Big Dutch names are ready for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest and there are quite some known faces among them!
One of the world’s most famous DJs, Afrojack will star in an act called ‘Music Binds Us’ (together with a classical orchestra of young talents) in which household names in The Netherlands will perform: Wulf and Glennis Grace!
During the act, classical music by the orchestra and Afrojack’s dance music (which might well be The Netherlands’ biggest export product) will be fused.
It will consist of two parts with the first one being a film, directed by celebrated Dutch director Tim Oliehoek.
A central role in the film is reserved for the Rotterdam city centre and the famous Erasmus Bridge where Wulf will serve the vocals over music by Afojack.
Then, during the second part in Rotterdam Ahoy, Afrojack will blow off the roof with his music once again while Glennis Grace (who has, next to a shining career in The Netherlands and a high placing in America’s Got Talent, represented her country at Eurovision in 2005 with ‘My Impossible Dream’) will accompany the dance music with her exquisite vocal power!
Head of Show Gerben Bakker has stated:
We want to show the best that The Netherlands has to offer during this edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. Not only with Afrojack but also with top vocal talents like Wulf and Glennis Grace. Tim Oliehoek is also one of the best directors of The Netherlands in my opinion. It will be interesting to see what he will create with this unique project. The orchestra consists of young talent and has been formed specially for the Grand Final. After this difficult year I hope that during this act all of Europe can forget the bad times for a while.
