The Netherlands were present at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, held in Kiev, the Ukraine.
To select their entry, Nederlandse Omroep Stichting (NOS), the Dutch broadcaster, decided to continue with their format of a televised national selection, consisting of four semi-finals and a final. 24 songs in total competed in these semi-finals, with the top two chosen by televoting and by an expert jury progressed to the final. At the final the winner was decided by 50% televoting and 50% from the different juries, with 30% coming from an expert jury, 10% from an international jury and another 10% coming from the listeners of Dutch radio station Radio 2.
The winner was Glennis Grace with the song “My Impossible Dream”.
