Music Binds Us is the name of the Eurovision 2021 grand ginal interval act. It will be a mix of classical and dance music — two of the Netherlands’ biggest musical export products. The interval act will star worldwide famous DJ Afrojack, Dutch singer Wulf, Eurovision 2005 star Glennis Grace and a symphony orchestra made up of young talents.
Last year, Afrojack and Glennis Grace were scheduled to perform at Eurovision 2020 before that contest was cancelled. Meanwhile, a young symphony orchestra had been recruited to bring a special performance.
This year, the artists will come together in a musical extravaganza alongside singer Wulf. The singer — born Lieuwe Albertsma — has become a household name in Dutch music in recent years, appearing in De Beste Zangers last autumn.
Eurovision 2021 Grand Final interval act
In the first part of the act takes place with in film, directed by the Dutch film director Tim Oliehoek. Not only do Afrojack and the classical orchestra play a role in this, but also the singer Wulf. In this film, the centre of Rotterdam is used and the famous Erasmus Bridge is central.
Then things go live to the big stage at Rotterdam Ahoy. Afrojack and Glennis Grace will bring the act to a live musical climax, while the classical orchestra plays on.
Head of Show Gerban Bakker said in a press release:
The act is called Music Binds Us. Music connects, especially in these times. Our DJ’s used to fly all over the world to connect with their audience which is now different unfortunately. With this act we would like to send energy from Rotterdam to Europe and literally reconnect. Not only with the viewers but also with two unique music styles: The famous Dutch dance music and the sound of the classical orchestra.
We want to show the best that The Netherlands has to offer during this edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not only with Afrojack but also with top vocal talents like Wulf and Glennis Grace. Tim Oliehoek is also one of the best directors of The Netherlands in my opinion. It will be interesting to see what he will create with this unique project. The orchestra consists of young talent and has been formed specially for the Grand Final. After this difficult year I hope that during this act all of Europe can forget the bad times for a while.
