THE NETHERLANDS – With only half a year to go until the Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam starts, more and more details become clear. For example, the theme of the event recently became known and we are anxiously waiting to know who will take on the presentation.
There are different names for this prestigious job. Will it be Eva Jinek, Chantal Janzen or Jan Smit? And what role does the world-famous NikkieTutorials play? Although nothing has been released yet, RTL Boulevard expert Aran Bade said in the broadcast that the name of Michiel Huisman is increasingly mentioned as a possible presenter.
Sietse Bakker, the producer of the Eurovision Song Contest, is trying to keep his lips stiff on opposite of RTL Boulevard, but says:
“That’s a nice name. Who knows. ”When asked if conversations have already been made with the actor, Sietse says:“ I am not saying anything, but I am practicing my poker face again. ”There is, however, a preference for three presenters:“ In Sweden it was with a , last year with four. A presenter is a bit poor, you have to imagine that he gets sick. Four is a bit much. Then three is actually very beautiful. But I do not exclude that we also end up with two or four. “
The organization is in any case already at an advanced stage.
“We are almost out. It is a very difficult puzzle. Who do you want there, who can, those people fit together. You can make a good division of tasks, you can build a good story around it. We have a long list of presenters but also outside of it. You also look at actors, actresses, singers and influencers. Ultimately, that little puzzle has to be right, “says Sietse.
The decor of the Eurovision Song Contest is already round, Sietse Bakker reveals:
“We have even secretly chosen. If you choose a decor, you then work it out with technical drawings and lighting designs. You have to make a choice quickly. We have that choice already made and we will announce soon.”
