Ilse DeLange and Waylon, also known as The Common Linnets were announced as the Dutch representatives for the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest a couple of months back, but nevertheless details of the song remained scarce and relatively secret a couple of days ago. On a radio show, where the duo was invited, the duo performed an acoustic version of their entry Calm Before the Storm, before the track being released in it's original version on radio earlier this morning. The music video is expected soon enough.

The Common Linnets will be representing The Netherlands in the first semi-final of the 2014 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2013, the Netherlands reached ninth (9th) place in the final of the continental competition, the first time that they had reached that stage since 2004, and the first time since 1999 that they managed to garner a top ten (10) result. In recent years, the Netherlands have changed broadcasters by moving from NOS to TROS, but now it seems that the broadcasters previously responsible for the participation of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest; AVRO and the Eurovision Song Contest; TROS have joined forces. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more news about the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest as soon as it becomes available.
