- Ga Dan Niet (Then Don't Go)
- De Stroom (The Stream)
- Toen Ik Jou Vergat (When I Forgot You)
- Weelderig Waardeloos (Wealthy Worthless)
A jury and televoters each get a 50 percent stake in the outcome. Dutch commentator Daniel Dekker, Hind (2008), René Froger (2009), song writer Eric van Tijn and radio DJ Annemieke Schollaardt take seat in the jury tonight. Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau will present the programme, various former Dutch contestants will perform as interval act.
The song that will be picked tonight will be performed in the second Semi-Final of the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, on the 12th of May in Düsseldorf, Germany.
