Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS has announced that Dutch designers Viktor&Rolf will create the stage outfit for S10 at Eurovision 2022. No details have yet been announced as to what her outfit will look like, but they have promised we will see this at her first rehearsal on Saturday 30th April 2022!
S10 is already familiar to the designers; they have recently dressed her for the Edison Awards, a prestigious music event in The Netherlands.
She had this to say about their collaboration:
I am honored that Viktor&Rolf will dress me during the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin. What I’ll be wearing there is still a surprise, but I’m super excited!S10
Viktor&Rolf also noted that they were fans of the singer’s work, and that they were excited to work with her on her journey to Turin.
We are excited to support S10’s journey to Eurovision – who’s music we admire – and we wish her lots of success and good fortune.Viktor&Rolf
S10 will perform her song, “De Diepte”, in the first semi-final of Eurovision 2022 on 10th May.
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.
At Eurovision, The Netherlands will have a new creative team, who you can read about here. Besides releasing her song, S10 has also performed De Diepte live. You can read more about that performance and watch it here.

The Netherlands’ Eurovision Journey
The Netherlands is one of the founding countries of Eurovision, 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.
