The country hosting the Eurovision in Concert 2013 is not going to attend the event as 12points.tv reports today based on Dutch Newspaper AD. The reason is unknown. The event which takes place on April 13 is aiming to have at least 25 countries in the line up and once again Netherlands will be missing! The organizers of the event say that Anouk will be very busy preparing for Eurovision Song Contest 2013 but we all know she is just snubbing the event.
In the meantime there seems to be a problem with the Dutch song as Anouk already sang parts of her Eurovision song Birds on the radio in 2011 – listen here (at 7:20). Due to a change of rules this year this is not likely to lead to disqualification. The Dutch singer sang the snippet at Dutch Radio 3. Listen to the recent live snippet of the song as previously reported.
