Waylon has been internally selected by Avrotros, the Dutch national broadcaster, to represent The Netherlands in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest. During the week, he presented five potential songs for Eurovision – “Back Together”, “Outlaw In Em”, “The World Can Wait”, “That’s How She Goes”, and “Thanks But No Thanks”. Today, he had made up his mind, and he chose “Outlaw In Em” as the song he is going to take to Eurovision 2018 in Lisbon.
Waylon has also announced that Hans Pannecoucke will once again be his stage director for Eurovision. He directed three Dutch entries in the past – “Calm After The Storm” for The Common Linnets (which Waylon was a member of), “Walk Along” for Trijntje, and “Slow Down” for Douwe Bob. Last year he was the stage director for Manel Navarro’s “Do It For Your Lover”.
