Semi final 2
Artist: O’G3NE
Song: Lights and Shadows
Odds: $41

Word of the day
Hou vol – Hold On
No, that’s Wilson Phillips

O’G3NE are a twofer, you get two for one. The won The Voice in 2014 as well as being Junior Eurovision graduates from 2007. So few Junior Eurovision contestants graduate to real Eurovision but would they have made it without being in The Voice and also in the 2016 De beste zangers van Nederland (The Best Singers of the Netherlands), probably not.

O’G3NE have had very little chart success in their own country. Their only top 10 single was heir winners single from The Voice, and they released two albums between Junior Eurovision and The Voice. It begs the question, why send them to Eurovision if no one in your own country will buy their shit? For that there is no answer.

Are the Vol sisters trying to be The Corrs, the Dixie Chicks or Wilson Phillips? It reeks of the 90’s so it has to be Wilson Phillips. Retro isn’t bad, which is why there are mid-range odds, but retro is not good. An OK song gets OK odds.

The Netherlands uses internal selections to decide on their Eurovision act, and has done since 2013. Prior to 2013 the entry was usually chosen through the Nationaal Songfestival. There were many exceptions, the first of which as in 1961
