Shownieuws reports that the Dutch entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy will be revealed on March 3.
RTL’s Shownieuws reported that the song that S10 will represent the Netherlands with at Eurovision will be revealed on March 3. AVROTROS has yet to confirm the date that the Netherlands will reveal their entry for the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.
The date reported by Shownieuws ties in with previous Dutch song reveals which have traditionally taken place during the first week of March. S10’s entry for Eurovision 2022 will be in Dutch, this will be the first time that the Netherlands will send a Dutch-language entry since 2010, when Sieneke performed Ik ben verliefd (Sha-la-lie).
Little information on the Dutch entry for Turin has been revealed so far. Back in December, the broadcaster announced that S10 would be representing the Netherlands. S10, stage name of Stien den Hollander, is a rising star in the alternative scene of the country. Her music discusses personal and difficult topics, such as her own struggle with mental health. All we know about her song for Turin so far is that she will be singing in Dutch.
A commission consisting of Dutch television commentators Jan Smit and Cornald Maas as well as radio-DJs Coen Swijnenberg and Sander Lantinga chose the Dutch entry for Eurovision 2022. Similarly to 2019, when The Netherlands’ winning entry was chosen, the group is more focused on the song itself, rather than the artist.
Last year, the Netherlands hosted the Competition in Rotterdam. The country was represented by Jeangu Macrooy with the Birth of a New Age taking the 23rd place.
