Belgium's ten candidates for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest preselection are set to perform with some famous Eurovision stars of the past, as they prepare to be presented to the public once more in a special show on September 10th.

Power to the kids is the motto of Eurosong for Kids 2006, which will select one lucky act to represent Belgium in Romania later this year. For the first time since 2003, it is the turn of Flemish broadcaster VRT to choose the country's representative alone, after French-speaking broadcaster RTBF withdrew from the contest after last year's joint final.

On September 10th, the young performers will team up with the following famous names in the special introductory show:

  • Attic and Thor perform with Clouseau (Belgium 1991)
  • Nicolas and [email protected] perform with Kate Ryan (Belgium 2006)
  • Nikkie and Kristel perform with Belle Perez (Belgian Eurosong 1999, 2006)
  • Suzanne, Melissa and Arlieke perform with Spring (Eurosong 2006)
  • The Fireflies perform with Wouter (runner-up of Idol 2004)

During the show, the running order of the two semifinals will also be announced, along with the line-up of the professional jury. Marce Vanthilt, former jury bad guy will be absent, and fans will be keen to find out who will fill those shoes!
