Schulte gets the task to Lisbon to do better than its predecessors. That seems to be not too difficult, because in the past five years ended up in Germany, that if lender placed automatically for the finals, invariably in the bottom two last places and a second place. The last place in the top 10 was in 2012, when Germany with Roman Lob for the last time a singer afvaardigde. Two years earlier, won for the Germans the euro song contest with singer Lena.
The netherlands also had a small share in the choice for Schulte. In the international jury was a musical star Carolina Dijkhuizen and former radiobaas of 3FM, Radio 538 and Qmusic Florent Luyckx. It was the first time that the Germans an international jury had to determine on their songfestivalact.
Schulte is in Portugal singer Waylon. He represents the Netherlands on the liedjesfestijn in may.
