In 'Best Singers' (AVROTROS) last night singer and rapper Glen Faria were the main focus. But it was YouTube star Davina Michelle (22) who stole the show.
While many a Twitterer was not such a fan of the blonde before.
Davina Michelle, who is actually Michelle Hoogendoorn, got international recognition when American singer Pink complimented her in a video. P! Nk did that when she hit the cover of her What about us, sung by Davina, saw. But her name is not known to everyone. That is now, by Dear Singers, but different.
is it bad if I do not know Davina Michelle?#BestSisters

From 'Idols' to 'Best Singers'
The name of the YouTube star will not ring a bell with everyone. But you could also see Davina on television before. Two years ago she participated in RTLs Idols. There she fell off in the preliminary round, but she managed to get through to each other to continue. Now Davina sings in videos on her own YouTube channel, with success. She places a cover every week for her 400,000 subscribers.
'I think it's an honor'
But also with the performance of last night she puts herself on the map equally well. With the number It takes too long, written by Glen, she makes an impression. She liked the lyrics of the song so much that she sang for the first time in Dutch. "That Davina is about her limit to sing a Dutch song, I think is a real honor", said Glen Faria about her performance, which you can view at the top of the article. Davina's interpretation was chosen by Glen as the best of the evening. And Twittering Netherlands completely agreed with that.
