Eurovision Song Contest 2017: Belguim - "City Lights" By Blanche

Eurovision 2017 – Belguim

The Belguim song is called “City Lights” and performed by Blanche.

ARTIST

Ellie Delvaux, now known as Blanche, will represent Belgium in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest with the song City Lights. Broadcaster RTBF announced Blanche as Belgium’s representative late last year. The singer co-wrote her entry for Kyiv with singer-songwriter Pierre Dumoulin.

SONG

Over the past few months Blanche has been working on her latest release, City Lights, with Pierre Dumoulin, lead singer of the group Roscoe. Roscoe won the Octave Award for Best Album of the Year on two occasions, in 2012 and 2015.

OPINION

Wow! What an old-sounding voice for such a young girl. Although I do like it, I feel like it’s missing something. Maybe if she upped the key earlier in the song it would stop the boredom setting in. It is quite current and she’s definitely very talented.

PREDICTION

I think this could go either way. People will either love it or hate it. I hope it qualifies but I can’t see it doing so well in the final and will be middle of the right hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

‘All alone in the danger zone

Are you ready to take my hand?

All alone in the flame of doubt

Are we going to lose it all?

 

I could never leave…you in the city lights

I could never beat…the storm in your eyes,

The storm in your bright eyes

 

All alone in the danger zone

Are you ready to take my hand?

All alone in the flame of doubt

Are we going to lose it all?

 

Looking in between…the space in the city lights

All we ever seen is stars in your eyes

The stars in your dark eyes

 

All alone in the danger zone

Are you ready to take my hand?

All alone in the flame of doubt

Are we going to lose it all?

 

Let’s put some light in to our lives

Light keep us down until we rise

They threw some light in to our lives

 

All alone in the danger zone

Are you ready to take my hand?

All alone in the flame of doubt

Are we going to lose it all?

 

All alone in the danger zone

Are you ready to take my hand?

All alone in the flame of doubt

Are we going to lose it all?

To lose it all?

To lose it all?
