RTBF the French language broadcaster in Belgium have been left with a scheduling dilemma as Belgium is placed in semi final 1.
As we reported earlier in the month, RTBF had requested that Belgium be placed in the second semi final to ensure that there would not be a clash with the final of “The Voice Belgique”, however it appears that VRT the Dutch language broadcaster did not agree to this.
The issue with moving the date of contest is due to Natasha Saint Pierre’s involvement in The Voice as well as Eurovision. Natasha will be commentating on the contest for France 3, which means that the rearranging the date is troublesome. RTBF will now either have to bring forward the date of the final or postpone it to the week after Eurovision.
