"De diepte" (Dutch: [də ˈdiptə]; transl. "The depth") is a single by Dutch singer S10 (Stien den Hollander). The song represented the Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy, after being selected by the Dutch public broadcaster AVROTROS.[1] The song peaked at number two in the Netherlands. It is the first time since 2010 that a song sung entirely in Dutch represented the country at Eurovision.

Background

The song tells about Den Hollander's most personal memories. According to Den Hollander, "It's a tribute to the sadness and memories that you carry with you. Everyone experiences difficult times in their lives. That's something we all have in common and I hope [people] will feel less alone when [they] listen to the song".[2]

Release

The song was released on 3 March 2022 at 11:15 (CET) in the Tuschinski Theatre.[3][4]

Eurovision Song Contest

Selection

On 24 May 2021, shortly after the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021, the Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS announced its participation in the following edition and opened submissions for interested artists to present its selection committee with up to three songs, with the deadline being 31 August 2021. The selection committee consisted of Eric van Stade, Cornald Maas, Jan Smit, Sander Lantinga, Coen Swijnenberg [nl] and Joyce Hoedelmans. The selection process was carried out under the supervision of Dutch head of delegation Lars Lourenco.[5]

AVROTROS announced S10 as the Dutch entrant on 7 December 2021.[6] On 25 January 2022, the creative team to support S10 in the preparations for her entry was announced, consisting of creative supervisor Wouter van Ransbeek, director Marnix Kaart and lighting designer Henk Jan van Beek.[7] On 21 February, Frits Huffnagel [nl] claimed that the song would be presented on 3 March, which was confirmed by the broadcaster the following day.

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. On 25 January 2022, an allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. The Netherlands was placed into the first semi-final, held on 10 May 2022, and performed in the first half of the show.[8]

In the first semi final, The Netherlands qualified for the final, as the last qualifier to be announced.[9]
