Eurovision Song Contest night. Will you be in front of your television tonight or do you no longer care. It has been a long time since both the Netherlands and Belgium made it to the final. My friend and journalist Johan De Paepe found the Dutch entry as different and as refreshing as I did when I saw it, he twittered "A rose in a pool of mud." Anouk looked amazing and the song is different... but maybe that is exactly what this contest needs. Birds is a very atmospheric song, perfect for a classic dance approach. Anouk asked Igone de Jongh, prima ballerina at the Dutch National Ballet, to star in the video for the song. Kind of Nick Cave like (we all remember Where the wild roses grow) and not with a happy ending, but strong, very strong.
