And there we have it. Waylon has been dropping potential songs for Eurovision 2018 since Friday with the last one arriving tonight. Once again, the Dutch representative for Lisbon popped up on the De Wereld Draait Door talk show to premier “Thanks But No Thanks”.
Waylon “Thanks But No Thanks”
Before the ex-Common Linnet took to the stage, TV host Matthijs van Nieuwkerk hinted that this might be “the one”.
Like the previous four, track number five immediately sounds very Nashville and country. The first couplet starts slowly. But once the chorus hits the the song really starts going.
“Thanks But No Thanks” showcases what Waylon does best. This is the music he lives and breathes.
Following the performance, the in-studio guests were asked which of the five songs would get their vote for Eurovision. The result was virtually unanimous with most backing tonight’s effort.
Has Waylon saved the best for last? And more importantly, is this his Eurovision entry?
Presenter Matthijs commented that we will know the song tomorrow or maybe even tonight. Perhaps we should all keep an eye on social media. There just might be a clue as to Waylon’s choice.
“That’s How She Goes” will not go
Yesterday Waylon sang the fourth song “That’s How She Goes”.
However, internet users quickly discovered that the track is not completely new.
Mitchell Tenpenny published the same song three years ago on YouTube.
According to Elsevier Waylon could still use the song for Eurovision. They argue that since the track was never released commercially, it may not breach the EBU rules.
However, the publication points out that the Dutch crooner is unlikely to go with the track anyway. He previously stated he wants to sing a self-written track, which “That’s How She Goes” clearly isn’t.
We now have all fives songs. Tomorrow we will know which one will go to Lisbon. Which one do you want to see in Lisbon? Let us know in the comments below.
