Douwe Bob was cool as ice on the Eurovision 2016 red carpet on Sunday. Wearing a white tuxedo jacket with black pants, the Dutch country music hunk looked both sophisticated and timeless as he chatted with wiwibloggs.
As those of us on-the-ground in Stockholm already know, Douwe Bob has opened his very own bar during Eurovision week. Located on Skångatan, the bar was flooded with stars on opening night, including Juri Pootsman, Minus One and Serhat, amongst others. When asked if their hang out at Douwe’s pub could lead to some collaboration in the future, he didn’t confirm anything — but he didn’t not rule anything out either.
Douwe was not at all worried about his upcoming performance in Semi-Final 1 on Tuesday.
He is convinced that everything will go as planned — and that what is planned is all kinds of fabulous.
Of course Belgian fans are dying to know what their neighbours think about Laura Tesoro’s entry, and Douwe Bob did not shy away from giving his honest opinion.
“I love it! And I really hate when people are saying that its’ a rip off! Its impossible nowadays to write entirely new music”.
Douwe Bob is sure that Belgium and the Netherlands will both be in the finals this year.
So Douwe Bob is confident in himself and his song, but are you? Will we see the Netherlands reach the finals? Let us know in the comments box below!
