As promised, Dutch broadcaster TROS today revealed the televoting results of the four semifinals. In order to keep the final more exciting, TROS did not reveal the percentages during the live broadcasts of the semifinals. In each semifinal, the top 2 of the televoting proceeded to the final. The jury decided which third song could join the others to the final.

These are the televoting results of the four semifinals in the Netherlands

Semifinal 1:
1 – 25% | Trinity United – Go
2 – 22% | Renée & Dennis – One look

Conclusions
The most remarkable conclusion is that the professional jury consisting of Cornald Maas, Esther Hart and Paul de Leeuw only once selected the song ending third in the televoting to proceed to the final: Tiffany with Tomorrow in semifinal 2. In semifinal 1, 3 and 4, they selected a song ending 5th, 4th and 5th respectively. The biggest victim of the jury's choice is André Kuik. He finished third twice: in semifinal 3 as part of the duo Kuik & Klaver with 13% and in the last semifinal with no less than 23% of the televotes!

Interesting to see is that Glennis Grace impressed the televoting audience even more in the final. In the 4th semifinal with 6 participants she gained 38% of the votes. In the final with 12 songs, she almost received 40% of the televotes!
