About the Song

Talking about his song, Mustii mentioned the following:

Belgium: Mustii reveals new info about his Eurovision 2024 song!

In the traditional gathering conducting by OGAE Belgium, fans from the country had the chance to meet Mustii! The Belgian representative took photos with the members and answered their questions regarding the song that will represent Belgium in Malmö!

“It’s a bit of an absurd experience but I’m very happy to have been chosen ,” says Musti. “ It’s so huge. I work on the project day by day. At the moment I’m really into the visuals, but it’s very difficult for me to be here and not be able to tell you anything.I’m almost at the end… ”.

It was really early on, when the Belgian public broadcaster, RTBF, selected Mustii to represent the country in Eurovision. It was in the filming of the first season of Drag Race Belgium” (in July 2022).

Very early in the morning, I was in makeup, still a little sleepy… and the general director of the RTBF Content Department, Sandrine Roustan, asked me if I wanted to represent Belgium. It woke me up suddenly! It didn’t take me long to say yes .”

He admits that his song was not written with Eurovision in mind:

“I composed the song with my team and it is Belgo-Belgian with Flemish, Walloon and Brussels residents. I didn’t want to format something for Eurovision, it really comes from sessions that are linked to my next album. It will fit into an overall aesthetic that I have been working on for several months. It will have a particular resonance. The one I chose has the potential to be developed on a big stage like Eurovision. Like the album, it will be something very personal, undoubtedly one of the most personal things I have done so far. In a month, give or take a few days, you will know everything.”

In the end, finishing with the questions, he stated that he is not standing still and he talked about the importance of the Eurovision Song Contest:

“If I got into these artistic professions like cinema, acting or music, it was to experience extraordinary things and to never stay in my comfort zone. A great way to confront such a barnum or to meet other artists is to participate in Eurovision. It’s an extraordinary platform where I will be able to present my project to an audience that I usually do not have access to. I want to be proud. Of course, we always aim for first place, but above all, I want my performance to be impactful, touching and fair, both artistically and aesthetically.”

As we’ve previously informed you, Mustii had the chance to record the final chorus of his song, alongside hs fans. More than 1.000 voice samples were sent to RTBF in just a week, mainly from countries outside Belgium.

We remind you that Belgium’s song will be released in February. Mustii retains his musical identity in the Eurovision stage and his song be pop with some dark elements but also new wave and rock, according to his music style, which his fans are accustomed to.

Belgium: Gustaph unveils Eurovision staging details

Belgium’s representative Gustaph has set in train his intense preparations for the 2023 contest as he explicitly states in Liverpoolecho:

“I can’t tell you too much but when we first saw the stage, I knew we had to make something much more dynamic than what we did in Belgium.It’s going to be different. The idea of static stairs won’t be there anymore and there will be much more interaction with the visuals and the performance as well. Adding to that, we’re now going to have three backing vocalists. The song is written from a gospel perspective so three voices are going to make it bigger than it already is.”

In the interview, Gustaph cites Eurovision 1998 UK’s entry Where are you now? by Imaani as one of his all-time favorite Eurovision performances,as the song’s strong house-music elements and “deep lyricism” played a determining role in his turning into a Eurovision aficionado.

Last weekend,Gustaph made an appearance in RTL’s show Humberto in order to promote his 2023 entry called “Because of You”.The show,which aired on RTL4, received quite a positive response from the audience as it was watched by an average of 488,000 viewers and even reached a high of 1.400.o00 viewers throughout the course of its broadcast.

Gustaph was chosen to represent Belgium after having being crowned the winner of  Eurosong 2023,Belgium’s first national final in seven years.Despite the fact that he did not manage to win the televote,the jury’s votes were more than enough to give him the golden ticket to Liverpool.However,he is already familiar with the Eurovision stage,as he was a backing vocalist both for Sennek (2018) and Hooverphonic (2021).

Gustaph is going to sing his song “Because of You” in the first half of the second semi-final in this year’s Eurovision,scheduled to take place on May 11.
