As was widely reported on Saturday, Trijntje Oosterhuis has today been confirmed as the Netherlands’ Eurovision 2015 representative.
The 41-year-old jazz-pop singer has enjoyed a career spanning over a decade with multiple gold and platinum albums.
Her name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue as easily as The Common Linnets, or even Anouk for that matter, so I fear I might embarrass myself come next year’s Eurovision podcasts.
On the subject of Anouk, songwriting responsibilities will fall to the Eurovision 2013 challenger, who earned Netherlands their first qualification in nine years!
With Trijntje’s assured live vocal and Anouk’s evocative writing, this could be another decent year for the Netherlands, but can they go one better and win in Vienna?
