Netherlands – One of the biggest stars in the Netherlands has revealed today that she was rejected by the Dutch Eurovision broadcaster TROS. Through her twitter account, Anouk told her followers that she had approached TROS this year to represent the Netherlands in Sweden and that she has a “killer song” ready. However, TROS preferrs to go through with the idea to once more produce a national final with the help of popular television producer John de Mol. Anouk also said that TROS only wants to fill its schedule and does not really care about qualifying for the Eurovision final.
Anouk had her breakthrough in the Netherlands in 1997 with the single “Nobody’s Wife“. Form then on she had several hit songs in the Netherlands and in other European countries.
