"Envie de vivre" ("The Will to Live") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2000, performed in French by Nathalie Sorce.[1]

The song was performed tenth on the night, following Russia's Alsou with "Solo" and preceding Cyprus' Voice with "Nomiza". At the close of voting, it had received 2 points (all from Macedonia), placing last of 24 countries.

Sorce sings about the will to live and the power that it has, although she points out the difficulties of living in a world without love.[2]

Due to the expanded Contest, Belgium's poor recent record made them ineligible for participation in the 2001 Contest, but as a "passive country", they were invited to return for 2002. Thus, the song was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 2002 Contest by Sergio & The Ladies with "Sister".
