The Eurovision Song Contest has been a positive experience for quite a number of countries throughout the years and although things might turn sour for some time, they would turn around eventually. The Netherlands are still hoping that they will shine again once more noting that a change in broadcaster has not helped the ailing nation get out of the negative funk which they have entered since the introduction of the semi-finals noting that they have only managed to get through to the final round of the competiiont just one, that being in 2004 with the song Without You performed by Re-Union. It seems that 2013 is set to be quite an interesting year with the press somewhat covering every possible edge to make sure that success is achieved.
In the past couple of weeks, one of the individuals to put her name forward to represent The Netherlands was none other than Anouk, one of the most popular names in the industry and known all over Europe for her hit song Nobody's Wife released quite a couple of years back. At first, the broadcaster, TROS were not looking at sending the artist internally with a national final thought to be taking place but there seems to have been somewhat of a change of heart according to the Dutch newspaper, Algemeen Dagblad which reported that; the director of the broadcaster; Peter Kuipers is prepared to 'have a conversation with Anouk'. The renowned performer is looking to represent The Netherlands in Malmo, so much so that she already has a 'killer song' lined up to perform at the esteemed event.
