Country singer Ilse DeLange on Dutch Eurovision hopeful list

Country singer Ilse DeLange is one of the candidates to represent the Netherlands at next year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, the Telegraaf reports.

DeLange told a television gossip show she is open to taking part in the contest. DJ Armin van Buuren denied he is a candidate but singer Waylon is also on the list, the Telegraaf says.

Public broadcaster Tros will announce the Dutch representative on November 25. Last year singer Anouk became the first Dutch competitor to make the final in nine years.
