They’re the Dutch girl group who achieved a very respectable 11th place in the grand final of Eurovision 2017.

And, following their breathtaking performance of “Lights and Shadows” in Kyiv, OG3NE have endured a very hectic period that included an appearance on RTL Late Night last Friday.

During the show the sisters — known to friends and family as Lisa, Amy and Shelley — received some very good news.

Their album We Got This — their first released under the name OG3NE — achieved gold status, denoting that they have sold more than 20,000 copies.

The album, a mix of new songs and covers of existing ones, includes their inspirational Eurovision track “Lights And Shadows”, which took inspiration from their mother’s ongoing battle with cancer.

Nodding to the significance of the song and its important place in their ever-expanding oeuvre, they also include an acoustic version of the song on the album.

Another masterpiece on the album is “Clown”, the Emeli Sandé hit which they covered to critical acclaim on the television show The Best Singers Of The Netherlands.

The album has already topped the Dutch album charts, so its golden status is icing on the cake.

During the same show the girls also talked about the emotional topic of their mother.

Their mom Isolde, who surprised the girls by flying to Kyiv ahead of the grand final, has a rare bone tumour and has been fighting cancer for several years.

Last month she made the decision to stop medical treatment, which is extremely taxing on the body and spirit, and which doesn’t always succeed in its goals.

We’re sending the sisters of OG3NE and their family lots of strength and #wiwilove during this trying period. 

OG3NE: Three times a lady

OG3NE’s mother is no doubt incredibly proud of her girls, whose theatre tour Three Times A Lady moves from strength to strength.

So much so that its been extended by a whopping 56 shows at the end of 2017 and into 2018 to accommodate demand.

The girls have also been invited to countless gigs, including Dreamfields, Dutch Valley and Pride Park in the Amsterdam Vondelpark.

Given that their Eurovision entry “Lights and Shadows” has already amassed over four million downloads, we expect plenty more offers to come through the pipeline.

Definitely one of my favourites of EV2017. I feel somewhere there is an alternative (better) universe where San Marino, Netherlands, Estonia, and Montenegro made up the top 4.

Still don’t really get it. They are clearly good vocalists, but it sounds too clean, and it lacks dynamics. As a result it sounds impersonal. I also think the song was a rather unfocused, and it was difficult to remember. Not without fine moments though.

Yup, as someone who admires ‘quality’ in music, and who listens to a lot of different music styles, I should like this. But in reality, it doesn’t hit me at all. They sing perfect harmonies, but that’s basically it. And apart from their vocals, their songs are just plain meh.

I am surprised that no one is saying that og3ne are the real winners, as this seems to be the fashion now.

No Ogene are not the real winners.It is Blanche , the Belgian representative. I think you confused Belgium and Netherlands.

And I think, dear Cassandra or many other names you have, that you have a serious problem of interpreting written text. I would advise to take some lessons in how to understand written text so you can avoid making a fool of yourself

You need to learn how to be condescending with some substance!! Coz as of right now you’re coming off as the fool.

Who is Cassandra though?
