BELGIUM

There were 9 semi-finals, each consisting of 10 songs by 10 artists. The songs were voted on by an "expert" jury and by postcard voting. The top 3 songs of the jury and the winner of the postcard voting went on to the next semi-final. The other artists would try again in the next semi-final with another song. To make it to the final you had to "survive" three semi-finals. The songs from the semi-finals are presented below, but if you have details of which songs took part in which semi-finals or the voting results then please mail me: national_finals@hotmail.com
