Girl group O'G3NE will represent the Netherlands at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest, broadcaster AVROTROS has announced. Although the timing of the announcement came as a surprise, Dutch media have already been speculating about the group's participation since summer.
The three sisters - Lisa (22) and twins Amy and Shelly Vol (21) - are not entirely new to the Eurovision world; in 2007 they represented the Netherlands at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Adem In, Adem Uit (Breath In, Breath Out), finishing 11th out of 17. A lot has happened in ten years time - they won The Voice of Holland in 2014 and had several chart successes.
"We are looking forward so much to once again represent our country. This is a new highlight in our career and we are going to do everything we can to make our country proud," Lisa, Amy & Shelly said. In the following months, O'G3NE and their team will work on their song and act for Kyiv. Their song is expected to be revealed in early 2017. Meanwhile, enjoy their biggest hit so far, Magic.
