As a member of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) the NOS has been broadcasting the Eurovison Song Contest (ESC) since 1956. In that year the first ESC took place in Lugano, Switserland, The Netherlands were among the first countries to compete in this event.
Since 1956 the Netherlands have participated in the Contest for 48 times (including 2007/Helsinki). In 1985, 1991, 1995 and 2002 the Netherlands did not participate.
Since the start of the Eurovision Song Contest the Netherlands have won the contest four times: in 1957 (Corry Brokken – 'Net als toen'), in 1959 (Teddy Scholten – 'Een beetje'), in 1969 (Lenny Kuhr – 'De troubadour') and in 1975 (Teach-in – 'Ding a dong').
Until now the Netherlands have organised the ESC four times as well: in 1958 (Hilversum), in 1970 (Amsterdam), in 1976 (The Hague) and in 1980 (The Hague).
In 2007 NOS will broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest for the 52th time. The Netherlands will be seeking their fifth win. This year the Dutch entry will be the artist Edsilia Rombley with the song 'On top of the world'. Rombley represented the Netherlands earlier, in 1998 in Birmingham, when the song 'Hemel en Aarde' ended in fourth place.
A journalist from Azerbaijan Television asked if the band Serebro, meaning silver, was any significance of the position they are hoping for during the next contest.
Lead singer Elena says; "We want gold in Helsinki but we can only make the gold if we work hard and remain ourselves."
Russian girl band Serebro arrived for their first rehearsal and press conference today, amongst huge media interest. As with the video the girls live performance keeps the moody and provocative sexy feel to it. There are two female backing singers on stage and a guitarist.
The girls went on to explain that in Russia people love the Eurovision Song Contest, there are a lot of fans and a big fan club, and they finally want to win and host the contest in Moscow.
Romanian delegation to Eurovision Song Contest 2007 arrived to Helsinki on Saturday, the 5th of May, even if their plane landed 30 minutes later than previewed. Before boarding, on the airport of Otopeni, the guys were surprised to see, on the local television network, the news announcing their leaving for Helsinki. In the meantime, some tourists stopped to wish them luck.
After a stopover in Amsterdam, Todomondo and their companions went to Eurovision Monsterland – Finland, as written on some official billboards of the event, spread all over the Finnish capital these days.
If some of the boys were anxious to touch the land as soon as possible and get away from the plane and airports, Mister M felt quite comfortable as air traveller, and he even took a tour of the stores from Schiphol airport, in Amsterdam. So, he landed in Helsinki richer with a flower (bought for his girlfriend, Elena, who was about to arrive on her own, that evening) and a toy (a mad driver).
“It was so funny, that I couldn’t help buying it. I’ll put it in my studio, to help me relax when I have too much work to do”, he said. On Sunday, the delegation was invited to the residence of the Romanian ambassador in Helsinki, Mr. Lucian, who made the boys feel like home, altogether with his wife and the Romanians working for the embassy. They took pictures, they talked about the 700 Romanians living in Finland and about their difficulties in accommodating with the Finnish life style and with learning the language.
Serbia won the 2007 Eurovision song contest on Saturday with the ballad "Molitva" sung by 23-year-old Marija Serifovic, beating Ukraine, Russia and 21 other acts for its first-ever title.
"All my life I have been singing and tonight this (victory) makes me very proud," said Serifovic, 22, who sang about love and pain in Serbo-Croat, flanked by five other women dressed in black suits and ties.
In Serbia, thousands took to the streets of Belgrade and other cities to celebrate Serifovic‘s victory. Massive sing-alongs to the winning tune and car-honking echoed through the streets.
The Ukrainian drag queen 'Verka Serdyuchka' came second place. Russia came third and Turkey finished in fourth place.
Serbia will now be charged with hosting the event in 2008. Following her win, Ms Serifovic told reporters "a new chapter has opened for Serbia. I am so proud. All my success is made by singing."
For the first time ever, the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest will go on a special Winner's Tour!
The European Broadcasting Union has prepared the Winner's Tour already and it is just a matter of time until we know which of the 42 contestants will visit six countries across Europe to promote the winning entry.
-16th of May - Denmark (Aarhus & Copenhagen)
-17th of May - Spain (Madrid)
-18th of May - Sweden (Malmö & Stockholm)
-19th of May - The Netherlands (Amsterdam & Almere)
-20th of May - Greece (Athens)
-21st of May - Germany (Hamburg)
You can follow the excitement online with the Winner's Tour map, showing the cities this year's Eurovision Song Contest winner will visit. You can also see when the winner will travel from one country to another.
The winner arrives at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol already on the 18th (22:30). The next day, interviews and public performances take place. The winner leaves for Athens, Greece, around 19:00 from Amsterdam Airport again.
"We had one of the best acts and we should have been in the final. But when you see that only East Bloc countries are advancing, what can you do?". Edsilia Rombley was very disappointed that she will not be at to the Eurovision Song Contest final with her song "On top of the world."
"After the seventh finalist was announced, I just didn't have any hope anymore,", although Edsilia after the semi-final. "Everyone I thought was good did not advance."
We laughed in the end." Edsilia claims many Western European participants came to her and said it was unfair that she had not been chosen. "None of them wants to take part again next year."
14 countries already qualified for Saturday's Final. 10 of them qualified
by reaching a top-10 position in last year's Eurovision Song Contest
Final, while the four biggest countries Germany, Spain, United Kingdom
and France qualify automatically under the rules.
Switzerland's DJ Bobo is out of this year's Eurovision Song contest in Helsinki after he failed to qualify in the preliminary round of the popular competition. The Swiss singer's elimination was a shock for most observers, who had put his controversial "Vampires are Alive" song among the favourites to win this year's event.
The 39-year-old, who had a worldwide smash hit with "Chihuahua" in 2003, was chosen to represent his country at the end of last year after a string of Swiss flops at the event. While Bobo's performance was less than convincing, Eurovision observers say he fell victim to bloc voting.
As on previous occasions, voters from eastern Europe favoured regional competitors. Out of 28 candidates trying to nail one of the places for the final, nine of the acts which qualified for Saturday came from eastern Europe - with Turkey the only outsider to make it through.
"The problem is that eastern European nations award each other points," said Toni Wachter of Swiss public television DRS. "We are going have to think about how important this is to us and how we should proceed."
After last year's unexpected victory by monster rock group Lordi, controversy and fantasy return to the Eurovision song contest this weekend but make no doubt about it, glamour is back on centre stage.
Low-cut dresses and high-cut skirts, pink glitter drag queens, swarthy Latin singers and lots of big hair: 42 acts will compete on Saturday evening in Helsinki when some 120 million television viewers across Europe are expected to tune in to vote for their favourites.
Serbia, Sweden and Belarus top European bookies' lists of likely winners. Serbia's entry is entitled "Molitva," a love song about the uncertainties between God and man, performed by 23-year old Marija Serifovic.
Plenty of charm and deep decolletages are common features for Moldova's entry Natalia Barbu with her song "Fight," Dutch Edsilia Romley with "On Top of the World," Portugal's Sabrina and her entry "Danca Comigo," Macedonian singer Karolina and "Mojot Svet," and Norwegian Guri Schanke with her Latino entry "Ven A Bailar Conmigo."
Upcoming artists who enter the competition often hope for a boost to their careers but the contest has also appealed to many international stars such as Olivia Newton-John and Julio Iglesias, neither of whom won.
- I’ve been trying to let you go,
And I thought I was strong,
But your love’s got a hold on me and,
Now I can’t move on.
Are we making the same mistake?
Have we learned from the past?
Could this be our second chance, the one that’s gonna last?
On top of the world, I’m reaching out,
On top of the world, I sing out loud.
Just promise to never break my heart,
I’ll give you forever.
On top of the world, just you and I,
So promise to never say goodbye.
Now I know, we are forever more
People may come and go,
But I need you to stay.
Deep within I have always known,
That we would find a way.
On top of the world, I’m reaching out
On top of the world, I sing out loud
Just promise to never break my heart,
I’ll give you forever.
On top of the world , just you and I.
So promise to never say goodbye.
Now I know, we are forever more.
I know we’ve tried it all before,
It will be better now I’m sure.
Been so blind, you make me see
How strong I am when you’re with me.
Say your love is here to stay,
Need you more everyday.

Scooch are a British bubblegum dance group, comprising Natalie Powers (b. 1977), Caroline Barnes (b. 1979), David Ducasse (b. 1978), and Russ Spencer (b. 1980). Scooch will represent the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki with their song "Flying the Flag (for You)".
The foursome formed in 1999 after attending auditions for an "all-singing, all-dancing pop group" in front of the noted songwriters and producers Mike Stock and Matt Aitken and future manager, Steve Crosby. Signed to Accolade, the pop imprint of EMI-Parlophone, the group set about creating their image and sound. The group's name 'Scooch' comes from a term used to ask someone to move up or along a bench or sofa.
On 28 February 2007, it was announced that Scooch were to reform for a Eurovision Song Contest bid. The group appeared in the UK selection competition Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up on BBC One on Saturday 17 March 2007, singing and performing their song "Flying the Flag (for You)". The show began with six songs, which were reduced to two songs after the public had voted, the four songs with the fewest votes leaving the competition. The remaining two songs went head to head in a "sing-off" and the public voted again for the outright winner.
The show ended in controversy as the final result was announced. Fearne Cotton revealed the winner to be Scooch while, simultaneously in a much louder voice, co-host Terry Wogan announced the winner to be fellow entry Cyndi. After several seconds of confusion, it was revealed that Scooch were the actual winners of the competition and were to represent the United Kingdom. A confused Cyndi was hurried off the stage by Fearne Cotton so Scooch could perform the winning song once again.
In less than a year Roger Cicero has gone on to become one of the most successful singers in Germany with his hit „Zieh die Schuh aus – (Take Off Your Shoes)“.
The album „Männersachen – (Guy Things)“ has held top positions in the charts since its release and surpassed platinum status within just eight months. Now Roger Cicero with his swing tune „Frauen regier’n die Welt – (Women Rule The World)“ has won the German national competition for the Eurovision Song Contest.
He had two nominations for the Echo Awards 2007 and won the most prestigious Echo in the category „Best National Artist Pop/Rock“. The Echo is the German equivalent to the „Grammy“ awards. On May 12 he will represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki.
The secret of Roger Cicero’s success is his stunning voice in combination with freshly composed and brilliantly arranged Swing music and original German lyrics. This is enhanced with a fresh Big Band sound that hasn’t been heard in Germany for a long time. A type of music has been brought back to life that appeals to young music fans as well as to an older target group whose penchant for authentic music has for some time remained unsatisfied. Till now.
More than 350 million viewers watched the big final of the 52nd Eurovision Song Contest. It was Serbia's first appearance in the competition as an independent nation after Serbia-Montenegro split last year.
Bars in downtown Banja Luka, the administrative center of Bosnia's Serb-run entity, were jammed with people singing the winning ballad "Molitva" performed by 23-year-old Marija Serifovic.
They chanted "Serbia, Serbia!" at the news of the winning entry from the contest held this year in Helsinki.
Serbs from Republika Srpska, which along with the Muslim-Croat federation makes up the Bosnian nation after the 1990s war, regularly celebrate the sports victories of neighbouring Serbia with whom the Bosnian Serbs have close ethnic ties.
"The Republika Srpska government congratulates Marija Serifovic for succeeding in bringing Serbia closer to the European Union," the government spokeswoman Biljana Bokic told AFP.
At the contest Serbia received the maximum 12 points from Bosnia, as well as from the other Balkan states of Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Slovenia, all of which once formed the communist Yugoslav federation.
Last year, Lordi's victory with the growling rock number "Hard Rock Hallelujah" shocked many traditional fans of the contest, known for bland pop songs, camp acts and over-the-top performances.
Lordi's lead singer, Tomi Putaansuu, said at the time that the monster band had "changed the face of the Eurovision Song Contest forever."
Now, he is not so sure since the glitz and kitsch are back," he said before Saturday night's competition.
Verka Serduchka (pictured) from the Ukraine sings his song entitled 'Dancing Lasha Tumbai' on stage during the final of the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, in the Hartwall arena in Helsinki, Finland, Saturday, May 12, 2007.
More than 9,000 admirers of kitschy acts and bubble-gum music packed Helsinki's largest ice hockey stadium, while a few miles away up to 20,000 people watched the event live on giant screens in the city's central square.
The contestants, most of whom are from Eastern Europe, include a Ukrainian drag act in glitzy silver outfits, a Russian female trio with a racy pop number and a British spoof about flying on Eurovision airways.
Millions of TV viewers across the continent will pick the winner from 24 finalists during the three-hour event, hosted by Finland, which unexpectedly stole the show in 2006 with its heavy rock entry, the latex-masked monster band Lordi.
The shocks and surprises are beginning to settle in amongst the fans and journalists at Hartwall, as the ten finalists from tonight's contest gather together at the press centre for the winners' press conference.
This event was bound to be one of the most hotly anticipated and well attended of the whole contest, and journalists were ready with some burning questions to ask the newly qualified finalists. Top of the agenda for many people was the Eastern European question: how would the finalists explain the complete absence of Western Europe in the top ten this year (not counting Latvia's Italian contingent!)?
Two by two, representatives from each of the countries filed onto the podium to take their seats and get ready for questions. They spent some time posing for photographs, while chants of Sopho, Latvija and Türkiye were amongst those ringing in the air. Finally, things settled down to business.
"I am very happy to be here. This is a great night for Bulgaria. I hope people will vote for Bulgarian rhythms, for Bulgarian grooves, for Bulgarian music" said Elitsa. Stoyan added "this is our music, this is Bulgarian music. All over the World, music is a big positive energy and a success everywhere" to which there was general applause from the audience.
"I want to thanks from the international team. It's our first entry in the final, and it's a great moment for Belarussian culture. Our team is the most international of all the teams; I'm Belarussian, Phillip is Russian... Guys from Ukraine, Sweden, Estonia... I feel good! So good!" Koldun told the hall in his very good English.
So was the song inspired by Bond? "It's great that we have such a great performer like Koldun. He creates in my mind this kind of song, a magic, movie song. I'd be happy if this track became a Hollywood movie track. At the moment, I'll be the happiest man in the World if it becomes the track for the whole of the Eurovision!" said the composer, Phillip Kirkorov.
"I'm so happy, I want to thank all of Europe. I'm full of feelings at the moment" said Sopho, through her translator, before giving the audience a chorus of My Story to rousing applause. Then she added "I've already spoken to the speaker of parliament and the minister of culture in Georgia since the envelope was opened, and the whole country is overjoyed. The president's wife also called to congratulate me!"
"I think it'll be a holiday in my country until the final!" Natalia joked. "I'm a happy person as I'm supported by my family, my boyfriend... I repeat, I'm a happy person." But Natalia was the first to be asked about the Eastern European question. "I think we need a chance. Just a chance to be heard!" she replied simply.
Marija was grateful to everyone: "Thank you for coming tonight, because these are all beautiful musicians! And thank you in my name also. It is a big honour for me tonight to sit here speaking with you. It's a great honour to represent my country in the final. We've passed the worst. I want to say that the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 is amongst us here."
"For me, that was one of the best performances of my life" she added before thanking the audience again.
Karolina shared her feelings with the audience: "I feel very happy, very excited like all of us here. This is a dream come true, as it was the dream of the entire Macedonian team. We tried hard to make our performance look good and get into the final. We're so happy about it! Thanks a lot. Of course, afterwards we're going to celebrate somewhere... In the Euroclub, I think!"
But will FYR Macedonia get knocked back to the semi yet again? "I'm not psychic, I don't know!" she retorted. "We'll try and repeat the performance on Saturday, and hope we get to the top ten, but who knows?"
"I think if someone has a nice voice, that can also reflect the soul" Magdi mused. "I hope that I get substatial joy on Saturday. I hope people will listen to the music and enjoy it on Saturday."
"First of all, THANK YOU, GRAZIE, DANKE, HVALA!" Alenka told the audience. "At first I thought - who would vote for opera? And now, all of Europe has voted for me - thank you! But I want to thank my team... They worked like crazy to work this miracle that happened to Slovenia today. Thank you!"
"It's true we changed the high note" explained Alenka, talking of the first version of the song. "This is the first time she's sung with a microphone" said the composer. "She is an opera singer, singing in a theatre! If she wins, I promise she will sing that high note in the press conference!"
Kenan was invited to sing a song rather than answer a question first of all, which he readily complied with, but then asked all the other artists on the winners' podium to hold hands. Everyone did so, standing up, while Kenan said "this is how it should be. These talented people really deserve applause and cheers. They all deserve good things, and I want to thank all of them for making me feel great. Thanks to them all."
"I want to try my best. It's already been a great experience, and I want to thank all my fans around the World. My song Shake It Up Shekerim is going to be one of the good songs in the competition, and I want to thank you all."
It transpired that it is the birthday of band member Andris tonight, and one of the journalists led the hall in singing Happy Birthday to him. Roberto responded with a line sung in Italian too.
But why was the rose white instead of the expected red? "We couldn't find any other colours in the shop today, that was the problem!" admitted Roberto.
"I am very proud that singing as an Italian for Latvia will provoke Italy to return. I hope they will come back to Eurovision... Thank Latvia for helping Italy to come back!" he added triumphantly.
After Latvia had spoken, the finalists moved on to celebrate at the aftershow party, before launching straight into the Eurovision Song Contest final dress rehearsals tomorrow. The countdown has begun.
Music has always played a very important role in Edsilia Rombley’s (29) life, who was born in Amsterdam on 13th February 1978. Music was just part of everyday life in the Rombley household.
As the youngest of three, Edsilia tried to musically keep up with her sister, who was singing in an Antillean band at the time, and her brother, who rapped from time to time, from a very young age.
Edsilia faced her first challenges when she was just 13 years old. She took part in a talent contest with an Oleta Adams song. Everyone was simply amazed by her singing abilities. She joined the R&B/soul girl group ‘Dignity’ as a singer when she was fifteen years old.
She realised her real breakthrough at a very young age when she won the Dutch Soundmix Show in 1996 with another Oleta Adams song. She definitively became a household name after she also won the European finals of the Soundmix Show a year later.
Biography Edsilia Rombley
Biography Tjeerd Oosterhuis
Biography Martin Gijzemijter
Biography Maarten ten Hove
Edsilia represented the Netherlands at the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest in Birmingham in the United Kingdom. She reached fourth place with her Dutch song ‘Hemel en Aarde’ (Heaven and Earth), the highest score for the Netherlands since they won the Eurovision Song Contest for the last time in 1975.
Edsilia’s debut album was released during that same year of 1998. The completely English album included many of her own new songs, but also an Oleta Adams cover. A second album followed in 2002, again in English.
Songwriter/composer Tjeerd Oosterhuis, alias Tjeerdo, was closely involved with this album. In addition to song writing, Tjeerdo also took responsibility for the production of the CD.
In between producing the CD, Edsilia also went on tour both at home and abroad with the international laureate pianist Michiel Borstlap and she also performed at the famous North Sea Jazz Festival.
Edsilia and her band also visited numerous Dutch theatres with their own theatre programme, she was Lionel Ritchie’s support act during his shows in the Benelux and she shared the stage with the Dutch singer Karin Bloemen.
Edsilia’s third album will be released at the start of this year. This will be a completely Dutch album for the very first time.
Songwriter/composer Tjeerdo, who is also married to Edsilia, has been closely involved with the realisation of the CD from the very start. He has written most of the music, some of the lyrics and also produced the new album.
The 'Meer Dan Ooit' (More than Ever) CD has turned out to be a very varied and soulful pop album with beautiful ballads, alternating with great upbeat tempo songs.
The soul diva herself also kept her end up with the creation of the CD. She wrote many of the lyrics herself, sometimes together with others, and also had a great deal of involvement from a musical point of view.
Her new CD is all about real themes like friendship, love and the wellbeing of others. Themes which are all very close to Edsilia’s heart. This means ‘Meer Dan Ooit’ is a personal statement by a woman who knows what she stands for. "This album shows exactly what my life is all about. I have never been so aware of the things I have experienced, all the things I can still learn," says Edsilia.
As her CD was being released, Edsilia also started a theatre tour of a large number of Dutch theatres at the start of 2007. One of the songs she sings during these shows is called ‘Nooit meer zonder jou’ (Never without you again).
This song has been rewritten in English just for the Eurovision Song Contest and entitled 'On top of the World'. The songwriters are Tjeerdo (also composer), Martin Gijzemijter and Maarten ten Hove. Edsilia will be representing the Netherlands with this song during the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki.
Edsilia feels the lyrics are a very strong element of this song, as they are about the very familiar contrast between wanting to be independent and strong, yet at the same time not wanting to be without your loved one. From a musical point of view, she feels the song excels as a result of the modest verses, a fantastic chorus and mysterious bridges.
Edsilia is very much looking forward to the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest. "I never used to really watch the Eurovision Song Contest as a child. However, since taking part myself in 1998, I find the contest incredibly exciting to watch. Of course you can’t wait to see what the Netherlands comes up with every year and how the international audiences perceive it."
Edsilia is not willing to provide us with a real prediction for her own song. "We will have to see how we fare musically. I do hope we manage to get through the semi-final. That is now my first goal. We’ll see what happens after that."
Edsilia says the audience in Helsinki will see a very different Edsilia than the one who performed in Birmingham nine years ago. "I was just a girl back in 1998, uninhibited and I hadn’t yet seen much of the world. Now I am an adult, happily married, more confident and I have naturally also experienced a great deal more. I feel fantastic and am ready to face all challenges which happen to come my way. Helsinki is one of those challenges and one I am going to give my all."
Serbia, Sweden and Belarus top European bookmakers' lists as favourites to win the Eurovision song contest in Helsinki on Saturday. The average odds by seven of the largest bookmakers gave Serbia the top position with 8-1 odds followed by Sweden with 9-1 odds and Belarus with 10-1.
Britain's main bookmaker Ladbrokes was offering odds of 5-1 on Sweden, 6-1 on Serbia and 7-1 on Belarus. Out of the three favourites only Sweden, represented by glam-rockers The Ark, has secured a place in the final on Saturday after finishing in the Top 10 last year. Serbia and Belarus will have to qualify at the semi-final on Thursday.
Fred Bronson, a journalist for US weekly music magazine Billboard, said he also believed Serbia had a good chance to win, but mentioned Switzerland and Andorra as other favourites. "Serbia is very strong this year, but Andorra is coming fast," Bronson told AFP.
Serbia's entry is entitled "Molitva", a love song about the uncertainties between God and man, performed by 23-year old Marija Serifovic. Bronson was pleased with the line-up this year. "We have a good quality and very different styles, new age, pop and even swing with the German band," he said.
Other entries that are expected to place highly are Russia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus. Finnish monster rock group Lordi won the competition last year and host country Finland is again listed among the Top 10 favourites, this time with the more glamorous artist Hanna Pakarinen.
