Opium is a cultural TV-show of Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS hosted by Cornald Maas, himself an expert in, and advocate for, the Eurovision Song Contest. He is also one of the official commentators of the ESC for broadcaster AVROTROS, and one of the hosts of the annual Eurovision In Concert in Amsterdam. Tonight, on the eve of her departure for Vienna, Dutch artist Trijntje Oosterhuis is the central guest in Opium, talking about all things Eurovision. Trijntje Oosterhuis will talk about her participation and her career, and will of course perform her 2015 Eurovision-entry Walk Along.

Furthermore, a panel consisting of TV-host Tijl Beckand, singer Jamai Loman and Radio 3FM-dj Annemieke Schollaardt will talk about their love for Eurovision, and analyse Trijntje Oosterhuis’ fellow participants in Vienna. They will also delve into the history of the Eurovision Song Contest, choosing their favourite ESC-song.
