Artist announcement in early October!

http://escxtra.com/2016/09/19/the-netherla...-early-october/

QUOTE
Back in May, Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS confirmed that The Netherlands would participate in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. However, today more news came to light with Dutch website Omroep Brabant revealing that AVROTROS are due to announce the artist that will represent the country in Kyiv as quickly as “early October“.

This isn’t beyond the realms of possibility as since The Netherlands began selecting their entries internally back in 2013, their artist announcements have all occurred around this time of year. Anouk was revealed as their 2013 representative in October 2012, The Common Linnets and Trijntje Oosterhuis were revealed as their 2014 and 2015 representatives In November 2013 and 2014 respectively and Douwe Bob was confirmed as the 2016 Dutch representative back in September 2015. This change in selection process has been a massive success for the country scoring a 2nd place, 9th place and 11th place finish since the change was put in place. Prior to this, The Netherlands had suffered eight consecutive non-qualifications.

Daniel Dekker, the man in charge of the Eurovision team at AVROTROS, revealed to Omroep Brabant that the decision for 2017 has been different compared to recent years:

“[THIS TIME]WE HAVE THE LUXURY THAT WE CAN CHOOSE FROM SEVERAL GREAT ARTISTS. WE CAN MAKE A STRATEGIC CHOICE.”

The Dutch website also discusses the likelihood of three-piece girl group O’G3NE being selected. The former Junior Eurovision competitors have been rumoured as potential Eurovision representatives ever since their victory in The Voice of Holland in December 2014. Over the past few months, these rumours have been stronger than ever before although O’G3NE admitted earlier this summer that they were yet to be contacted by AVROTROS. The website claims that the broadcaster does believe selecting O’G3NE would have benefits, a key one being that they have experienced Junior Eurovision before and that such an experience would “work to their advantage”.

I'm quite loving the resurgence of The Netherlands in Eurovision and interested to see if they stick to their now tried and tested country/MOR pop trend.

They seem to be the only country that are consistently in my bottom (well, "Birds" was tolerable). I hope they break the pattern for 2017.

Hmm, they are talented girls but their material has been very average from what I've heard of it. Being a girl band already goes against them, they will need a song miles better than anything they've ever come up with before. When was the last time a girl band did well? Serebro 10 years ago? Honestly this screams non-qualification, but I'm hoping to be surprised!

More Junior Eurovision graduates though! *.*

I knew they must have been talented to win The Voice, but I didn't realise they were THIS good. I wonder if they should go against the Eurovision girlband stereotype of mid to uptempo pop songs (Song #1, Ljubav Je Svuda, Say It Again, Disappear, 100% Te Ljubam, Let's Get Loud) and just give us a massive ballad?

I watched their voice performances ages ago when looking for BJSC potentials. Their original stuff is okay but I know they will be given a fab track for esc!
