With his Eurovision winning entry recently going from strength to strength, Duncan has landed another gig on U.S television! It has been announced that he will perform ‘Arcade’ with FLETCHER on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next month.

Promoting across the pond

Eurovision 2019 winner Duncan Laurence only made his U.S TV debut last week, and he’ll be back on the screens on 6 April. This time, he will be performing the duet version of ‘Arcade’ with FLETCHER. The American Singer-Songwriter joined forces with Duncan to release this version back in November.

The rise of ‘Arcade’

Although it is almost 2 years after Duncan won Eurovision with ‘Arcade’, the song started to go viral in the last few months. As told by BBC Newsbeat, ‘Arcade’ has been widely used on TikTok for various purposes, from being the soundtrack to make-up tutorials to assisting fan made videos from Harry Potter fans. In addition, it has also made an appearance in the UK’s official chart, peaking at #29.

In January, ‘Arcade’ became the most streamed Eurovision song on Spotify, surpassing Mahmood’s ‘Soldi’.

Duncan at the Eurovision Song Contest

The Netherlands internally selected Duncan Laurence to represent them at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with the song โ€œArcadeโ€. In Tel Aviv, Duncan brought The Netherlands to the Grand Final for a fourth consecutive year. In addition to his participation in the Grand Final, Duncan also won the Press Award at the Marcel Bezenรงon Awards as voted for by the Press.

After 44 years, Duncan managed to win the Eurovision Song Contest for The Netherlands. The last time the country won the contest was in 1975 with โ€œDing-a-dongโ€. After the cancellation of Eurovision Song Contest 2020, Duncan Laurence is still the reigning champion until May 2021.
