The (De) Toppers were announced as the representatives of their country in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Russia with the song "Shine". They competed in the second semi-final but failed to reach the final.
Shortly after Eurovision in 2009, Gordon left The (De) Toppers. However, on December 2 it was announced that both Gerard Joling and Gordon will return to The (De) Toppers. They performed in May 2010.
The group made news by member Gordon threatening to boycott the final of Eurovision 2009 if a gay parade, that was scheduled to take place on the same day in Moscow, was violently beaten down. However, the group's failure to qualify for the final left this threat redundant.
