Trijntje feels very confident about her song "It is really catchy. I guess it's different to what you usually expect from me, but I have an ambition to win and give it my all". When asked why she wanted to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest, she said, "It is really cool that Anouk and The Common Linnets did it. Now i'm daring! I find it exciting, but it is also an honour to represent our country".
Anouk, who wrote the song, came 9th at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö with the song Birds.
Trijntje will compete in one of the two Semi-Finals of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, Austria on the 19th or 21st of May. The Grand Final takes place on the 23rd of May.
