They’re the soulful sisters representing the Netherlands at this year’s Eurovision. And last weekend O’G3NE proved they aren’t just heavenly harmonisers: They’re heavenly hosts too. The trio were on hand to meet and greet over 30 Eurovision 2017 acts, who were in Amsterdam to perform at Eurovision In Concert, one of the flagship events of the preview party season. 

And while the “Lights And Shadows” songstresses posed for selfies with fellow acts and interviewed with outlets from Dublin to Dubrovnik, Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS was busy recording fellow Eurovision acts trying to pronounce their name and reacting to their song, and let’s just say not everyone nailed it on the first try.

OG’3NE fans will be aware that wiwibloggs cleared this up months ago but clearly not all the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 acts were watching.

If the ladies’ name caused confusion, their performance in Amsterdam left us in little doubt: These ladies are serious contenders to make the final in May.

“Lights And Shadows” is at its strongest live on stage and hearing those harmonies live will rock your world.

OG’3NE’s road to Eurovision

They may not have made appearances at other stops on the promo tour but that does not mean these girls are skipping time on preparations for Kyiv.

The ladies have been busy preparing their choreography for the big stage in Ukraine and sharing candid snaps through their official Instagram channel.

Busy with our Eurovision-choreo rehearsals !! #yayyy #ESC17 #Songcontest #Songfestival

A post shared by OG3NE (@og3ne) on

Having made frequent live appearances in the Netherlands, they will be fighting fit for Kyiv, where live vocals will be make or break every act’s chances of reaching the final.

Douwe Bob is a tough act to follow, but we’re confident the girls will do the Netherlands proud in May.

Did you struggle to pronounce O’G3NE’s name? Do you think they’ll slay on stage in Kyiv? Let us know in the comments below!

@Joris Bloemkool it’s not nice to bully someone just because they maybe fat or strange to look at you may be ugly yourself so don’t ever say that.

Thank you. I hope they’ll use that only as a metaphorical suggestion, not real things on screen. 🙁

Everytime I watch them, I think they’ll go far in future. Strong feeling and yet they look very prepared to tour already. Dunno what’s with material, though.

Was that referred to my comment?
I think you misunderstood what I’ve said.
I meant that being an established figure the possible downfall is less harsh: he will have the parachute, I don’t know how many others would have it in case of non victory. I’m sure Slavador will be good in Potugal but I’m not sure about the others (no offense intented for the others, it’s not a matter of talent, I’m questioning the market).

It’s a fun video, but when that Cornald Maas guy said that they have to use their mother’s desease in the visuals on stage, it left me in shock…

Sergey was big in Russia for many years and Russia was begging him for 8 years to participate. The fact that he still has the market of The Big Fat Mother Russia doesn’t mean that was easy to be 3rd in Eurovision after he thought he has it in his pocket. Francesco Gabbani is so not winning.

@unfair for the others Here, watch dog number 5. 🙂 It’s pretty normal that the favourite (others already told you what favorite means: bookies, polls etc) recieves a lot more attentions than others. It’s natural, that’s how news work but that doesn’t mean he’s winning for sure. There are good chances but no one can be sure about that, and if he’s not going to win I’m sure he wont need therapy: he’s singing and composing in Italian, his market is the italian market; sure winning ESC would be nice and maybe will open other markets, but the popularity he’s… Read more »

@hayk: You can google him with the words “Francesco gabbani pacco” or on the website “bitchyf”.

It’s not that difficult to get… You’ll have much more of this. Morality? Ehm, no… I’m actually talking about his penis and, believe it or not, his musical life will be the same with or without the win. He’s using the same means that he made fun of in the song, he said it about a million Times… He’s making… Read more »

-most europeans still haven’t heard all songs
-polls can’t be made like for politicians
-jury hates favorites
-last year Iveta, Amir, Sergey were everywhere (about Iveta was said ”this year we have one queen are the rest peasants”, about Amir and Sergey…no need to remind you)
-Gabbani is loved in esc bubble and in Italy, but Europe still doesn’t know him
-if Gabbani will lose he might need therapy after all this esc 2017

unfair for the others: He is the favourite for lots of people. He is winning all the polls, bookies, OGAE, the audience at the pre-parties loves him etc. And I’m not italian. Just deal with it that Francesco is the hot favourite to win ESC and don’t be ridiculous. You’re just saying things here 1000 times. If you don’t like him then why do you read these articles about him? Lol.

I guess you have a poster of Francesco on your wall and you throw blades on him in hope of hitting his moustache. Keep on training, you’ll get it ???? @hayk: Ah ah ah! You think?
