In recent months Trijntje Oosterhuis, the Dutch singer for Eurovision 2015, and Anouk, the Dutch singer at Eurovision 2013, have had a lot of private discussions. As you know, Anouk wrote “Walk Along”, the song that Trijntje will sing at ESC. They’ve obviously been having some other discussions, as today it emerged that Anouk will take up Trijntje’s spot as a coach on the upcoming sixth season of “The Voice of Holland“. AD.nl reports that Trijntje wants to focus on Eurovision and perfecting her performance of “Walk Along”.

Trijntje, who served as a coach on seasons 3, 4 and 5, isn’t the only one leaving. Eurovision 2014 singer Ilse Delange, who coached during the fourth and fifth seasons, is also leaving. Her star just keeps on rising, so we aren’t surprised she wants to focus on her own music. (Plus it’s well-known that she and Anouk hate each other). Miss Montreal, who isn’t Canadian, will take her spot.

“We are very pleased to welcome Anouk and Miss Montreal,” Erland Galjaard, program director of RTL Netherlands, said. “They are not only great coaches, but also two professional women who are an example for many musicians and singers.”

Are you sad that Trijntje is exiting stage right and making room for Anouk? Do you think they planned this while discussing Trijntje’s ESC song? Let us know in the comments box below!

There is no fight between Ilse and Anouk, why people always come up with that?

If Anouk doesn’t like Ilse’s music doesn’t mean she hates the singer. Same way around too,

Ilse does NOT hate Anouk. Anouk has the problem with Ilse for unknown reasons. She didn’t even congratulate The Common Linnets last May which is weird. I guess that’s why she accepted the invitation for The Voice. She will be amazing as a coach so can’t wait.

BUT why did trijntje left the show?? it will begin next september/october which means she will have time after Eurovision!!!
