About S10 and “De Diepte”
S10, also known as Stien den Hollander, is a 21-year-old rap musician. She was signed to hip-hop label Noah’s Ark at 17, and released two albums: Snowsniper (2019) and Vlinders (2020). Snowsniper was awarded an Edison, one of the most prestigious prizes in the Dutch music industry. More recently, S10 was awarded the Pop Stipend, a grant of 10000 euros to support up-and-coming artists. ‘De Diepte’ is the first Dutch-language entry in Eurovision since 2010. The song is “an ode to the sadness and the memories you carry with you”. S10 wrote De Diepte together with Arno Krabman.

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.
