Trijntje Oosterhuis is ready for next year’s songfestival

Trijntje Oosterhuis has confirmed that she is taking part in next year’s Songfestival on radio program Gouden Uren, hosted by Daniël Dekker on NPO radio 2. She is going to represent the Netherlands next year. Trijntje: “I’m really excited. It’s gonna be so much fun.” Trijntje wasn’t always a big fan of the Songfestival, but her opinion on it has changed since Anouk (Dutch singer) performed there. Trijntje: “Anouk put the Songfestival in another light for me, and she’s put the festival on the map. It really is an honour to go there and represent our country. Ilse and Waylon (also Dutch singers) have cooperated on it last year as well.” Anouk is writing the song, yet it isn’t finished. Trijntje is very excited about the song and it gives her a sense of bravery. “This song is the main reason that I’m taking part in the festival.”

The Songfestival is going to be held next year in Wenen. The semifinals will be on the 19th and 21st of May 2015, the finals will be on the 23th of May.
