Belgium 2011: Wallonia goes a capella

One of the five countries making their pick for Düsseldorf tonight was Belgium, notorious for making bad moves in Eurovision.

This year they invited all of their unsigned talent through an online qualification round, crowned with a live broadcast to find one winner out of the fourteen finalists. As the internet generation attacks the national final, did that result in new, exciting sounds?

Well, judge for yourselves.

So much for new and exciting. Mix Manhattan Transfer with the 2007 Belgian disco entry and you will pretty much get the 2011 entry.

Vocally talented, perhaps. But somewhere in Latvia, Cosmos will remember their time under the sun in Athens and laugh their lips off.
