Who the heck are O’G3NE?

The trio O’G3NE features twin sisters Amy Vol and Shelley Vol and their older sister Lisa Vol. The name comes from their mother’s blood type and that they are three women genetically connected.1

How did O’G3NE become a known quantity?

On the non-Eurovision side of things, the Vol sisters won the fifth series of The Voice of Holland in 2014. Their single “Magic,” which they performed on the finale, reached #3 on the Dutch singles chart. They also did a cover of Wilson Phillips’ “Hold On” because… obvs. That reached #86.

This past September, the trio released the album We Got This, which reached #1 on the Dutch charts.

Does O’G3NE have any previous Eurovision connections?

Oh boy, do they. The sisters represented the Netherlands in the 2007 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. If you saw the documentary Sounds Like Teen Spirit, this was that Contest though O’G3NE was not featured. Their song was called “Adem in, adem uit” (“Breathe In, Breathe Out”):

Unfortunately, Lisa, Amy & Shelley did not fare well at the Contest, finishing 11th out of 17 countries.

Where can I follow O’G3NE online?

  1. I was hoping it meant “original gangstas 3 Netherlands.” Ah well.
