The Netherlands: O’G3NE will release their Eurovision song in March

25

“Make ’em wait!” That’s what we’re hearing from Dutch sisters Lisa, Amy and Shelley — O’G3NE. They revealed today that they’ve chosen their song for Kyiv. The catch is that we have to wait until March to hear it!

The news comes on the same day as the Semi Final allocation draw. There, we found out The Netherlands will be performing in the second semi final on May 11.

In their first reaction, the sisters said: 

“We would really want to get the title to The Netherlands. To make this happen we should win from everyone in the competition, so it does not matter who we will face on our road to it. Our focus is on our own strength and we are really busy to find a perfect team around us.

After a long process we know now which song we will sing to represent The Netherlands in Kyiv. We are really enthusiastic and right now we are busy making an amazing track from the demo we have right now. In the beginning of March, we will proudly release our song to the people.”

At the start of the month, the group revealed they had three songs to choose from. There’s no more information as to which one they have selected — could they have dumped their dad’s song?

The Netherlands to perform in the second semi final

Earlier today in Kyiv, we learned O’G3NE will perform in the first half of the second semi final. This will be the first time since Joan Franka in 2012 that the Netherlands will perform in the second semi final.

Whilst the first semi has mostly given them good luck since Anouk’s success in Malmo, there’s still good news. France and Germany, both friendly voting countries, will be voting in the Dutch semi.

So, will the girls go with a ballad like many of their 2017 countries so far, or will they bring something up-tempo? What kind of song would you like to see O’G3NE sing at Eurovision 2017? Are you excited to see what they’ll bring to the stage? Let us know in the comments below!
