THE NETHERLANDS – Ever since the Netherlands won the Eurovision Song Contest in May, we hear the whole of the Netherlands hoping that Jan Smit will be chosen to host the event. Well, we know from a very good source that this will actually happen.
The AVROTROS would only communicate about this in December. Jan Smit has been a commentator on the TV broadcasts of the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years and may later also be responsible for the presentation of the major song festival. Perhaps he will have someone by his side, not just to put that heavy task on his shoulders.
Jan Smit (born December 31, 1985) is a Dutch singer, television host, actor and football director. Smit mostly sings Dutch songs that fall under the genre known as Volendam music. In addition to his solo career, in 2015 Smit joined the trio Schlager KLUBBB3, and in 2017 The Toppers.
As a TV presenter, he has worked on programs like the best singers in the Netherlands and Music Festival on the square. Since 1999, Smit has been serving as an ambassador for the SOS Children’s Villages, and is member of the board for the football club FC Volendam.
