Netherlands: Armin Van Buuren rules out Eurovision participation!

Armin van Buuren is not planning to send another entry for the Eurovision Netherlands selection.  The acclaimed DJ sent a song during the 2022 selection process together with singer Jaap Reesema which was rejected by the Dutch public broadcaster.

Furthermore, van Buuren explained that he feels he was mistreated by the Eurovision Selection Committee:

“We didn’t even hear whether it was a yes or a no.  In the end it wasn’t us, okay. But then we had to call someone to find out that it wasn’t us. That’s very strange, when I think they really wanted me to do it

AVROTROS responds

Dutch broadcaster has replied to the allegations made by Armin Van Buuren.  According to the public broadcaster spokeswoman, there was a communication problem between the parties involved and that AVROTROS talked with the DJ’s management in due time

At the time, his management was informed by Eric van Stade (General Director of AVROTROS)

In the end the Netherlands internally selected S10 with her song De Diepte.  S10 ended in 11th place in the Grand Final
