
Shook me up when you took me to the sky
Never thought that I could ever get this high

Je t�adore
And I can�t conceal it
Je t�adore
Anyone can see it
You give me just a little more
Of everything I�ve waited for

Je t�adore
Here�s my heart so take it
Je t�adore
Only you can break it
You got me fallen to the floor
Anyway you want I�m yours

oeh oeh oeh
je t�adore

You�re the rush that I missed
Made a wish that I�d feel a kiss
Just like this

Je t�adore
Yeah you made me feel it
Je t�adore
And I really mean it
You give me just a little more
Of everything I�ve waited for
(Everything I ever waited for)
Je t�adore
Here�s my heart so take it
Je t�adore
Baby don�t you break it
You got me fallen to the floor
Anyway you want I�m yours
Je t�adore!
