In the coming months AVROTROS and O'G3NE will work on the Eurovision song for O'G3NE. The song is expected to be revealed in the beginning of 2017.
The Netherlands has internally selected both singer and song for Eurovision for the past four years.
Eric van Stade, Managing Director of AVROTROS: "In recent years, we have worked with some highly experienced artists, who already had a proven track record. This has made sure we are once again an important player at this contest. We are continuing this trend with O'G3NE. There's no doubting the fact that the ladies are the clear favourites of fans and viewers to represent our country. Their huge fan base, with almost 100,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter and millions of views on YouTube, shows how much people love the trio. We are convinced that Europe will be bowled over by the beautiful voices of these three sisters."
O'G3NE is a Dutch girl band made up of the three sisters Lisa, Amy, and Shelley Vol (Amy and Shelley are twins). The O stands for their mother's blood type and G3NE stands for the gene they share since they are sisters. They represented Netherlands at Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Adem In, Adem Uit). In 2014 they won the fifth season of The Voice of Holland, and became the first trio in the world to win The Voice.
