Tuckerville - Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 - Netflix

The Netherlands participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with the song “Calm After the Storm”, written by Ilse DeLange, JB Meijers, Rob Crosby, Matthew Crosby and Jake Etheridge. The song was performed by The Common Linnets, a duo consisting of DeLange and Waylon, two well-known and popular Dutch artists, and formed by DeLange as a platform for Dutch artists to create country, Americana, and bluegrass music. In November 2013 the Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS announced that they had internally selected The Common Linnets to represent the Netherlands at the 2014 contest in Copenhagen, Denmark, with their song first presented to the public in March 2014. In the weeks leading up to the contest, the Netherlands was considered by the bookmakers to be one of the countries most likely to qualify for the final. In the first of two Eurovision semi-finals “Calm After the Storm” came first of the sixteen participating countries, securing its place among the twenty-five other countries in the final. In the Netherlands fifty-fifth Eurovision appearance on 10 May, “Calm After the Storm” finished in second place, receiving 238 points and full marks from eight countries. This was the Netherlands best finish in the contest since 1975. After the show, the song went on to chart in several European countries, reaching number one in Belgium, Iceland and the Netherlands, as well as reaching the top ten in several other countries. The group's self-titled début album, released in May 2014, was also a success in the Netherlands and in other countries. The success of The Common Linnets in the contest was met with wide praise, with many commenting that their triumph was a boost to the musicality and credibility of the contest.

Tuckerville - Eurovision in Concert 2014 - Netflix

Since 2009, Eurovision in Concert has been held in the Netherlands, and has become the largest gathering of Eurovision artists outside of the concert itself. Created by a group of Dutch Eurovision fans, the event was designed to keep the spirit in Eurovision alive in the Netherlands after several disappointing results for the Netherlands and declining interest in the contest in the country. The 2014 event, attended by 1,500 Eurovision fans, was held on 5 April 2014 in the Melkweg music venue in Amsterdam. It featured 25 of the competing countries from the 2014 Eurovision, including the Dutch act The Common Linnets. The event was hosted by singer Sandra Reemer, former Dutch Eurovision representative at the 1972, 1976 and 1979 contests, and Dutch Eurovision commentator Cornald Maas. Special guests included 2013 Eurovision winner Emmelie de Forest and Frizzle Sizzle, Dutch representative in the 1986. Jan Lagermand Lundme, the Head of Show for the 2014 contest, also made a short presentation where the press were shown how the stage would look, as well as a presentation of the postcards for some of the participating countries.
