May 2009 sees the 3rd edition of Forum Song Contest (FSC), held in Brussels, Belgium after Lasgo's win in the previous, second edition.

21 countries participated in the third FSC, meaning a new record. Israel and Portugal made their first appearance while Sweden returned to the contest. On the other hand Finland and Malta withdrew from the competition, with the latter only returning roughly four years later.

After a third-to-last finish in FSC 2, the United Kingdom rose back to fame and celebrated its second FSC victory, thanks to Lily Allen and her song "Not Fair". Spain and Russia completed the top three. On the other side of the scoreboard, Poland scored its second "red lantern" in its second participation.

The Host City Edit

Brussels is the de facto capital city of the European Union and the largest urban area in Belgium.  Brussels has grown from a 10th-century fortress town founded by Charlemagne's grandson into a metropolis of more than one million inhabitants. Since the end of the Second World War, Brussels has been an important center for international politics. It hosts the main institutions of the European Union, and the headquarters of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Thus, Brussels is the polyglot home of many international organisations, politicians, diplomats and civil servants. Although historically Dutch-speaking, Brussels has become increasingly francophone. Today most inhabitants are native French-speakers, although both languages have official status.

Peter Van de Veire is a well known radio personality in Flanders. In 1993 Van de Veire started working for a local television station before moving on to host Studio.KET on the children's channel Ketnet. In 1999 he became host of De Afrekening, a popular chart show on the youth-oriented channel Studio Brussel. After a brief period where he presented the lunchtime slot on that same channel he was offered his own morning show, De Grote Peter Van de Veire Ochtendshow, which he presented up until September 2008. He briefly returned to television to host De Provincieshow, followed by his own music-themed chat show, Peter Live, which began airing in October 2008 on één. Outside of his radio career, Van de Veire performs live with Gerrit Kerremans in De Peter Van de Veire Love Show.

Maureen Louys may be familiar to some ESC fans as she was the host of the 2005 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. She was an obvious choice as her hosting 4 years ago was very well received and Maureen said in an recent interview that she is honored and proud to be selected as the host for the May edition of the FSC event.
