On Friday Duncan Laurence hit the airwaves during a visit with ‘Radio 538‘. Proving that he doesn’t need fancy production to shine, he performed a completely stripped-back version of “Arcade” with only the piano supporting his vocals. One sign that it worked? He brought presenter Henk Blok to tears.
He also talked about the song and described the mayhem and magic of participating in Eurovision. You can watch the full interview here.
It’s not the first time he’s presented an acoustic version of the song. Previously he worked his magic on the Dutch TV Show De Wereld Draait Door. But that time he still had backing vocalists and a band with him. On the radio he was totally solo.
Duncan and his team — including Common Linnet Ilse De Lange — are currently sorting out what they will do with staging. For now he remains number one with the bookmakers and currently tops our “Who Will Win Eurovision 2019 poll”.
