The Netherlands this year chose Jeangu Macrooy as its 2020 representative. Jeangu was born on 6 November 1993, in Paramaribo, Suriname.
He started playing the guitar at the age of 13. In 2011, he formed a band called Between Towers along with his twin brother Xillan. Their first album was released in 2013. A year later, he moved to the Netherlands, where his musical career was boosted. He has appeared on a TV show in the Netherlands and he has been nominated for an Edison Award – very prestigious Dutch music awards. Since then he has released two studio albums, one live album, one EP and a couple of singles.
His entry “Grow” was composed by Jeangu Macrooy and Pieter Perquin.
The Netherlands – the host country – was going to perform direct at the final. It was preallocated at place 23. Dutch would also be able to vote at the first semifinal.
Jeangu will represent the Netherlands in the 2021 edition of the contest!
