Belgium became the first 2024 Eurovision Song Contest participant country to announce their entrant when public broadcaster RTBF yesterday publicised their internal selection of Thomas "Mustii" Mustin.

Mustii, a singer and actor, is to become a permanent judge on Drag Race Belgique next year. He has published singles and two studio albums, 21st Century Boy and It's Happening Now.

In a Reel on the @eurovision Instagram page, Mustii said: "Hi, this is Mustii. I'm super happy, super proud to represent Belgium in Sweden next year at the Eurovision Song Contest. It's gonna be amazing. It's gonna be unbelievable. See you guys!"

Mustii told RTBF about his selection, "it's a challenge that I want to take on." When RTBF asked where in the ranking he wished to finish, he said, "[m]y goal is to make an impression no matter what. Above all, I want the performance to be fair, sincere and authentic. I also want to be comfortable in my skin and proud of my performance. That's the primary objective".

Eurovision 2024 is to occur in Malmö on May 7, 9, and 11; Swedish Loreen won this year's contest.
