"Je t'adore" ("I Adore You") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006, performed in English (with only the title in French) by Kate Ryan. It was the seventh song which was performed in this Contest and the 999th by counting all songs which have ever performed on Eurovision Song Contest. "Je t'adore" was released in 2006 as the lead single from Ryan's third studio album Alive (2006).

Song information[edit]

The song was performed in the semi-final, as Belgium had not qualified for the final at the 2006 Contest. On the night, it was performed seventh, following Albania's Luiz Ejlli with "Zjarr e ftohtë" and preceding Ireland's Brian Kennedy with "Every Song Is a Cry for Love". At the close of voting, it had received 69 points, with a maximum of 8 points given by Malta, placing 12th in the 23-strong field and missing the final - thus ensuring that Belgium would have to qualify through the semi-final at their next appearance.

The song itself is a love song in a disco style, with Ryan expressing her love and occasionally lapsing into French to sing "je t'adore".

The performance was notable on the night for the neon-tubed microphone stands that Ryan variously sang and danced with, each being moved around by the backing dancers. Pre-Contest publicity had credited Ryan with a strong song, however this was not borne out in voting. As a small consolation, the presenter charged with announcing the Belgian votes on the night of the final held up a cardboard sign with the words "We Love Kate Ryan" on it - prompting derisive comments from Terry Wogan, who during the contest said the song sounded like "Shut that door" instead of "Je t'adore".
