The Common Linnets (NL) ESC Radio 'Best Group' Award 2014

A common phrase says ‘the winner takes it all’. Well, maybe not! At the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Dutch representatives The Common Linnets did a brilliant performance of their entry Calm After The Storm and finished second in the competition. The song went on to become the most commercially successful entry of the 2014 Contest.

It was a no. 1 hit in The Netherlands, went top 5 in Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Ireland and Spain, and reached the UK top 10. Last December, in the annual ‘ESC Top 250’ fan voting for the most popular Eurovision songs of all time, Calm After The Storm went straight to no. 2.

Before they took off to Nashville, USA, last weekend, we met the Common Linnets to hand over the ‘Best Group’ trophies they won in the 2014 ESC Radio Awards voting.  In our interview with the guys, they speak about their Eurovision success and their work on the new album. You can watch the interview right below. An audio podcast is available too, and please find more photos at the bottom of the page.
