With just a week to go until rehearsals begin for the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, we meet Fource from The Netherlands. 2017 marks the first time ever that a boy band will represent the country in Junior Eurovision.
Together Max, Jannes, Niels & Ian make Fource. Right after they were selected for the semi-final of the Dutch Junior Eurovision selection, they asked the public to help them come up with a name for the boy band. Many fans submitted their ideas and eventually they chose the name Fource! This name refers to the group of four and their strength.
Max (14) has already competed in The Voice Kids. He also played several parts in musicals. Jannes (14) started his career at a young age and has already played in several musicals. The third member of the group is Niels (12) and he was part of the famous Dutch children’s choir Kinderen voor Kinderen for three years. Last but not least is Ian (13). He only recently started singing, but already made it into this boy band and is ready for his first international performance.
Right after winning the Dutch national selection for Junior Eurovision Fource proved extremely popular in The Netherlands gaining fans from all over the country. They will perform Love Me at the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. You can watch the official video below.
Although the four boys live in different parts of The Netherlands, they often come together to sing, practice or just have fun. They also make a lot of videos on the YouTube channel of the Dutch Junior Song Contest (Juniorsongfestival.NL), and they’re planning to make a lot more fun videos during their stay in Georgia!
The last time The Netherlands was represented by a boy in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2009, when Ralf won the international final in Kyiv with Click Clack. The Netherlands has participated in every single edition of Junior Eurovision since the competition began in 2003.
