Speculation has already started to mount about who should represent the Netherlands in Kyiv next year. JESC 2007 participants O’G3NE are definitely on top of that list.
Yes, it’s only been two weeks since Douwe Bob finished eleventh at Eurovision 2016 with “Slow Down”, but the rumour mill about who will represent the Netherlands in 2017 has already started cranking.
Not so long ago we gave you a list of the six acts we think should represent the Netherlands. And now one of them – O’G3NE – are getting a lot of attention.
The group, who have been rumoured ever since their The Voice Of Holland audition, have already made it clear that they want to represent the Netherlands at Eurovision at some point.
Last year, the girls confirmed that they didn’t get a call from AVROTROS to have a meeting to talk about an eventual representation, but this year the tables have turned.
Jan Smit, the Dutch ESC commentator and host of the television show De Beste Zangers (in which O’G3NE are competing in at the moment), said in an interview with NPO Radio 2 that they should be approached this year.
“We have to evaluate the last Eurovision, first. There are several artists who want to fly the flag next year. But, O’G3NE, I saw them during ‘De Beste Zangers’, and they are just fantastic. That we should discuss possible participation [for next year], that’s clear to me.”
AVROTROS already confirmed that they will select their entrant for next year’s Eurovision Song Contest after the summer, so nothing has been decided yet.
