I'm not a fan of the contest, but I often find myself watching it... I'm curious how our Dutch entry OG3NE is going to perform, they sing in very nice hamonies together, those girls!  :whistle: :whistle:
I'm proud of this track, check it out! https://soundcloud.com/martimedia/dreams

To be honest, It was great when I was 10 years old.  I now loathe this competition and the mostly bland music that it promotes.

Sorry   :(

Me2, just because it's sooooo 'wrong' and spoiled with politic 'hints' hahaha, I guess you like that part as well @Dutchbeat ?


I use to like to watch it when I lived in Germany. Maybe because it didn't require using my German Integration Course language skills - I could just watch it, enjoy it and not use my brain.
Everything seems political these days, but what can you do?  ;D

Wow well done @Dutchbeat and Mrs DB, predicting the outcome!
The dutch entry (OG3NE) did very well imo, I loooove harmonies and they're soooo good at it..
What did you think of your country's performers European (and -allied) kitcheners?

Some acts are beyond salvation - but there is always something interesting to be spotted. For instance Montenegro's entry in 2012 by Rambo Amadeus (for Zappa fans), and Conchita Wurst in 2014 ... missed the semi-finals this week but I read here and elsewhere that O’G3NE did well...

my all time fav Dutch eurovision song is Ding-a-dong (guilty pleasure)
 fav on the whole: Waterloo.
