Netherlands: Duncan Laurence interested in hosting Eurovision if Joost Klein wins!

Joost Klein, the Dutch representative for Eurovision 2024, unveiled his entry “Europapa” a week ago. “Europapa” has grown in popularity in the Netherlands over the last week, with Dutch fans ecstatic about a strong performance in Malmö.

The excitement is so high that Duncan Laurence, the winner of Eurovision 2019, has publicly stated his desire to host Eurovision 2025 if Joost Klein wins in Malmö.

Specifically, Duncan Laurence mentions:

I like individuality and authenticity. That is Joost to the core. I think his song is great.

Europapa” is a major streaming success, with 1.2 million streams in the first 24 hours of release. In fact, Joost Klein surpassed Duncan Laurence’s record of one million Spotify streams in the first 24 hours of “Arcade’s” release.

The aforementioned cannot go unnoticed with Duncan Laurence saying:

It was about time that was broken. I’m glad Joost did that. We have known each other for quite a long time, we once attended the same event together. Joost is very good at dealing with media and social media, which will work greatly in his favor. I hope he wins and brings the Eurovision Song Contest back to the Netherlands. If that happens, I will sign up as a presenter.

I can put that so-called English accent of mine to good use for once, and I also speak a little bit of French.

The Netherlands will perform at the second half of the second semi-final on May 9.

Netherlands: Duncan Laurence was recruited to rescue “Burning Daylight”!

The situation with this year’s Dutch participation in the contest appears to be more serious than expected. After the official statment that the country’s public broadcaster (Avrotros) was forced to take, due to the wave of negative comments received after Mia & Dion‘s live appearances at the Eurovision pre parties, now the last winner of the Netherlands and composer of the song with which the two young artists will compete in Liverpool – Duncan Laurence, announces that was recruited to help them in the battle they have to fight in the first difficult semi-final.

Duncan Laurence, with a post on his social networks, informs his fans that he will postpone the planned release of his new song, as well as other obligations he had, since in the next period he will focus exclusively on Mia & Dion and how they will perform better their song, Burning Daylight, in Liverpool.

This statement comes after Eric van Stade, a representative of Avrotros, who on RTL Boulevard, described precisely the problem facing this year’s representatives of the country in the contest:

We know what’s wrong, the whole of Holland has seen it. The creative team working on it is now continuing, right at those points, to get the vocals right… There were two new artists, two new talents. Only this year we see that the step (they have to take) to the big stage is much bigger than in previous years when we worked with young talents.

We remind you that this year’s Dutch participation was internally selected by the country’s public television. However, the Netherlands seems to be considering changing the selection system next year and returning to the national final method.
