Beatrix ' made a big statement and won the World Class, bringing the more than 2500 people in the hall to tears. Superlatives cannot describe what Beatrix' did this season. Quiet as the wind one moment, followed by deafening waves of applause. The Anne Frank show from Hilversum has written history and became the first ever CGN World Class Champion. On to Dayton!

Beatrix' got the audience off their seats in the afternoon. The people had already come in large numbers to see the Anne Frank program at the afternoon prelims performance. Also at WGI, Beatrix' will now compete in the World Class and this afternoon we got to see why.
