The Netherlands this year chose S10 as its Eurovision representative. Stien den Hollander was born on November 8, 2000, in Hoorn, the Netherlands and it is known widely by her stage name S10.
Her career started in 2016 when she self-released her first EP on SoundCloud. Shortly after she got noticed and signed with a record label. In 2018 and early 2019 she released two more EPs, with her debut album being released on November 8, 2019 – at her 19th birthday. Her EPs are named after types of medications and in the songs she describes the struggle with mental illness.
In 2020, she released her 2nd studio album, which reached the 5th place on the Dutch charts. A year later, she released “Adem je in”, her first single to be charted. In late 2021, S10 was internally selected for representing the Netherlands at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Her entry “De Diepte” is composed by Stien den Hollander (S10) and Arno Krabman. The song is the first entry of the country to be in Dutch since 2010. It is also noteworthy that the song reached the 2nd place on the local charts.
The Netherlands will perform 8th in the first semifinal.
