was already a succesful singer in her home country before performing at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1987 as the Dutch representative, as a part of the girlgroups Tulip and Babe. After Eurovision she also started a career as a presenter. Together with Eurovision-artists Maggie MacNeal and Sandra Reemer (later on replaced by Justine Pelmelay) she toured as the Dutch Diva’s. She performed as a special guest star in 2018 at the concerts by De Toppers (Eurovision 2009) in the Johan Cruyff Arena.
Unfortunately Marga could not host the show after all, as a result of physical discomfort. Singer and presenter Laura Vlasblom (former member of Frizzle Sizzle, ESC 1986) was so kind as to take her place. With just a few days of preparation she did an excellent job!
