Eurovision Song Contest

21 päivä sitten

Each participating country has its own way of making its mark in Eurovision Song Contest. Today we take a look at the Eurovision 2021 host country, The Netherlands.
The Netherlands was one of the seven countries that participated in the very first edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. During the years they have won five times.
Catchy phrases, trios and a strong revival are some of the things that The Netherlands have put their name on in the Eurovision History book.

Honorable mentions: 1988 (catchy 80s tune, well sung), 1990 (amazing live vocals, powerful ballad), 1992 (could be seen as trio, but was not officially), 1993 (contemporary r&b, great vocals and staging), 1998 (on the wings of '93, great melody, voice and performance)

The Netherlands 1969 entry should have won outright.....1974 they would have won but no one can beat ABBA. 1975 it was a fun song.... 2014 was a great song was 2019.. Was in Amsterdam in December 2019 for the Eurovision concert...seems like a lifetime ago...was hoping to be in Rotterdam this year..... Looking forward to the shows..🇳🇱

@Elveon: Even though I’m generally very happy with our “safe” songs, I think I understand what you mean. Out of curiosity of what you call a non-safe song, would you have had a different opinion if we sent e.g. Double Date in 1999 (Email to Berlin) or Rafaella in 2012 (Chocolatte)?

The Netherlands used to be awesome in 70s and 80s, and they really started to excel again at 2010s! 2011, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020 and 2021 have all been amazing years for them! Definitely one of my currently favourite countries in Eurovision!
Sahi PK
Sahi PK 16 päivää sitten
@The Bricker I'm sure that the 3Js find it nice to hear that their song is appreciated by some (and to be honest, I too have some favourite songs from other countries that did not do well at the ESC). To my impression, most Dutch viewers practically gave up in 2011 that we would ever reach the finals again. Our viewer ratings were very low that year and the song itself is quite unknown among Dutch people.

@Sahi PK Not a Dutch person here, had to run your comment through Google Translate to figure it out. No, 2011 was not a typo at all, that entry is so wholesome and is easily in my top 3 of the year.
