The Netherlands chose their representative on 23 November 2007, for the Eurovision Song Contest internally. The Netherlands decided that Hind would represent them in Belgrade with the song "Your Heart Belongs to Me". As the Netherlands did not qualify for the final in 2007, the country needed to participate in the first semi-final, on 20 May 2008. However, the Netherlands failed to qualify to compete in the final on 24 May.


For the 2008 contest the spokesperson for the Netherlands was Esther Hart.[1]
