The 19-year old Lodens who is also a 3-time Jujitsu World Champion was in shock after they were announced winners. He went emotional and later one praised other finalists for their excellent performance.
“I am happy to be a three-time world jujitsu champion, but winning ‘Belgium’s Got Talent’ with Natascha is just fantastic,” he said. “I never expected this, and it feels so great,” Lodens exclaimed.
His dance partner Van Es, on the other hand attributed their victory to her many years of training in acrobatics and their good connection to the audience.
“It was a strong line-up in the finals, with 11 other great acts,” said Van Es. “So it really came unexpected. We gave everything on that stage for the last time, and I think we managed to make the audience emotionally involved, that we just made this tiny chance to win,” said Van es.
Meanwhile, Lodens revealed that he will use part of their prize to visit the Philippines with his mom.
With the prize, I would visit the Philippines with my mum, use some of it with the family, and the rest, I’ll save it for my future,
Her Filipina mother meanwhile thanked all Pinoys in Belgium for the support they gave to the duo.
Salamat po sa lahat ng mga Belgian at mga kababayan kong Pinoy na sumuporta kina Ian at Natascha. Napakalaking tulong po ang nagawa nyo para sila ay manalo,
