The Dutch have been having a fairly good time of it at Eurovision in recent years – with the exception of Trijntje. After many (deserved) years in the wilderness, they’ve shown effort. Just the other year, they nearly won.
Today they unveiled their song for Kiev. Lights and Shadows from O’G3NE was trailed as a ‘power pop ballad’ – which turns out to be shorthand for forgettable. It has that ‘written for Eurovision‘ feeling stamped through it.
Super cute alert – it’s co-written by their dad, Rick, who teamed up with Rory de Kievit. The group is made up of sisters Lisa, Amy, and Shelley Vol.
They’ve promised a bit of glamour when they hit the stage in May, in the meantime, here’s the video. Make up your own mind.
