The next country that takes the stage is The Netherlands with the amazing S10 and her song “De Diepte“.
S10 is the moniker of Stien den Hollander, a Dutch singer, rapper and songwriter.At just 21 years of age, the artist has made a name for herself as the darling of the Dutch alt-pop scene, winning over critics, amassing a loyal army of fans, and triumphing at prestigious awards ceremonies.
In 2016, S10 took it upon herself to write, record and self-release her first mini-album, Antipsychotica. Word of mouth led to the creative talent’s popularity to explode, resulting in a coveted record deal the following year, at the age of 17.With millions of streams to her name, collaborations with some of the Netherlands’ biggest artists and rave reviews from music critics, the headliner from Hoorn continues to forge her own path in the music industry.
This is the first of several female-led alt-pop/folk ballads this year, and it’s the first time Netherlands have sung in Dutch since 2010. They didn’t qualify on that occasion, but this song is something quite special.
S10 is Stien den Hollander, and her costume is a very stylish black dinner jacket that’s cropped at the front but has long tails at the back. Her staging is is a smoky plinth and some dramatic lighting, and it delivers real impact. The Dutch delegation seem very happy with that, and so they should.
