Vooruit chief Conner Rousseau reached the final of the popular VTM show The Masked Singer. The politician returned home on Friday with a bronze medal and many reactions. Some praise Rousseau’s voice, while others believe that the (good) politician does not belong in an entertainment program. Earlier today let’s Our experts are talking. Now it’s your turn.
Chantal Girts: Bart Tomlin also participated in the program last year. Everyone does whatever they want in their spare time, regardless of whether you work in politics or somewhere else. By the way, this program was filmed during the summer of last year. Then there was no energy crisis, no war in Ukraine.”
Paul Potsen: If it wasn’t related to his highly paid position as a politician, I wouldn’t have a problem with that. But if – as part of the government – you have to make decisions to literally get the light in Flemish houses, and you don’t give a house because you have records, then you don’t deserve to be a politician and certainly not the “singer”.
Politics must reflect society. Sometimes seriousness is required and sometimes the bridle has to be released.
Cindy Vanelderen: Politics must reflect society. Sometimes seriousness is required and sometimes the bridle has to be released. To be a human being. A man or a woman among the people. Connor understood that well. I hope others will crawl out of their ivory towers now.”

Christine Leclerc: “Every bird sings like it’s beak. Some politicians gain fame and respect for their sharp ideas, moral leadership, meticulous knowledge of the files and their maturity. Others sing dressed as a bunny. All alone. “The Masked Singer” is a popular show. More people are watching “TMS” than They actually know Conner Russo as a politician. A smart move to generate additional awareness.”
Carlo Blankart: Politicians who are trying to gain more fame and popularity through grassroots programs are not a good investment in our politics and economy. Isn’t it time to change not only the global economy, but global politics as well? Let’s make sure that we only make competent politicians come to power instead of popiejobie Which will give us more headaches in the future…”
