The Dutch Nationaal Songfestival will take place on January 30. The Dutch band 3JS have finished 4 out of 5 songs already; Nooit alleen (Never alone), Je verliest en je wint (You lose and you win), Geef mij een naam (Give me a name) and Toen ik jou vergat (When I forgot about you).
Leadsinger of the band, Jan Dulles, revealed the news today during DJ Frank Mol's radioshow EurovisieFM,broadcasted byStadsradio Breda. 3JS wrote all 4 songs during a short stay in France. Jan Dulles: 'We wrote songs with four different styles. There's a song with African influences, an up-tempo song in Coldplay-style, a country song and a ballad which can be best compared to the style of John Mayer. The song Nooit alleen is currently our favorite'.
No final decision has been made about the venue for the Nationaal Songfestival but 3JS want a modern settign for their performance. Dullens said that Poppodium 013 in Tilburg is very likely to be the venue for the Nationaal Songfestival.
3JS recently topped the Dutch charts with the song Wat is Dromen, a duet with Ellen ten Damme; a Dutch actress/singer who took part in the German national final back in 2005. You can watch the videoclip of Wat is dromen here:
