26.09.10 . Udo to Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with J'imagine?
Is Flemish X-Factor winner Udo Mechels bidding to represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 on behalf of RTBF? Belgovision.com recognized his voice in the song J'imagine, submitted under the project name Double Vie to the Belgian Eurovision selections organized by Akamusic and RTBF.
J'imagine was written by Tom A. Baldwin, Ed Nanref and Yvan Lacomblez. The latter is - together with Lou Deprijk - responsible for the world hit Ça Plane Pour Moi of Plastic Bertrand. Behind Ed Nanref and Tom A. Baldwin most probably hide Stefaan Fernande, who already wrote several songs together with Udo, and Udo Mechels himself.

J'imagine is not the first song in French recorded by Udo, who was born in Brussels and who is the cousin of popular Brussels artist Anny Cordy. He earlier recorded Ik Mis Je Zo by Will Tura in a French version called Tu Me Manques à Mourir. His brand new album Barrières that was released earlier this week also features two songs in French.

J'imagine was uploaded on the website of Akamusic and RTBF under the project name Double Vie (double life) and only gathered 55 EUR financial support so far. In order to qualify for the second phase of the Belgian selections for the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 a candidate needs to obtain 20.000 EUR on the website Eurovision.rtbf.be. J'imagine by Double Vie can be heard by clicking this link.
