Klaartje & Nicky to sing for the Netherlands

An unexpected winner in the Netherlands last night. Klaartje & Nicky, who were only third in the first semi final of the Dutch Nationaal Juniorsongfestival, defeated one of the public's favourites Anouk with 3 points.

A kids jury, a professional jury and televoting decided over the Dutch representative for Lillehammer. These are the results:

1. 32 points | Klaartje & Nicky Hij is een kei
2. 29 points | Anouk Het is uit
3. 25 points | Danny Van zingen word ik blij
4. 24 points | Shakira – Dansen in Afrika
5. 19 points | Marnix – Het allergrootste hart

Roel Felius, who represented the Netherlands in Copenhagen last year, announced the decisive televoting results. Klaartje (10) from Boekel and Nicky (9) from Veghel will be his successors.

Striking is that the girls reached the final thanks to a wild card after they only ended third in the first semi final. During that show Angela Groothuizen, the host of Nationaal Juniorsongfestival made a blunder and announced them as winners.

Nationaal Juniorsongfestival attracted 1.200.000 viewers in the Netherlands, that is about 8% rating and a market share of 18,3%.
