Playing a winning game at Eurovision 2019

25-year old Duncan Laurence (born Duncan de Moor, Spijkenisse, 1994) was internally chosen by the selection committee of Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS to represent the Netherlands at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.

His entry Arcade, composed and written by Duncan Laurence himself in collaboration with producers Wouter Hardy and Joel Sjöö, was among the pre-contest favourites for a top position. Performing Arcade in the second semi-final, Duncan Laurence won the second semi-final with 280 points, and progressed to the Grand Final.

In an exciting and tight vote, Arcade ultimately received the overall highest amount of points, thus winning the 64th Eurovision Song Contest with 498 points, the fifth victory for the Netherlands and bringing the trophy back to the country after 44 years.
