Today, we shall take a look at the Belgian representative and “introduce” him to the fans. Belgium is sending Roberto Bellarosa to sing in Malmö with his song “Love Kills” in the penultimate position of the first semi-final on the 14th of May. Good luck Belgium!!
Roberto Bellarosa was internally selected by VRT, and this was confirmed when VRT officialy announced him as the artist on 16th of November. A month later, on the 16th of December, a radio show was broadcast to decide which song would represent Belgium in Eurovision. Two of the songs were in English, the other was in French. A combination of both the public’s vote and the votes from a jury mad up the final result and “Love Kills” was announced the winner.
“Love Kills” is a pop song about a break-up. Bellarosa sings how Cupid’s arrow “shot right through her [the woman in question] heart and rocked her to the core” and how it caused her to “fall like she’s never fell before”. Then Roberto asks us to “give him something he can feel” because he can’t feel anything due to the fact that love has “killed” him. This is repeated several times throughout the song.
Here are some opinions:

Great and amazing, 10/10 – Nijat from Azerbaijan
I liked it since the first time I listened to it, it sounds amazing in my opinion, 9.5/10 – Joel from Catalonia
