I look forward to providing commentary in the broadcasts with Sander, all the more because of his musical know-how and humor. Sander has never hidden his love for the Eurovision Song Contest, which I appreciate very much of course.

People around me have asked me if I would ever want to be the host of the festival. After all, I am a big fan! My answer was always that I would rather be the commentator. So I feel very honored. Especially because this year the festival is organized in the Netherlands, I think this is the best job ever.
