Last Thursday night, wiwibloggers Mike and Denise went to Amsterdam to meet Dutch TV presenter Cornald Maas. If you don’t know who he is then shame on you (and please read this interview). Cornald hosts his own television show called Opium and on Thursday Douwe Bob — the Netherland’s Eurovision 2016 singer — appeared on the show. Afterwards he had a quick chat with wiwibloggs to talk Eurovision, celebrity and more…
We’ve all seen the picture on Twitter (yes, the half-naked one) where you ask your followers if they like your Eurovision look. You got a lot of reactions from it. Do you already know what you will wear on stage in Stockholm?
I don’t know what I will wear yet, but why are you asking? Don’t you want me to wear the outfit I put on my Twitter? No, I’m still trying to put on new things. I will share some outfit posts with you on Twitter more often.
Cornald Maas told us that you have a song you really like for Eurovision but that the song could still be changed. So has it already changed?
I’m pretty sure we have found the right Eurovision song and it’s still the same one. And, of course, you never know what other songs we will find but for now I’m really happy with this one and I think it won’t be changed. We still have a few months before you’ll be able to hear it. A lot of things can change in those months…
You met Måns Zelmerlöw last week. How was it and what did you discuss? With Måns I just had some small talk. He was a really nice guy so it was great to meet him.
Are you planning on going to Eurovision in Concert? Of course I want to be there. I’m not saying that I will be singing, but who knows. I just know that I don’t want to miss it.
What else will you do to promote yourself and your song?
I love getting attention and I love flirting with the cameras and with everyone else, so I will do everything I want to do. I will be on the red carpet. Years ago, before being known in the Netherlands, I already wanted to attend a red carpet while wearing a perfect suit to show myself to everyone else and now I’m able to do that. I’ll just see whatever happens once I’m in Stockholm, I’ll do everything I want to do.
Thanks to Douwe Bob for taking the time to speak with us!
By the way: did you know that Douwe has a lot of tattoos? You can see some on his fingers in the picture with Mike above. He also has one behind his ear but everyone thinks it’s his in-ear monitor.
