O’G3NE are a three piece girl band made up of sisters Lisa, Amy and Shelley Vol. They gained national fame when they who won the fifth season of singing competition the Voice of Holland. Not only that but we are very excited at the announcement this week that the trio will be heading to Kiev in 2017 to represent the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest.
While their Eurovision track has yet to be revealed, the band have a strong back catalogue under their belt and if their past records are anything to go by then we are in for a real treat.
The girls have covered many international hits when they appeared on the Voice of Holland, judged by other Dutch Eurovision alums Trijntje Oosterhuis and the Common Linnets Ilse DeLange. These songs included Ed Sheeran’s ‘I See Fire’, ‘Emotion’ by the Beegees/Destiny’s Child, ‘Mirrors’ by Justin Timberlake and One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’.
Since winning the Voice of Holland, O’G3NE having enjoyed incredible success with their third studio album entitled ‘We Got This’ and have had a number of hit singles including ‘Wings to Fly’, ‘Take the Money and Run’, ‘Magic’ and ‘Loved You First’.
Although they have their own individual music style and a poppy back catalogue, one can’t help but compare the group to UK girl group Little Mix. Not only are they a girl group who gained success by winning a TV talent search show, but even if you look at the titles of their songs you can see some similarities ‘Magic’/’Black Magic’ and ‘Wings to Fly’/’Wings’.
But what do you make of the Netherlands’ choice for 2017? Let us know with comments below!
