This year's choice has certainly stirred up positive emotions among many of Eurovision's fans, who see the possible entry making the top 10 in next year's contest. The bands increased popularity in Belgium, has certainly ticked many of the correct boxes locally. It would appear that it's fourth time lucky for the band who have been asked by the broadcaster on three other occasions.
After the announcement yesterday, the groups front man said of the possible song, that it would have to be 'universal', and that the band, "need to reach a very bright audience, lovers of commercial and alternative (music). That is a challenge, I must say, but we have already proven that as our songs get played on all radio stations".
