The singer, who was confirmed last December as the Dutch representative for Turin, presents “De Diepte (The Deep), a song performed in Dutch. It will be the first time since 2010 that the country will send a song in Dutch.


Stien den Hollander was born on 8 November 2000 in Hoorn, North Holland. She is also an expert in rap and spoken word and stresses the importance of telling her stories as her own experiences, so her song for Turin will be performed in Dutch, bringing the country back to its native language for the first time since 2010.

S10 currently has over 700,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and collaborations with the most influential artists in the Netherlands. He made his music debut when he was just 16 years old thanks to his signing with Noah’s Ark label, with whom he released his first two albums on mental health, Antipsychotica (2017) and Lithium (2018)

Since then she has released two more albums more professionally, Snowsniper in 2019 and Vlinders last year, the latter of which led to a sold-out tour on all dates and local chart hits. S10′s latest hit to date is the remix of her track Adem je in(Breathe).

the CHOICE OF S10 was unanimous

As Eric van Stade commented when the artist’s name was announced, S10’s selection as representative was unanimous by the selection committee, who stress that her song “shows grit and authenticity”

They know they are “sticking their necks out” with the choice of a Dutch-language song, but that it “promises to be a very special edition for the Netherlands“.

the history of the netherlands at the eurovision

The Netherlands is one of the few countries to have participated in the Eurovision Song Contest since the first edition in 1956. During its Eurovision Song Contest history, the Netherlands has had its ups and downs at the Song Contest, winning five times

Their first victory was in 1957 with the song “Net als toen” by Corry Brokken. Two years later, in 1959, it was Teddy Scholten’s “Een beetje”. In 1969, the Netherlands won with Lenny Kuhr and “De troubadour”, but shared the victory with France, Spain and the United Kingdom

The next Dutch victory came in 1975, with the Teach-In group and “Ding-a-Dong”. Finally, their last victory came 44 years later, in 2019, with Duncan Laurence’s “Arcade”. On the other side of the scale, the Netherlands have twice finished with zero points, in 1962 with De Spelbrekers and in 1963 with Annie Palmen.

Since they started participating, the Netherlands has only missed out on the competition on four occasions. In 1985 and 1991, the country was absent because the Eurovision took place on 4 May, coinciding with Remembrance Day in the Kingdom. In 1995 and 2002 , the country was relegated due to poor results in the previous editions.

In 2021, following the cancellation of the 2020 edition due to the Covid pandemic, the contest was held in Rotterdam after Duncan Laurence’s victory in 2019 and they were represented by Jeangu Macrooy with “Birth of a New Age” with which they finished 23rd in the final (direct qualifiers as they were hosts) with only 11 points.
