The Toppers, Dutch representatives in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest spoke to esctoday.com. The group currently consists of Gordon, René Froger and Jeroen van der Boom. The Toppers are one of the most successful Dutch live acts at the time and they released four live albums that all made the top three of the Dutch charts.
The Toppers spoke about the line-up change that saw Jeroen van der Boom replacing Gerard Joling, the rehearsals and their impressions so far. They will represent the Netherlands performing their song Shine at number 19 and hence in the last spot in the second semi final on 14th May. Last year, Hind finished 13th in the first semi final with Your heart belongs to me and therefore did not make it to the final. The last time the Netherlands appeared in the final was in 2004.
