Ten cameras

Eurovision Song Contest expert JJ Kooijman was also present. “He opened and closed the party with Urubaba,” he says in Goedemorgen Nederland on NPO 1. “It was a big party.”

Ghost recorded a live video. “With ten cameras. At one point, Ghost stood in the middle of the room surrounded by a large circle of fans. There was a large hole where he was lifted above the audience.

Open and honest

What makes Ghost so charming? Kooijman: “It brings a deeper layer of poetry in a way that we're not used to. And also his honesty, openness, creativity and the fact that he can really connect with young people. He definitely has a chance.”

Jean-Paul Heck (Editor-in-Chief of Soundz) agrees. “I'm curious to see if he can translate the deeper layer into performance. The question is whether he will do it in English.”
