"Je vecht nooit alleen", (You never fight alone) is a song by the Dutch band 3JS. The English version, Never alone, was the Dutch entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 in Düsseldorf, Germany. 3JS were internally selected by Dutch broadcaster TROS to represent their country. At the national final Nationaal Songfestival 2011 they sang 5 songs. Je vecht nooit alleen was the favourite of both the professional jury and the televoters.[1] The song was performed in the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 semi-final at 12 May 2011 but failed to place in final.[2]

Chart performance[edit]

On 5 February the song entered the Dutch Single Top 100 chart reaching fifth place, before reaching the number one spot the next week. A few weeks later the song made nr. 1 again in the English version.[3]
