During the interview, Cornald noted that S10 is the kind of artist the Netherlands used to be able to only dream of as a potential Eurovision entry. S10 says that participating in the Eurovision Song Contest is a great adventure and cool experience for her. De Diepte is a big success in The Netherlands. It is currently occupying the number 1 spot on the Spotify charts and has over 650 thousand streams as of March 6.

The Netherlands at Eurovision
The Netherlands is one of the founding countries of the ESC, having performed the very first song ever on the Eurovision stage back in 1956. While the result of “De Vogels van Holland” is unknown, the Netherlands have clocked 5 wins, with their most recent in 2019. However the Netherlands are also known to have had the longest ever non qualification streak in the semi-final era – they missed out on the final a whopping 8 times between 2005-2012. As the host of 2021, they automatically qualified to the final in Rotterdam. Their song “Birth of a new Age” reached 23rd place, with 11 points, all from the juries.
