Netherlands - 2012

The dutch have gone for Joan Franka with her song "You and Me".

COME ON JOAN FRANKA! I really, really like this song. It's not as great as some other songs, but the whole performance of You and Me makes me truly adore this song. The Netherlands haven't qualified since 2004 (nevermind Portugal doing badly, the Netherlands haven't had any real success since the introduction of semi finals).

Joan Franka has real talent, has co-composed a cracking song, has such strong stage presence, and a Eurovision winning Indian head-dress, which all equals to me success. So why Europe, are we hating on the Dutch? If this doesn't qualify I'll be slightly miffed. I mean, even if they are performing a disastorous 3rd in a hot second semi-final, surely that headdress should keep all audiences from a range of cultures really interested?

Will this win? No. Should it qualify? YES! C'mon Netherlands, this is your year to turn around that bad fortune!

Song rating: 7/10
Liklihood to win: 3/10

Current odds: 80-1                ( (on average)
