Interviewed earlier by ABS CBN, Ian, whose mother is a Filipina from Quezon City, said his training in jujitsu helped him prepare for the competition. Ian Lodens is a jujitsu world champion and the discipline in the sport is definitely an advantage for him in his Belgium’s Got Talent performance.

Meanwhile, Natascha Van Es was overwhelmed by the response they received as early as after their audition. She said they had been practicing a lot not to disappoint the people who have vowed their support for them.

“We are training a lot now, almost everyday, because we want to improve our element. We are also looking it up, try new stuff and if it works out, that’s good. But we have to do it a thousand times before we go on stage,” said Natascha as quoted by ABS CBN News.
