The Dutch Final was due to be held on January 23rd at the Tivoli in Utrecht, however due to a strike by the musicians in the orchestra, the final was never broadcast. Instead, Annie Palmen sang all 3 songs for an “expert” jury who picked the winner.
|1||Kijk, daar is de zon||Look, there is the sun||
|2||Geen ander||Nobody else||
|3||Hoor je mij||Do you hear me||
The song title was changed to “Een speeldoos” (A musicbox) for the ESC where Annie Palmen came equal 13th. She previously took part in the 1960 Dutch Final.
