Sergio, Belgian representative in the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest and his duet partner Sandrine André have won the final of the TV show Just the two of us. The programme features professional singers that are joined by other celebrities that never sang before. In the final round, the actress and the songer defeated television host Rani de Coninck and singer Günther Neefs whose father represented Belgium in the contest twice in 1967 and 1969.

During the final, the duos performed two songs they already sang in the other shows. Sergio and Sandrine chose the songs Speed of sound (Coldplay) and Elephant love medley (Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor) while Rani and Günther performed Jennifer Lopez' Let's get loud and Goie morgen, morgen. This song was the Belgian entry in the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest. Actually, it was recorded by Nicole and Hugo, who would come last two years later with Baby, baby but since they fell ill it was sung by Jacques Raymond and Lily Castel in Dublin.They finished in 14th position.

If only the professional jury had had decided the winner, Rani de Conick and Günther Neefs would have won the contest. Nevertheless, the telvoters awarded the victory to Sergio and Sandrine.

Some further participants from Belgian national finals had been among the contestants: Claudia Caluwé (2nd in 2002 with Spark), Chadia Cambie (8th in the third semi final in 1996 with Hou van mij) and Isabelle A as part of the group Natural High (7th in 1999 with Finally).

Sergio, backed by the Ladies, finished 13th in 2002 with the song Sister. Louis Neefs finished 7th in 1967 with the song Ik heb zorgen and again 7th two years later with Jennifer Jennings.
