Dutch broadcaster AVRO TROS O’G3NE to as songfestivalkandidaat indicate girls trio for 2017, but according to newspaper Algemeen Dagblad the broadcaster also had conversations with at least three other interested artists, but for some reason this did not reach an agreement.

According to the broadcasting AD had initially set their sights on their so-called ‘ dream candidate ‘ Dotan, best known for his monster hit Home.


His name was frequently mentioned. The singer is interested in a participation in the song contest but eventually threw the timing spanner in the works. Dotan has already too busy planning in 2017 and cannot deliver for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Ex-candidate to the Eurovision song contest

Also the name of VanVelzen falls into the article of the Algemeen Dagblad. The man, who suffers from a growth disorder, running for some time in the Dutch music world. He even had all that hits in Belgium, as with Take Me In. Also with him were so calls. It is not clear why he ended up not to Kiev.


The third and most notable name is that of belhamel Waylon (photo). The singer, currently coach in The Voice of Holland, would like to solo to the song contest. AVRO TROS apparently wanted to (also) like to go with him into the sea. Waylon made in 2014 together with Ilse DeLange part of The Common Linnets. They were together in the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen second behind winner Conchita Wurst. The group then left Waylon in disagreement. It was the beginning of a turbulent period. Waylon repeatedly took out the tabloid press with stories about debt, declining success and other few positive stories.


Also with Waylon it was nothing. AVRO also took the opportunity to find the girls of O’G3NE TROS and found with the trio soon other suitable candidates. The opinions about the choice of the girls are mostly positive. O’G3NE received all success of predecessors Gerard Joling, Marga Bult and Douwe Sieneke, Bob. Here and there, there is, of course, for example, a negative reaction to find on twitter.
