by Roy Knoops 1,150 views

Dutch Eurovision 2018 representative Waylon is playing his wicked game, taking his sweet time to reveal his Eurovision 2018 entry.

Five songs, five potential Eurovision 2018 entries – but which one is THE song? Completely in line with the title of his upcoming album, The world can wait, Dutch artist Waylon is set to reveal his Eurovision 2018 entry sweet and slow. Leading up to the definite presentation on Saturday 3 March 2018, Waylon will unveil five songs a day in the coming week, each of which might be his entry for Lisbon, Portugal.

The song reveal week starts on Friday 23 February 2018.

The World Can Wait in De Wereld Draait Door

Waylon will be a special guest in the popular TV-show The wereld draait door (The world spins on). Each day, he will reveal a song from his album The world can wait. This is not just a keen marketing strategy to promote his new musical material, but also a conscious effort to put the focus on his artistry: Waylon has stated that the title The world can wait refers to completely submitting to the music, immersing oneself in the melodies, without distractions from the outside world.

Thus, although he has hinted that one of the five songs is his choice for Eurovision 2018, the public has to patiently wait until the official presentation on the 3rd of March. Until then, just enjoy the music!

How to watch

De wereld draait door airs on weekdays at 19.00 CET on channel NPO 1.

Waylon recently visited De wereld draait door, performing Folsom prison blues by country legend Johnny Cash:
