With their latest victory in 1975, the Netherlands has won the Eurovision Song Contest four times, ranking in the top 10 of most successful countries in the contest.This year their representative Edsilia Rombley, who also participated in 1998 (finishing 4th), will be seeking the 5th victory for the country with her song On top of the world.
Some days ago Edsilia talked exclusively to esctoday.com and our Dutch partner website eurovisionartists.nl about her preparations for Helsinki, and she revealed that she'll be accompanied on stage by four female dancers and one male. The four girls (Martine Hauwert, Merel Schaftenaar, Charida Jonkhart and Thirza Solcer) will also sing. The male dancer is Bram Blankestijn who'll jump, fly, fall and stand by Edsilia on top of a … podium. The group of dancers has been assembled by choreographer Gerald van Windt who collaborated with Edsilia in 1998 for her act of Hemelen aarde; her 4th place finish was the best result for the country in 23 years.
Edsilia Rombley is not doing well in the polls and the bookmakers may have underestimated the Dutch entry. Nevertheless, Edsilia and her team seem to be optimistic and they are promising us a confident and competent performance on 10th May at the semi-final, when they'll try to go through to the final of the 52nd Eurovision Song Contest.
