Emile opened the third show with Diep In Mijn Lijf, a fragile pop song. Laura Omloop (Belgian candidate last year) was charmed by Emile’s appearance and liked the fact that the song starts as a ballad and ends up being a rock song.
Another judge, Stan Van Samang, was left with mixed emotions; he thought that Emile was a great performer but felt that the song was just a bridge too far for Emile’s voice.
Then Jill & Lauren took the stage with the catchy dance-song Get Up. One of the judges, Walter Grootaers, thought that their voices blended perfectly and that the girls were a match made in heaven.
Also, Ralf Mackenbach (winner of last year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest) was nothing but positive about their act on stage and stated that the song had a great international appeal.
Although the jury of "ex-Juniors" chose Emile as their favourite, all the other members preferred Jill & Lauren. Afterwards, Jill almost couldn’t believe they won but she also found that Emile was a worthy opponent who actually deserved to be in the finals too. Lauren was also delighted and said she had a lot of fun on stage.
