On 5 October, current Eurovision Song Contest winner Duncan Laurence announced something very exciting. His life seems to be going very well both in a professional and in a personal way. His boyfriend Jordan has proposed to him.
Meet Duncan’s fiance Jordan
It was back in May when Duncan announced to have a relationship with Jordan Garfield. The couple announced their engagement on Instagram. “I proposed Duncan to marry me and he said yes”, Jordan wrote. Duncan made the announcement with an Instagram story showing his ring and writing “I love you Jordan”. Apart from the love between each other, the couple has a common passion for song writing. Duncan’s most recent single “Last Night” was a work from them together.
About the marriage
Now that the couple is officially engaged, we can get news of their eventual wedding at any time. However, it is not yet known when it will take place. Unfortunately, this could take a while due to the corona crisis. In the meantime, the two can relax and enjoy their engagement.
Duncan Laurence at the Eurovision Song Contest
In January 2019, Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS revealed that Duncan Laurence will represent The Netherlands in Tel Aviv for the Eurovision Song Contest. The rather unknown young singer made Europe emotional and maybe even tear with his beautiful ballad “Arcade”. Quickly after his song got released, Duncan made his way to the top of the betting odds and never gave that first place away. In Tel Aviv he performed in a very strong second semi final, between Norway and North Macedonia. He managed to qualify and performed in 12th spot in the grand final. The voting was so exciting! At the end of the jury votes, The Netherlands were in third place, close enough to still catch the win. With 261 points, Duncan received enough points to win the 64th Eurovision Song Contest. The first Dutch win in 44 years!
