Through the summer, Belgian national broadcaster VRT has shown its intention for selecting the country’s representative for Eurovision 2023 through a TV national final. However, today it was confirmed that there will be no open registration for the interested artists but VRT is going to choose the participants of its national final!

Gerrit Kerremans, music coordinator at VRT, has revealed at songfestival.be that due to the late decision for a national final – Eurosong 2023, there won’t be an open registration for those interested. Instead, the competing participants for Belgium’s representation at the 67th Eurovision Song Contest will be directly selected by the Flemish-speaking Belgian national broadcaster VRT, which has already came into contact with record labels and artists that it wants to attend Eurosong 2023.

The dates are still unknown, along with the remaining information for the national final, because all those are going to be clarified through official announcements.
