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

Eurovision 2022: The Netherlands’ first rehearsal!

The next country that takes the stage is The Netherlands with the amazing S10 and her song “De Diepte“.

About S10

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.

The Rehearsal

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.

Below you can watch a small clip from The Netherland’s first rehearsal from Tik Tok:

Netherlands: Without the “laser” effects in Turin!

S10 and the Dutch delegation, will travel to Turin with a different stage perspective for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

As the singer said in the Dutch talk show “Matthijs gaat door”, the laser effects that were used in the first live performance of her song “De Diepte“, will not accompany her performance in Turin.

Specifically, S10 said about her staging:

Yes, we could do it like that there as well… but that is not the plan. This (the lasers) was an idea of the talkshow.

The experienced team behind S10, for which you can learn more here, seems to want to surprise the fans of the contest and take the song to a different path from that of the first live performance.

You can remember the first live performance of “De Diepte” by S10 below:

The Netherlands will performe in number 8 of the running order in the first semi-final on May 10, and as of now the betting odds consider her qualification for the Final almost granted.
