Dutch broadcaster TrosAvros will be holding a special press conference at the Wisseloord Studios in Hilversum today at 12:30 CET in order to reveal the name of the 2014 Dutch Eurovision representative.

The press conference will be streamed live via TrosAvros Eurovision webpage here.

The Netherlands has once again opted to select their Eurovision representative via an internal selection as was the case in 2013 when Anouk was selected internally to fly the Dutch flag in Malmö.

Major Dutch newspapers and media have been speculating that Dutch country music singer Ilse DeLange will follow into Anouk’s footsteps and represent The Netherlands at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Denmark. Today we will know the name of the 2014 Dutch Eurovision representative and if Ilse will be the lucky act to fly the Dutch flag in Copenhagen.

The Netherlands debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 and is one of the founder members of our favourite television show. The country has won the event 4 times (1957, 1959, 1969 and 1975).

Anouk represented The Netherlands at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmo with Birds, achieving a 9th place in the final.
