Biography

Pas de Deux was  a Belgian band, best known for their participation in the 1983 Eurovision Song Contest, and the controvers, about the lyrics,  surrounding their selection as that year’s Belgian representatives.
Pas de Deux were one of nine acts chosen for the Belgian Eurovision selections in 1983. Initially, each act performed three songs and the best from each was chosen by a jury to go forward to the final.  When it became apparent during the voting that “Rendez-vous” would be the clear winner with the jury, audience bewilderment turned to anger, and many walked out in disgust before “Rendez-vous” was reprised. Pas de Deux themselves appeared untroubled by the reaction, seeming to be quite amused by the furore. After Eurovision “Rendez-vous” reached the Belgian top 30, but a follow up single, “Manimeme”, went unnoticed and the group soon disbanded. Verdin went on to become a video artist and van Roy a television journalist, while Peyskens continued singing and acting.
