Anouk and The Common Linnets have both done wonders for The Dutchies. In 2013, Anouk (who composed Walk Along) was the first Dutch act to qualify for eight years and The Common Linnets even achieved 2nd place last year. Will Trijntje Oosterhuis have the same success? Here's what we think...

Ana: I really like this song, and specially the chorus. It’s very catchy and easy to learn and that’s always a good thing. Anyway, I think that Trijntje will have to work on the staging because I have the feeling that she doesn't know what to do and how to act at some points of the song. 8/10

Ilkar: Why-ay-ay-ay.... This has some good ingredients and she's great and likable but the song is so repetitive. Why-ay-ay-ay? It would be a perfect 2:15 song, the rest is just why-ay-ay..... Why? 4/10

Jack: I adore Walk Along! Maybe the Why-ay-ay-ay is too repetitive and annoying but remember the majority of people won't hear the song until the night itself - so it's going to stick in people's mind. That can only be a good thing. Trijntje's voice is always excellent and I can't wait to see her perform it live.. Hopefully it'll come across well on screen. The Netherlands are so qualifying! But there's something stopping me from awarded her full marks. #TeamLittleTrain. 9.5/10

Jess: The song is really really catchy, and I think Trijntje has brilliant vocals! 7/10

John: Never to be underestimated, The Netherlands provides us with another strong entry this year. The strength of the song lies in its simplicity. With a  catchy tune and a reliable voice, Trijntje delivers what could be another dark horse in the 2015 final. 8/10

OUR VERDICT - 36.5/50
