But whatever happens, Duncan Laurence has a bright future ahead of him.
That’s because he’s just announced a national and European tour for the end of the year.

Duncan also promoted the tour from the green room during Semi-Final 2.
Host Bar Refaeli wanted to talk about his music video:
“I want to talk about your video where you show off your butt…”, but before Bar managed to finish her sentence, Duncan interrupted her with the exciting news.
While looking in the camera, he proudly announces: “You know what I just heard today, because of that butt, that video and performing here, I get to tour Europe. Yes! Woohoo!”
Duncan Laurence favourite to win Eurovision 2019
After giving a magical performance of his song Arcade in semi final 2, Duncan has remained on top of the odds to win.
It also seems likely The Netherlands performed well in the Semi-Final. He has been drawn 12th in the first half. It is believed that producers put songs that scored well in their semis on as late as possible in their respective halves of the Grand Final.
