The 9th edition of Eurovision in Concert will take place in Amsterdam on Saturday 8th April 2017. Once again, the Melkweg concert hall in the heart of the Dutch capital will provide stage for many of the hopefuls participating in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. Today, we can exclusively reveal who the first act will be!
The concert will be hosted by Dutch Eurovision Song Contest commentator Cornald Maas and former Icelandic participant Selma who performed in both 1999 and 2005. Along with Yohanna (2009), Selma holds the record for Iceland's best ever placing in the Eurovision Song Contest. She finished second in Jerusalem in 1999 with her song All Out Of Luck.
In what has become a Eurovision in Concert tradition, the female host will treat the audience to her Eurovision entries during the show.
First act confirmed
The first act for next year’s Eurovision in Concert is Dutch girl band Og3ne. The three sisters are currently working hard to find the perfect Eurovision entry and on 8th April they will perform it live for the audience in Amsterdam. More acts will be revealed by the organisers over the course of the coming weeks.
