Within Temptation lead vocalist Sharon den Adel has revealed to Holland’s Radio2 that the group was never approached by AvroTros to participate for the Netherlands at Eurovision. In earlier statements, Within Temptation said they had no interest in participating at the 60th Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna in May 2015. But Sharon now points out that it’s actually a matter of not being asked.
“The public opinion on who should represent the Netherlands is miles away from the opinion of the people that actually decide,” she said. Her claws were obviously pointed at AvroTros.
Within Temptation are a huge deal in the BeNeLux region, and have been on the Eurovision wishlist for the Netherlands for a looooooooooong time (seriously y’all – we have been waiting!). The fact they’ve even suggested they are interested in Eurovision is, for a large group of Dutch fans, just amazing.
Within Temptation recently released their new single “Whole World Is Watching“. They’re currently touring the UK, and they are nominated for the British AIM Awards. They will also start touring through North and Middle America soon.
