Belgium in Eurovision Song Contest Odds

Two public broadcasters in Belgium alternate their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest. RTBF was responsible for arranging the Belgian Eurovision entry in 2017 meaning that it is the turn of Flemmish broadcaster VRT in 2018.

Belgium was the first country to announce their artist selection for Eurovision in Lisbon this year. Flemmish broadcaster VRT have announced they have internally selected Laura Groeseneken to represent Belgium. Laura's participation was announced on talkshow, Van Gils & Gasten, where she performed an English version of ”Amar Pelos Dois”, the winning song of Eurovision 2017.

Under the nickname Lola, Laura Groeseneken has collaborated with the dubstep and electropop DJ-collective AKS (Addicted Kru Sound), delivering vocals for some of their compositions. The group has also worked with popular Belgian artist Selah Sue, and created an official remix for singer Jamie Lidell. As AKS & Lola, their first single Give it back was released in 2011. Laura Groeseneken made her first major public performance at 007 In Concert, at which she performed “Tomorrow never dies” in honour of the 50th anniversary of the James Bond-franchise. Since 2014, Laura is a regular vocalist and keyboard player in the band of well-known Belgian musician Ozark Henry (Piet Goddaer), impressing the audience with her powerful voice. And together with Alex Callier of the popular band Hooverphonic she wrote the song “Gravity”.

Regarding the song, she mentioned that “I wrote my song “A Matter Of Time” myself, together with Alex Callier from the Belgian band Hooverphonic and with the French producer Maxime Tribeche. For me, the song is timeless and elegant and it has a melancholy side that tells a strong story: it’s about being able to see beauty in things that are fleeting. The tension of watching something precious slip away and finding the beauty in that. It makes you appreciate things more and you realize that there’s also great beauty in the little things that we have.”

“A Matter Of Time” was written by Sennek with Alex Callier of Hooverphonic and producer Maxime Tribeche. A Matter Of Time is an evocative song with a melancholy tone and a strong story. "The song describes the way you can find beauty in transience, how you can see the beauty in something precious that gets broken", explains Sennek. The message she wants to convey with her song is that adversity and bad experiences can become opportunities for people to grow and to see that great beauty can be found even in little things.

“A Matter of Time” was produced by Paris-based producer Maxime Tribeche. It was recorded at ICP Studio in Elsene, Belgium. Sennek said: "What an amazing feeling to be doing this with my own song. It’s been a fantastic experience to be able to collaborate with Alex and Maxime, two very talented artists. To get to share ideas and opinions until we finally managed to come up with a composition that everyone is proud of. The song fits me like a glove: the melancholy feeling, the vocals, the contrast between dark and light... And I think a song’s message is so important for its potential to reach people."
