Iris to have a busy summer with performances and TV appearances

She didn’t manage to qualify for the final of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, but that hasn’t stopped the career of the young Iris representing Belgium this year. Her schedule for the next few months reveals a busy summer, which also includes a performance with Tom Dice.

The Belgium broadcaster has internally selected 17 year old Iris to represent them at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. A national final containing two songs gave the TV viewers the oppertunity to select the participating song. They chose Would You? as the Belgian entry for Baku.

In the first semi-final Iris finished 17th with 16 points and as such had to leave the contest without participating in the final, which Belgium has only been qualified for once in the past 8 years. That was in 2010 with Tom Dice singing Me And My Guitar. Iris’ summer schedule reveals that she on the 29th of July will be performing together with Tom Dice at the Suikerrock festival.
