A BOY BAND – yes for the very first time a boy band will represent The Netherlands at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Four boys – Max (14), Jannes (14), Niels (12) & Ian (13) make up Fource. They won the Dutch ticket to the Junior Eurovision 2017 in Tbilisi. The song for the four boys will be announced at a later stage.

Right after the boys were selected for the semi-final, they asked the public to help them come up with a name for the boy band. Many fans submitted their ideas and eventually they chose the name FOURCE. The name refers to the group of four and their strength. Will they have the strength to win in Tbilisi?


In recent years the Netherlands has not brought promo singles to Eurovision. This year, according to your knowledge, they brought nothing to promote their entry LIGHTS AND SHADOWS by OG3NE.We had seen some promo item that probably was handed out at the AMSTERDAM event. To not have the Netherlands spot in the library stay empty, we had this promo single designed.







Charne and Lume ( LUNA) are both individual singers who came together through their love of music. Lume has released her debut album 100 000 Love Songs available on itunes last year through Muse Productions where she worked with Hugo Ludik from the popular Afrikaans band ADAM and the famous Vaughan Gardiner.

She will be releasing her next single Reenboog in the coming months. Charne has also been singing for many years and has been actively involved in the music industry performing on some of the biggest stages in SA. She has also been a part of professional Musical productions and has had interviews with Pretoria Fm and Radio Pulpit on various projects she has been involved in .Through friendship and their love of music these two talented ladies came together and staged the show Country Hearts that recently ran at the Barnyard Theater and are planning a series of shows for 2018 throughout SA. They will be covering the Netherlands song Light and Shadows with the Afrikaans title Lig en Skadus. They call themselves LUNA



Artist thoughts (And Song Announcement) by Amsterdam Eurettefriend (Designed by Carolina Añazgo Leo):

“I’m Amsterdam Eurettefriend and I’m sharing my opinions of how my country chose O’G3NE as Eurostars. I love to talk about it all day… that I can even tell their lives connected to the Eurovision Events:
Where do I start? Oh, I can remember! Lisa, Amy and Shelley were my Eurostars in Junior Eurovision 10 years ago, they grew so fast! So fast as my love of doing videos for my videoblog and I’m always figure it out what topic should I make next (Like how Eurofriend fans should be called, or how some countries win by surprise).

Now that they’re returning to a Eurovision event, I’m making sure that my country can reach top 10 or be in the Esc final and do well! And speaking of the Song contest, many friends are choosing their Eurostars and speaking of how they feel about it! Right now, I’m feeling happy. And I can’t wait for my girls to sing again on stage and they’re ready to share the song with all of us via livestreaming. Do you agree with my country’s stars and song?”- By Amsterdam Eurettefriend

‘Lights and Shadows’ is the name of the song  which O’G3NE trio will represent The Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv. It is power ballad – a style that girls are most famous for. The song has been written by Rick Vol – father of sisters, and Rory de Kievit – boyfriend of Shelley.
