Dutch broadcaster TROS has received over 450 entries for the Dutch National Selection in 2012. Last night the suitcase (where entries had to be submitted personally) was closed. Six or seven songs will be picked for the NF which will be held somewhere in February. Two weeks ago the amount of songs was around 100, but in the last two weeks (and especially in the last few days) many songs were delivered. The last time an open selection was held (in 2005), 240 songs were submitted.
TROS-manager Peter Kuipers was quite surprised by the amount of songs.
