Today, TROS held a press conference about their plans for Eurovision 2012. Songfestival.web-log.nl reported that they have a confirmation that TROS will indeed go with the idea of an open National Final. The last time the country had a true open National Final was in 2005. TROS has confirmed that it will be an open National Final! Everyone can submit an entry into this suitcase: artists, song writers and composers!
The final procedure will be as follows:
- Anyone can submit an entry from now until September 30th.
- There will be one show in January, where either six or seven entries will perform, depending on the quality of the entries.
- The date when we will know the artists and the songs will be November 1st.
This is the final decision that TROS made. For the first time since 2005, the national final is open to any artist, singer, or songwriter.
