Eurovision Song Contest

Selection

RTBF announced on 15 September 2021 that they had internally selected Jérémie Makiese to represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022; the first broadcaster to do so for the 2022 edition.[4]

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. Belgium was placed into the second semi-final, held on 12 May 2022, and performed 16th of the 18 countries in that show.[5][6]
