A flop in the making. He sounds too agressive, even in terms of pseudo-country Douwe Bob was 10x times more charming.

This is a very daring choice. Not sure how this will do, it will be interesting to see the staging and how it will actualy do!

This is extremely fully revved up Southern Red Dirt. Like Alabama crossed with Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guns N' Roses.
Like @heppolo said it is an aggressive sound and it will to be down to the staging and the live mixing and sound engineers at the venue to tame it a little.
Not sure how the general public will react to this sound; and comparisons to the Common Linnet's entry will be made.
Southern Country Rock is not very distinctive in terms of different riffs and available chord spectrum; so it's good enough for what it is and certainly it's a killer when played live in concert (outside of a platform as the ESC).
Will give it a go and add it to my Bubbling Under list.

He released two singles from his upcoming album 'The World Can Wait'.
'Outlaw In 'Em' is the song for the Eurovision Song Contest, while 'Back Together' is the other single.

I love this! One of the best entries we've had in my opinion.
Not sure how it'll do at the song contest but I applaud Waylon for taking a risk.
"I got to do things my own way darling. Will you ever let me? Will you ever respect me? No!"

Waylon’s made it to the final. Yay!
The song’s good, I just don’t like the dancers in his act.

The dancers have received mixed reactions,

Did they curse when Netherlands was announced as the last country to qualify? :lol:
