I'll have to admit though. What's The Pressure is my current winner. #Eurovision 😂

In general, we can say there’s a mixed reaction, but many people don’t really seem to believe in Laura’s chances. Adding to that misery is Kate Ryan, who tweeted (in Dutch):
Laura is not mature and sexy enough for this song. I’m sorry, but my vote went to #Tom #Eurosong
We’ll have to wait and see what happens with the next 40 entries, because after all, we only have three at the moment. What do you think of What’s The Pressure? Let us know!
