EUROVISION 2023 REVIEW: Netherlands

As promised, I will be reviewing each Eurovision entry in the most inconsistent way possible. The entries will be reviewed in a random order using my personal wheel on the Wheel of Names website.

Next is the Netherlands. They’re sending Mia Nicolai and Dion Cooper with Burning Daylight

Date chosen: November 1, 2022 (artist); March 1, 2023 (song)

Method: Mia and Dion were chosen by Dutch TV station AVROTROS to represent the Netherlands in Liverpool. Their song “Burning Daylight” was released on the official Eurovision channel 4 months later. The song was partially written by recent Dutch Eurovision winner Duncan Lawrence

What I think: I get where they are going with this, but it’s no Arcade. I initially wanted to place it in my top 10, but decided against it because the song just doesn’t connect with me as much as I would like. One of the weirdest tropes to come out of it was how they performed the song at the preview parties and the aftermath. Anyway, it’s not my cup of tea.

Ranking: 6.5/10

Chance (of qualifying and/or winning): Most signs go from maybe to no, not a sure yes

Live performances in the Netherlands and Spain
