The Netherlands: AVROTROS teases Eurovision 2018 representative

The Dutch representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 will be announced very soon as AVROTROS has released a teaser video. The clip features a mysterious man that is apparently Waylon, half of the duo The Common Linnets (2014).

Is it Waylon the selected singer?

Judging by the man’s tattoo, Waylon is the main character of the video, which also shows some hints related to the singer, such as the hat he wore during his Eurovision performance along with Ilse DeLange.

Many reported entrants, only one name:

As in previous years, many different singers have been rumored to have been chosen by AVROTROS. Recent reports pointed to Within Temptation lead vocalist Sharon den Adel being the selected one, as the singer will make a big announcement tomorrow. Dutch website announced earlier the artist AVROTROS is sending to Lisbon ‘isn’t going to be a huge name out of the Dutch music scene.’

Other rumoured names were Pleun Bierbooms, Sharon Doorson, Maan and Romy Monteiro, but some of them already stated they hadn’t been selected to represent The Netherlands in Lisbon.

Waylon is clearly involved in this year’s Dutch entry, but how? Will he be a solo singer on stage? Will The Voice coach duet with another singer? Will he compose the song? An official announcement is expected to be released very soon, stay tuned!
