Anouk has confirmed today that she will be representing The Netherlands in Eurovision 2013. She said this morning on Facebook: “To my fans… I will represent the Netherlands next year at the Eurosong festival… I’m looking forward to that… let’s hope for the best!”. The song will be chosen internally and presented in late February.
Anouk who was earlier in the year told by TROS that she had to go through the National Final was then brought in for talks between the broadcaster and herself. This announcement means that this will be the first time that both song and artist have been selected internally in over a decade.
