The OG3NE ladies revealed their spectacular Eurovision outfits earlier today, and wore them onstage for thier first rehearsal. All three costumes are made from black sequined material, with glitter and diamanté details. Amy wears an off-the-shoulder catsuit with a cutout at the hip. Shelley is wearing a fitted 3/4 sleeve knee-length dress, with a wide v-neck and padded shoulders, also with a cutout at the hip. Lisa will wear an asymmetric-hemmed shorter dress, with a deep v-neck and capped sleeves.

Tycho Boeker, designer who trademarked the Prince Charming show costumes brand, designed outfits. He also designed Trijntje Oosterhuis’ infamous daringly low-cut rehearsal dress in 2015, which never made it to the Eurovision stage.

Joyce Bastinck and assistant Betty van der Leest are responsible for the realisation of the show costumes.

Amongst other words, the three sisters stated:

This stage is not the largest stage that we’ve been on but it’s a pretty big one.
When it comes to their band and their actions, O’G3NE are saying:
We want to be unique because if you try to be someone else you’ll disappear. The best thing we have learnt from Junior Eurovision is that we should stay true to ourselves and that we don’t have to do something if it doesn’t feel right.



The dutch girls have been performing together for a very long time and so the chemistry between them is clearly visible. Despite having some problems with not knowing where to look and where the cameras are, the girls provide a strong performance.

The backdrop varies throughout the song from forests to candles to cherry blossom and parts of the lyrics are seen on it. Overall, the performance is very appealing and it is highly likely that both televoters and juries will give it a high rank.
