Charley says ARTIST! Katy Satyn

Katy Satyn must be one of the most underrated singers to come out of a reality show in Flanders.

In 2005 Katy participated in Star Academy. Having already gotten to the final of Stars In Their Eyes in 1998 with ‘I Know Him So Well’, she’d been one of the main contenders all along. She was the first to get to sing a solo and was chosen to duet with Bonnie Tyler. Unfortunately Katy never got to perform Lara Fabian’s ‘Je T’Aime‘, which you can see her rehearsing above, in the closing part of the final as she finished third behind Katerine Avgoustakis and Afi Oubaibra.

Three years later we finally got some music out of Katy. She won the first heat of Eurosong 2008 with ‘Magical Sensation‘, think Slovakia 2010 with a beat behind it. The song was written by former Melodifestivalen contestants Sarek, who would later release the song themselves as ‘Magiska Sekunder‘. Sadly, Katy stranded in the semi-finals and her entry failed to chart. Once again, the dream was over before it had properly begun.

These days Katy is still working as a nurse. Last year this ironically gave her the most media attention she’d gotten in ages as she was one of the main characters on hospital reality show ‘De Verpleeg-sterren‘.

As far as music is concerned, she is now performing with coverband Het Swingschaap. She has also become a regular at Het Witte Paard, a revue which runs at the Belgian coast every summer.

It’s not the success story she, and us along with her, may have hoped for, but at least she’s still singing.
