Well, Belgium went and surprised everyone this year on Eurovision 2016 with a bit of an off-center entry via Loïc Nottet called ‘Rhythm Inside’. Even UK Eurovision commentator Graham Norton didn’t think Europe would warm to the electronic quirky queer track, but nevertheless, ‘Rhythm Inside’ took a respectable 4th place in the Eurovision Grand Final – which is really saying something. However considering the massive success of ‘Royals’ by Lorde, one can see why this track would go over a treat with the European voting public.
Artists like Loïc Nottet is what make Eurovision so special. I literally knew nothing about this fair-skinned beau from Belgium, but as soon as I saw this performance, I became an instant fan. I think you will too. A quick glance at Loïc Nottet’s Wikipedia page tells me he was a contestant on The Voice Belgium and it looks like ‘Rhythm Inside’ is the first taster of original music from this Belgium beaut. I’m paying attention. My eyes and ears are locked onLoïc Nottet’s now like a hawk.
In a nutshell – ‘Rhythm Inside’ is SO SO electroqueer, we are just loving everything about it. It’s been awhile since we used that stamp too, we don’t christen artists with that blessing too often nowadays.
