Sieneke influenced a lot of criticism during Eurovision: ‘It touches you’

Let’s go back to the moment Sieneke was selected as a candidate during the National Song Contest. In addition to Sieneke, Vinzzent, Loekz, Marlous and Peggy Mays, they also took a bullet in place on the Eurovision stage and the race was bloodthirsty: it ended in a tie. Ultimately, it was up to Pierre Cartner to decide who could travel to Moscow, but that turned out to be a very embarrassing moment. Pierre, or Father Ibrahim, refused the choice. “I can’t do that. I think they’re both equally strong.” After some persistence from broadcaster Yolanthi, he finally shouted, “Okay, Senik,” before leaving the stage in anger.

“Yes, that was a very strange evening,” Sieneke now tells Art Rooijakkers about her. “It was incredibly exciting. He didn’t know up front that he had to make a choice and he found that very difficult.” For us as a viewer, the moment actually lasted minutes, not to mention Sieneke. “I thought, Please say something! When I finally heard my name, it was crazy.”

Although the moment was strange, Sieneke does not view it negatively. In fact, she is only grateful to Pierre for giving her a chance. What she finds difficult is the criticisms she received later in the run-up to Moscow. Sieneke: “It was about the song, about me as a person, my poetry would be ‘paternal’ to a lot of people, my clothes weren’t good. I thought: Wow, that’s what people think about me a lot.”

The singer violently agrees to a girl who is only seventeen years old. “It really hurts. It catches.” But even so, at that moment, she was also living her dream. “It’s something that I look forward to with pride.”

But what she is most proud of is that she is currently still allowed to play in front of people with her own songs. And let’s not forget: She’s my mom. “I really like the set. My mom is during the week and I put on glitter and makeup on the weekend, curly your hair and go!”
