The Netherlands: Jeangu Macrooy to Rotterdam

Jeangu Macrooy will represent host-nation The Netherlands at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest, after being internally selected.

Born 1993 in Paramaribo, Suriname, Jeangu discovered his musical passion when he received a guitar age 13. He later moved to The Netherlands in 2014, after understanding that his love for music was more than a hobby. He has been nominated for an Edison Award twice and has participated in several Dutch festivals.

I am indescribably honoured! It’s a dream come true and the most beautiful thing that has come my way so far. My team and I are excited to make the Netherlands proud! Let’s go!

Statement from Dutch representative, Jeangu Macrooy.

Jeangu’s song will be released at a later date.

The song he delivered touched us right away. We are very happy that Jeangu wants to go on this journey with us!

Statement from Eric van Stade, managing director of AVROTROS
