OG3NE LISA AMY SHELLEY EUROVISION 2017 KIEV

They’re the sisterly trio who will be representing their country in Kyiv. It was a long road for O’G3NE to be chosen as the Netherlands’ act for Eurovision 2017, but now they are close to selecting their song. 

O’G3NE member Shelley Vol spoke to NPO Radio 2 earlier this week and revealed that there are only three entries left in the selection process:

“It’s going well. We had a writers camp some weeks ago and we got a lot of nice songs from there. We have currently narrowed down to a top three. They are three totally different songs, so the question is more, what do we want? What message do we want to bring? I think people shouldn’t be surprised about the choice. We will stay close to ourselves. We want to clearly show off our polyphonic sound.”

Shelley also spoke about the songwriters of the considered entries. These include Gordon Groothedde, Han Kooreneef, their dad Rick Vol and others. Groothedde has produced several hit songs, including six top hits, while Kooreneef has written music for several past Eurovision participants such as Edsilia Rombley, Ruth Jacott and Roberto Bellarossa. O’G3NE’s dad previously wrote their The Voice-winning single “Magic”.

O’G3NE were positive about their received entries:

“There was choice enough. We can’t say: “Oh, we hoped for better songs,” because I think we have heard all sorts of songs now. So, we were very blessed with that.” 

With their song choice likely to be revealed in March, we will definitely have something to look forward to the coming months.

O’G3NE weren’t in De Beste Singer/Songwriter… that’s their problem, they can’t write songs 😉 You probably mean De Beste Zangers.

You want them to use echoing in a ballad, but that technique (if you can call it that) is best suited to an uptempo song. In a ballad it would just be lame.

Hopefully they will sing a calm song like a ballad or something (like we did the past years) because than O’G3NE is the strongest (like a few songs from The Voice and The best Singer-Songwriter of the Netherlands) For example Magic and Clown hopefully a song with ‘echoing’ NOT a cheap up tempo typical Eurovision song like Take the money and Run and Wings to Fly… I think if we don’t do dumb things and we make the right choices especially for the song, then we have absolutely a great chance of winning!

I’m glad they’re keeping it in the Netherlands with the songwriters and producers, #noteverybodyhasthat. I hope they serve us a bop worth voting for!

Also, do we know which language they want? Would a mixture seem too much of a clash?

Are they going to present these choices? Or does the internal choice cover the song too? I’m curious
