Afrojack, Glennis Grace and Wulf are set to perform in the interval of the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
Afrojack, Glennis Grace and Wulf will be performing in the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam. They will be performing a specially commissioned piece titled “Music Binds Us” and will consist of two parts.
The interval performance will combine classical music and dance music. In the first part, the music will be featured in a film directed by Dutch director Tim Oliehoek. Afrojack and the orchestra will be joined by singer Wulf. In the film, the city centre of Rotterdam and the Erasmus bridge play a role. In the Rotterdam Ahoy, Afrojack and Glennis Grace will bring the act to a musical climax live on stage.
Gerben Bakker, Head of Show commented:
Music connects, especially in these special times. Where once our DJs flew all over the world to make contact with their audience, now the reality is unfortunately different. With this act, we want to send all the energy from Rotterdam to Europe and literally reconnect. Not only between the viewers but also with two unique music styles: the famous Dutch dance music and the sound of the classical orchestra.
He went on to add:
We want to show the best of the Netherlands during this edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. We do this not only with Afrojack, but also with top vocal talents such as Wulf and Glennis Grace
t is also special to see how director Tim Oliehoek puts his teeth into this unique project. In my opinion, he too is one of the best in the Netherlands. The orchestra was specially composed for the Grand Final and consists of young talent. After this special event. years I hope that during this unique act all of Europe can forget the bad times for a while.
