May 11 / First Rehearsal The Netherlands: not walking alone on stage
Fotis Konstantopoulos (Greece)
With a static performance by Trijntje, The Netherlands conducted their first technical rehearsal. Backdrop with a male/female couple love story in the LED graphics and various blue and red colours on stage. The singer is accompanied by dancers as well on stage.
“I am very confident because I have great people with me. It’s the first time I can see what Eurovision looks like. The dress is made of what I love most of my body.”
Trijntje has won several important Dutch music awards, was a judge for The Voice and sings for sold-out concert halls with the Ladies of Soul. After the successful entries in the Song Contest by Anouk (2013) and The Common Linnets – last year’s runner-up, which was the best Dutch result since 1975 – Trijntje felt the time was right to enter herself. She will sing the song Walk Along, co-written by Anouk. Anouk also wrote the songs for Trijntje’s new album (released in May 2015).
