Eurovision 2023: Belgium’s First Rehearsal!

Just one place before the last one for today and it is Belgium‘s rehearsal, represented by Gustaph singing “Because of You“.

Who is Gustaph ?

Stef Caers, also known professionally as Gustaph, is 42 years old and he comes from the Flemish speaking part of Belgium. He is an experienced artist regarding the contest, since he has already participated before as a back vocalist for Senek in 2018 and for Hooverphonic in 2021. His debut in the music industry began in 2000 while he was studying in at the Royal Conservatory of Ghent and also he used to be a vocal coach.

Gustaph’s participation in Eurovision is considered to be one of the most unexpected participations, since he was an outsider in Belgium’s Eurosong. He was not the winner of either public’s vote (second) or jury’s vote (third). However the combination of the two results gave Gustaph the golden tickret for Liverpool, who actually beat Starlings by just one point.

No matter the fact that Gustaph has generally gathered negative reviews regarding his qualification, his flawless live performances at pre parties may proove the exact opposite, since he is currently at the odds-in’s eighth place for qualification.

The rehearsal

This is such a feelgood track, and Gustaph’s pink and white outfit is incredibly stylish. It’s a love-filled inspo bop about the people who never let us down, though good times and bad. Gustaph has his own flight of stairs, three backing singers, and an LED backdrop of vogueing, drag queens and all the people who make Gustaph’s world a better place. We’re having a Green Room dance, and can’t wait to see the crowd go mad for this next Thursday.
