The Netherlands was represented by Ruth Jacott, with the song '"Vrede", at the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place in Millstreet, Ireland on 15 May. The song was chosen at the Dutch national final on 26 March.

Final[edit]

The final took place on 26 March at the Discotheque Escape in Amsterdam, hosted by Paul de Leeuw. All eight songs were performed by Jacott, with the winner being decided by juries in the twelve Dutch provinces, who awarded votes as 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1. (For reasons which are unclear, on the night the votes were announced in multiples of 1,000 - i.e. the favourite song was awarded 10,000 points.) "Vrede" won by a 7-point margin, having been ranked first by four of the juries.[1]
