The OG3NE sisters Lisa, Shelly and Amy are somewhat disappointed that they placed 11th in the Eurovision Song Contest. "We did our best and hope that we made the Netherlands proud", Lisa said to AD after the finals in Kiev on Saturday. "But we did expect a higher position." The three Dutch women were met by cheering fans when they landed on Schiphol airport on Sunday afternoon.
Dutch singers O3GNE made it through to the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest. They will perform sixth in the finals in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday. Their position was determined by a lottery after the second semi-final on Thursday, NU.nl reports.
A total of 1.5 million Dutch watched the first semi finals of the Eurovision Song Contest on NPO 1 on Tuesday night, according to figures from Stichting KijkOnderzoek, BuzzE reports.
Before the Eurovision Song Contest, NPO broadcast Op weg naar het Songfestival, in which Dutch celebrities speculated on the prospects of the semi-finalists. That drew nearly 1.3 million viewers. Only the NOS Journaal van 20.00 scored better with 2 million viewers.
