Dutch Eurovision fans are still waiting to hear Mia Nicolai and Dion Cooper’s song contest entry. With only a few weeks to go before the Eurovision 2023 submission deadline, AVROTROS has yet to announce a release date.
Despite that, Eurovision 2019 winner Duncan Laurence has shed a tiny ray of light on the entry, which was earlier rumoured to be called “Chasing Highs”.
In an interview with Lithuanian broadcaster LRT, Duncan Laurence was asked about the Dutch entry for Eurovision 2023, which he co-wrote together with his long-time partner Jordan Garfield.
The Pabandom iš Naujo! guest judge said he had high hopes for the Netherlands’ chance of winning Eurovision this year:
“If I didn’t believe you could win, I wouldn’t participate.
We wrote the Eurovision song together – them, me, and my partner Jordan. Unfortunately, I can’t tell you more about the song yet, because it hasn’t been released yet.
But I promise you will hear it soon. We are currently ironing out the final details to make everything sound perfect.
I am a perfectionist, like the rest of our team. But that’s what you must do when you’re preparing for Eurovision. To think through every step, every detail, so that when we finally get to Liverpool, everything will be calm, of course, we will be fully prepared.”
Duncan visited Lithuania as part of his Baltic promo tour for his single “Electric Life”. Earlier in the week he also stopped off in Estonia and Latvia – where he performed at the country’s selection show Supernova.
AVROTROS has yet to reveal the date on which the Netherlands’ Eurovision 2023 entry will be revealed. However, rumour has it that this might be 2 March.
