Ilse DeLange, who was one half of the duo, the Common Linnets that came second for the Netherlands at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest with Calm After The Storm, has a new song out called GRAVEL & DUST.
ESCCovers felt various websites, facebooks and blogs gave a comprehensive account about the tragic death of Sandra Reemer who took part in Eurovision for the Netherlands several times in various ways. We had yesterday a small tribute to her music. We do not have a large collection of her songs as she was never really known in South Africa but the song that impressed most was INDONESIA – a vinyl single she brought out in 1981. In fact 90% of the people attending the tribute heard this song for the very first time.
We continue with the country by country voting and now we present the 15th one – namely the DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO. As the system we use for the voting picture does not have this country in their system, we use pictures like we did for Lesotho and Swaziland
The running order of the Second Semi-Final of the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest:
