For our next #2020Points opportunity we are having a look at some of the 60 entries that the Netherlands have entered at Eurovision. This is a great opportunity to revisit old favorites or discover new songs. Each day, for the next 14 days, we will be giving you a clue to a song that has represented the Netherlands. You will need to tell us the title, artist and year of the song we have given you a clue for.
