Traditionally, the Dutch delegation for Kyiv came together to watch the preview videos of the 39 participating songs. After a top-5 voting among the delegation members, Greece topped the score board.
Eurovision Song Contest commentators Willem van Beusekom (tv), Cornald Maas (tv), Ron Stoeltie (radio), Head of Delegation Noortje Kandt, Glennis Grace and her manager John van Katwijk, songwriter Bruce Smith, composer Robert Fisher and others joined the viewing session. After a voting for the top-5 Greece ended up first. The biggest surprise was Denmark as runner-up; so far, Jakob Sveistrup has to be satisfied with mediocre poll results and betting odds. The Dutch delegation had different thoughts on Talking to you.
It was not possible to vote for the Dutch entry.
