S10 is in the deep ☁

Next up it’s S10 from the Netherlands, singing her bleak and beautiful ballad Die Diepte. That means 'the deep’ in Dutch – it’s the first time Netherlands have sung in Dutch since 2010, when they failed to qualify for the Grand Final. Will the story be different this time? We’ll know in a couple of hours…

Incidentally, there are a whole bunch of Dutch people next to us in the Delegation Bubble singing the Ooohs and Aaaahs really loudly.
