However there seems no connection between the Royal marriage of Dutch prince Willem-Alexander with Máxima Zorreguieta and the Eurovision Song Contest, there is one !
February 1, a day before the ceremony, there will be a big party for 40.000 Dutch people in the Arena, a big stadium outside Amsterdam. The Prince and Máxima will also be there.
Every province will perform a song which is connected to them. Overijssel, a province in the eastern part of the country, will perform 'Dingedong', the Dutch winning entry from 1975 ! The song is connected with that provice because Teach-In, the group who performed 'Dingedong', came from Overijssel.
By the way, the marriage will be broadcasted in ten European countries.
