Edsilia, who represented the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998 with Hemel en aarde, will replace the ill jury member Nance during the Dutch national final tomorrow.
It's the third time a jury member has to be replaced in the Dutch selection this year. During the third preselection, Michelle replaced Coot van Doesburg and during the fourth edition Marlayne replaced Johan Nijenhuis. Coot and Johan will be on their places again tomorrow.
During today's rehearsals for the final Gordon said that he's on the top of all polls. Probably he's no regular esctoday.com visitor, because our visitors selected Esther Hart as winner. “The contest brings so much stress (…) and when I loose this year it's my last participation”. Gordon also thinks that “the Dutch televoters have to decide if they want my ballad or the up-tempo song by Esther Hart…or maybe an outsider like Arwin Kluft will win”.
