The Netherlands takes home another win this year, with Dotan’s “Home” gaining the top spot in this month’s Forum Song Contest (FSC) with 172 points.
Dutch singer Dotan Harpenau, better known as simply Dotan, released his studio album 7 Layers in January this year, to resounding domestic success. The album peaked at number 2 on Dutch charts, and the second single from this album, this month’s FSC winner “Home”, entered the Dutch MegaTop50 charts at number 1.
