The Dutch chose a new way to select a song; six songs competing against each other in duals much like a Swedish second chance final. The dual three winners then competed for the honour of representing the Netherlands.
Joan, dressed like an Indian, sings the song while playing the guitar. It's kind of quirky and it's very much the kind of song that you can sing along to, endearing and people can relate to it. I like it quite a lot.
The second semi is full of 'big guns and Balkans'. This said, Joan should be able to overcome all of these things and curse of being drawn third.
