In January 2020 it was announced that Jeangu would represent the Netherlands at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest with Grow. Due to the contest’s subsequent cancellation amid the COVID-19 pandemic, this was not possible.
Soon after the contest’s cancellation however, Dutch broadcaster AVROTROS soon announced that Jeangu will represent the Netherlands as the host country in 2021.
