It’s official – we’ll have three hosts for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam – Edsilia Rombley, Jan Smit and Chantal Janzen.
Jan Smit confirmed the news via his Twitter account as follows:
About the hosts:
A two time Eurovision contestant, Edsilia finished 4th in 1998 with the fan favourite ‘Hemel en aarde’ and 2007 with ‘On Top Of The World’ which unfortunately didn’t make it out of the semi final stage.
She’s released six studio albums and continues to work on Dutch television.
Jan is a member of the group De Toppers, who had in 2009 represented The Netherlands at Eurovision, although he didn’t join the group until well after their ESC adventure. He is also a very well known television presenter both in his home country but several neighbouring ones too. Jan was born in 1985 in the town of Volendam.
A multitalented actress, singer and television presenter, Chantal was born in 1979 in Tegelen. She has hosted hit Dutch television shows such as Hollands Got Talent and The Voice Of Holland. She’s started in numerous musicals too such as Tarzan, Saturday Night Fever, Beauty and the Beast and Wicked!
2020 sees a reduction in the number of hosts back down to three, and it’ll therefore be interesting to see how the Dutch will divide up their hosting duties.
