Originally from Mons, Belgium, 18 year-old Eliot will represent his home country at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. His song 'Wake Up' was written by Pierre Dumoulin, the creative force behind 'City Lights', the melancholic pop ballad sung by Blanche that placed fourth at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eliot Vassamillet was discovered in season 7 of The Voice Belgique, and Pierre Dumoulin reached out immediately.

"Pierre made me listen to a demo of what Wake Up would become, and I loved it straight away," Eliot explains. "We talked about the song’s themes together. Wake Up is a call to young people to be active and rally together for a better world. We want to send that positive message of friendship and open-mindedness."

Wake Up

English

I wake up every night
I can't find anyone to pray
somewhere in the light
Changing all up

I 'm afraid, on the side
Looking out for the lines to say
Someone has the light
Feeding our fire

I came to fight I came to fight over you
Don’t want your lies don’t want your lies I need truth
I came to fight I came to fight over you
No one will cry, no one will cry if it’s true

I’ll wait for the sign
I can't find anyone to stay
But there’s something in the light
Saving our lives?

And I can't face you now
No I won't break you down
If I can't find you
I won't hide you
It's not what I do

I came to fight I came to fight over you
Don’t want your lies don’t want your lies I need truth
I came to fight I came to fight over you
No one will cry, no one will cry if it’s true
