Unfortunately, La Zarra, who was announced in the line up and participated at the press meeting, in a statement in her personal Twitter account, announced that she has to cancel her performance at the concert , due to personal circumstances.

The event was presented by Cornald Maas and Hila Noorzai. Cornald has been the Dutch Eurovision commentator since 2006. Hila is a radio DJ who was also part of the selection committee that chose the Netherlands’ representatives this year. She was also press conference host at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam. As a special guest, the 1997 Eurovision winner, Katrina, enchanted the audience with ‘Love Shine A Light.’

Eurovision in Concert served as a crucial preview of what’s to come in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Participating countries seized the opportunity to send their artists to Amsterdam for a live performance before the main event in the host city.

Beyond the performances, Eurovision in Concert provided a platform for the Eurovision community, bringing journalists and artists together. It offered a chance to reconnect with old friends, forge new connections, and share in the collective excitement leading up to the main event.
