Kate Ryan heads a clutch of Belgian Eurovision stars who are nominated for the Belgian TMF awards this year.
Stars of both Belgian Eurosong selection shows and former Eurovision Song Contest performers are up for a variety of awards at the annual event, which this year is held on Saturday 14th October in Antwerp. Kate herself is nominated for a grand total of three awards: Best Video, Best Female Artist and Best Pop.
Besides Kate, Belle Perez (Eurosong 1999 / 2006), Katerine (Eurosong 2002 / 2006), Kaye Styles (Eurosong 2006) and Natalia (Eurosong 2004) are in the running for the top prizes in the Belgian music industry. Belle, Katerine and Kate are effectively in competition with each other once again in the category of Best Female. 1991 song contest representatives Clouseau are also in the lineup, for Best Pop, Best Video, and – for lead singer Koen Wauters – Best Male.
Kate is riding high after chart success for her latest single Alive, as it climbs to Number 10 in the Belgian charts this week. Could it be a portend of success at the TMF awards?
