Breaking News | The Netherlands has been disqualified from Eurovision 2024!

Joost Klein, the representative from The Netherlands for the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, has been suspended from participating in the event. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) has investigated an incident involving Klein. This incident initially led to Klein missing his slot in the show’s penultimate dress rehearsal in Malmo, Sweden.

An official statement by the EBU follows:

The Dutch artist Joost Klein will not be competing in the Grand Final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

Swedish police have investigated a complaint made by a female member of the production crew after an incident following his performance in Thursday night’s Semi Final. While the legal process takes its course, it would not be appropriate for him to continue in the Contest.

We would like to make it clear that, contrary to some media reports and social media speculation, this incident did not involve any other performer or delegation member.

We maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards inappropriate behaviour at our event and are committed to providing a safe and secure working environment for all staff at the Contest. In light of this, Joost Klein’s behaviour towards a team member is deemed in breach of Contest rules.

The Grand Final of the 68th Eurovision Song Contest will now proceed with 25 participating songs.

Will be added as soon as it becomes available
