Our countdown to Eurovision continues this morning, as we take a look at what the Netherlands will be offering up hungry European viewers.
42 year old songstress Trijntje Oosterhuis is this year’s Dutch entrant. Trijntje is no stranger to success in her homeland, having notched up a series of hit singles and albums throughout her 25 years in the business. She’ll be performing in the first of the semi finals – a month tomorrow – just before the interval.
So what’s her English-language single ‘Walk Along’ like? It’s a totally convincing acoustic pop number with a halfway catchy chorus that shows Trijntje is more than aware of what she’s doing. That same chorus, however, does become a little repetitive towards the end, so it’ll be interesting to see if she can take the audience with her. Six points.
