Duncan Laurence Arcade Netherlands Eurovision 2019 winner

The US has the Emmys, Britain has the BAFTAs and the Netherlands has the Gouden Televizier-Ring Gala. Held on Wednesday October 9 in the AFAS Live, it was attended by the great and good of the Dutch showbiz class, including a certain Duncan Laurence.

Duncan Laurence wins TV Moment of the Year 2019

As the celebs looked back on the past year in television and the most important prizes in Dutch TV were dished out,  Duncan performed his Eurovision-winning hit “Arcade”. But that wasn’t all.

Laurence’s victory in Tel Aviv was voted the Best TV Moment of the Year for 2019. Winning this prize is a great honour in The Netherlands.

It was a well deserved win. More than four million Dutchies tuned in as the singer brought home the song contest trophy for the first time in 44 year — iconic!

This performance of “Arcade” included live music, adding a wonderful dimension to the already enchanting song. Afterwards, Duncan received a standing ovation from an adoring crowd. The singer was left visibly emotional by the reception.

On Twitter, he wrote: “Thanks so much. TV moment of 2019 it is ! So honored!”, along with the hashtag #nervousandemotionalbutf*ckit

Wednesday was not the first time that Duncan performed in Amsterdam’s AFAS Live.

Last April, he joined a whole host of song contest stars for the annual Eurovision In Concert.

Eurovision In Concert is a benchmark for fans and bookmakers and an excellent opportunity to take a good look at the competitors. It’s often the first time acts perform their songs live and it can really set the pace for the Eurovision season. Like all previous years, this was a resounding success.

The tickets for Eurovision in Concert 2020 will go on sale today (Friday) on Ticketmaster.

Would have been great if it was by an interationale commitee or someyhing like that, winning best tv moment for a dutch by a dutch tv is more ridiculous than anything.

A lot of Dutch people are actually very handsome. Unfortunately, they do not send those to Eurovision. Well, not in 2019, anyway.

The very Dutch Ilse DeLange got 3rd place in Eurovision’s Next Topmodel 2014 on this website, so a lot of people don’t share your dumb generalizations.

I don’t know who you’re talking about but Duncan Laurence doesn’t look a day over 25. Also If you don’t mind me asking, are you a YouTuber?

Bruh incorrect use of the word “ain’t”!

I have no idea what you are talking about, care to elaborate? I find it convenient how you managed to deviate from initial question as well.

The show was hosted by rumoured 2020 presentor Dionne Staxx, but she was a bit stiff and oldfashioned, dressed wrongly and looked out of place. The show was opened by rumoured possible entrant Romy Monteiro (just like Glennis a Whitney wannabe) doing a mashup between Whitney’s ‘Higher love’ and ‘Put a ring on it’ by Beyonce. Well performed. Jan Smit tv eurovision commentator without eurovision knowlegde was nominated for his show ‘Best singers of Holland’ but did not win. Othe possible 2020 presenter Chantal Janzen won the prize of best presentator for the 5th time.

I don’t even know what that means. Better to be vanilla than an uninteresting puppet, though. Stay strung. 🙂

Mate – being vanilla means you’re an uninteresting puppet. If you don’t know the meaning – google it before making yourself look silly.

I was referring to the silly “stay pressed” and I am not your mate. You could use some vanilla. Uninteresting is what you are aspiring to be. From deadly boring. 🙂

You don’t even have to like the song for it to be good television.
