Trijntje Oosterhuis’ song for Eurovision 2015, “Walk Along”, has just made its official debut on the Gouden Uren show on Dutch radio this morning.
Trijntje (or Traincha) was a guest on the show and briefly spoke to host Daniel Dekker and Cornald Maas about the song, which was written by Anouk. As for the song itself – well, we have to say we’re loving it!
Trijntje Oosterhuis – Walk Along
Trijntje mentioned that it took her a while to be convinced to do Eurovision, but she finally was okay with joining the list after Anouk and The Common Linnets did well!

But it was all about the song, and after hearing it we have just one word to say: AMAZING! Yes, you can tell that this was an Anouk song originally, but Traincha has definitely put her own touch to it. If you were to describe the song, you’d probably put it close to Anouk’s latest hit ”Places To Go‘; a sort of mid-to-uptempo number’. Our team also thinks it’s a bit like Molly’s song “Children of the Universe” from Eurovision 2014; let’s hope for Traincha’s sake that she does better at the end then Molly did!
One thing that may work in her favour is that it was also revealed that there are plans to ask Hans Pannekoek to do the staging once again; he was the mastermind behind the Common Linnets’ incredible performance. We could be in for something really special once again!
The song is also set to be performed for the first time on the Voice of Holland this Friday night on Dutch TV, as mentioned in our Wiwi Roundup – Team Netherlands are really working it this week!
Certainly, the Trijntje/Anouk combo has the potential to send sparks flying once they get to Vienna – especially since it looks like Anouk is going to be a bit of a pageant mom behind the scenes! But what do y’all think about the song? Are the Netherlands in with a chance of bettering “Calm After the Storm” this year, or could they be in trouble once again?
