The Netherlands in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
The first dutch participation in the contest goes back to 2003, when the contest started to take place. Since then the country has participated in every edition. Among their 15 appearances they have one victory in 2009, when Ralf Mackenbach won with his song “Click clack”. Two years later in 2011, Rachel was very close to reach the second victory for the country with the song “Teenager”, but at the end Georgia won it all.
