After the last 15 artists sang cover versions of Eurovision hits, four moved on to the semi-finals, while another four moved to the call back round. This was determined by points given by the jury.




To the semi-finals:

  • Petra – “All Kinds of Everything” (Dana) (92)
  • Yass – “L’oiseau et l’enfant” (Marie Myriam) (89)
  • Tisha Cyrus – “Düm Tek Tek” (Hadise) (86)
  • Axeela – “Believe” (Dima Bilan) (85)


To the call back round:

  • Day One – “Satellite” (Lena) (85)
  • Sil – “Where Are You?” (Imaani) (84)
  • Bandits – “Geef het op” (Clouseau) (83)
  • Mr. Jones – “Standing Still” (Roman Lob) (84)




  • Bastien – “Fly on the Wings of Love” (Olsen Brothers) (79)
  • Andrei Lugovski – “In a Moment Like This” (Chanée & N’evergreen) (75)
  • Maureen – “Ding-a-Dong” (Teach-In) (74)
  • Dina Rodrigues – “Ne partez pas sans moi” (Celine Dion) (71)
  • Soul Brothers – “Pupper on a String” (Sandie Shaw) (68)
  • Aelia – “Poupée de cire, poupée de son” (France Gall) (68)
  • Manuel Palomo – “Eres tú” (Mocedades) (63)


Veronica Codesal of the group Aelia, who represented Belgium in 2003 coming second with the group Urban Trad, did not make it through. Rumors have been flying about the masked group Day One, with speculations about the vocalist being 2006 Belgian representative Kate Ryan. Anyone familiar with her voice will agree that it is indeed her or a very good impersonator.



The call back show will air next Sunday, February 16, where the eight artists, selected for call back, will perform. So far, eight artists are in the semi-finals on February 23, March 2, and March 9, with more joining them after the call back round.

The selection will conclude on March 16, when the winner is selected and becomes Belgium’s representative for Eurovision 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
