Netherlands – The Dutch national broadcaster TROS has announced today that the participants in the national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 will be announced on January 5. Originally the competitors were supposed to be revealed in the “first weeks of December”. According to TROS the amount of entries submitted went way beyond what they expected and in order to assess all the songs thoroughly more time would be needed.

Last year the Netherlands failed for the seventh consecutive time to qualify from the semi-final with the popular band “The 3Js”. They even came last in their semi with only 19 points.
