Meiden roepen al jaren dat ze naar het festival willen, maar als ze mogen moet er even snel een nummertje komen. Alleen een fantastische act geeft nog een kansje op de finale.

quote:Romeo – 10 PointsThis is 100% AMAZING! These girls can sing! The harmonies are amazing! The song has everything you could wish in a song! They WILL deliver on the night and this will be a dark horse. Could we be seeing a Common Linnets part 2? I think both juries and televote will love this song. Viva Nederland!Matt – 10 PointsThose harmonies, I even can’t. You can tell OG3NE has been singing together for a long time, they know their voices well and how to properly harmonize. Needless to say that I’m a big fan of the voices. But there is more to this song and the way it builds and builds is just perfection. This is a pearl and just a wonderful piece, Wilson Phillips 2017 (look it up, “Hold On” is a classic). Excellent production and execution, the Dutch did it again and I’m in love with it.Zack – 9 PointsYou have to love how OG3NE scream the second coming of Wilson Phillips and their song is likely a reference to the 90s act’s second album “Shadows and Light”. If Eurovision was simply based upon vocal capabilities, the ladies would be a definite top candidate for the win. However, the song feels dated, like something that should have appeared on an early-90s Wilson Philips album and could have competed with the likes of MeKaDo in 1994. However, let’s be honest: the song is simply a vehicle to showcase the fantastic vocals of the ladies. The Dutch have been prone to a bipolar approach to staging (i.e., either great or horrible), so let’s hope for the best!Nenad – 9 PointsThis is a song, and what kind of song! Song starts no promising until the first refrain and culmination – when they take it, and don’t leave . The message is very important, also I like the way their voices are combined. Modern, powerful and quality – three words. With a bit of HQ stage effects, this song will look great on the Eurovision stage!Calvin – 7 PointsMuch of the praise this entry has received has come from two factors: first, the genuine, authentic feel of the lyrics, written for their terminally ill mother. I definitely get this too. The lyrics feel like the honest thoughts of a young woman about the situation. The production is maybe a bit too heavy-handed in parts, but the soul still comes through. The other aspect is their harmonies, which I’m less fond of. They aren’t as well-balanced as I’d like them to be, but this could be just a sound mixing problem that gets fixed by Kyiv. It’s a very sweet effort in the end.Robert – 6 PointsThis trio of sisters have given us something with a rather excellent build. It bursts properly into life just over halfway through but still keeps the listener’s attention through the first part. It will be interesting to see if they can keep the harmonising up well live as it will be quite the challenge, but if they pull that off, they could do rather well. Its main problem is that it is a somewhat easily forgettable song and if they end up early in the running order, then that could hurt them badly as it risks getting overshadowed (pardon the pun!). The song style is not one which massively appeals to me, but I appreciate that it’s been done well and I certainly enjoy parts of it. Should be a fun entry to watch!Ferdi – 6 PointsI had high hopes for my own country as soon as I heard O’G3NE would represent us. Their voices just go amazing together! The song however isn’t as great. It’s a solid ballad but it kind of fades away amongst the other ballads. Beautiful lyrics and great voices, though.Sean – 5 PointsA 90s RnB album called, it wants its filler back! Now to be fair, the sisters have a great vocal and harmonise well between the trio, but the song itself is a dud. It doesn’t take me to an exciting place or anywhere at all really. I can see why it has its fans, but in a year where a fair few countries have opted to take it slow I can’t see this one standing out enough to make an impact on the scores. Perfectly average for me.Gerry – 4 PointsDon’t get me wrong: OG3NE has amazing vocals. Their impeccable harmonies are sure to get them a good amount of points at Eurovision. However, the song itself isn’t all that impressive. It’s incredibly forgettable; even after listening to this dozens of times, the lyrics and the melody just don’t stick. That just doesn’t bode very well for the trio.Stefan – 4 PointsI’ve expected so much more from this girls. I wanted to hear something that could bring me up, but it’s rather dull… 🙁 Since the song is written by their father, it should have been much better.David – 3 PointsI understand why Eurovision fans, long have wanted these 3 girls to sing for Netherlands, they are in complete harmony. They are even sisters, I might give them some cheap points now, but it’s like angels singing. On the other hand, as sweet the song is, the song does not capture me. I just can’t stand ballads, I find them so boring, and that’s just how it is. The girls are indeed talented together, but it doesn’t save the song for me.Final Score: 73
