The 2011 Dutch representatives at the Eurovision Song Contest, the trio 3JS, have been left with two band members. Guitarist Jaap de Witte has left the group due to neurological problems. The condition had begun to affect his ability to play. The sad news will come as a shock to fans anticipating the band’s concert tour which is scheduled to begin in three days.
The news came as a surprise to the other two band members. However, the planned concerts, which are to run through to April will go on as scheduled. 3JS represented the Netherlands in Dusseldorf with the song “Never Alone”. They came last in the semi final.
