The Netherlands: S10 sings her 2022 entry live

During popular Dutch TV showMatthijs Draait DoorDutch entrant S10 sang her Eurovision entryDe Diepte” live for the first time. This happened on March 5th 2022. This performance is fully live, the singing as well as the music, this also means that the on-stage Eurovision version will sound different, as the song contest has only live vocals and the music on tape.

The performance

During this live TV performance S10 stands in a network of red (laser?) lights while she sings her song.

In this regard, the lights that are all around S10 evoke a feeling of connection and confusion, which has been part of S10’s life for quite a while. Whether this staging is the one S10 will use in Turin is unknown.

About the song

S10’s song is called “De Diepte”, in English this would translate as “The Depth”. The song was written by the singer herself, and she describes the moral of the song as follows:

“A love letter to the hurt we all feel one day or another. The hurting is also us, it is connected to the people we are. It made us the people we are today. Hurt and joy live next to each other. Sometimes the depth (De Diepte) can also be comfortable, because it is what you know and it can feel like a blanket.”

S10 became famous for her music in the Netherlands, but also because she was featured in a documentary in which she discusses her battle with mental illness, like depression, between ages 14 and 17. She still carries the memories of that time with her, and sometimes she feels like she can relapse. Her song is not as much of a love song to a person, but to a time in her life. In the TV show she also expressed that the song can mean many things to other people, and that that is the power of music.

The Lyrics (translated)

“Do you know the feeling
That your dream is not coming true?
Do you ever worry that
It will always be like this?
Cause it rains every day
And I can’t see my hand in front of my face
You and me together, right?
We always would be

Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da
Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da

Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Here in the deep I hear your name over and over again
Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Oh, my love, what am I to do?
I’m deep and I won’t let you go

I hide under the table
And I hope you find me
I’ve been waiting all night
Oh, I’m like a child
I bite my teeth again
And I know you are, too
But God, what am I gonna do?
When will it be enough?

Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da
Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da

Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Here in the deep I hear your name over and over again
Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Oh, my love, what am I to do?
I’m deep and I don’t want to let you go

No no, no no
Don’t let you go

Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da, da-da
Ta-da-da-da, da-da-da-da

Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Here in the deep I hear your name over and over again
Hoo-ooh, hah-ahh-ahh
Oh, my love, what am I to do?
I’m deep and I don’t want to let you go”
