Eurovision’s Greatest Hits takes place in London on 31 March. A host of past Eurovision stars are already signed up to perform at the one-off concert marking 60 years of the contest. And today NRK have announced that Bobbysocks, the 1985 winners, will be joining the party.
The duo of Hanne Krogh and Elisabeth Andreassen earned Norway its first victory with “La Det Swinge (Let It Swing)”. The band has long since disbanded, but the careers of both women have been deeply entwined with the contest. Aside from Bobbysocks, they’ve appeared at Eurovision on five other occasions. Hanne also represented Norway as a soloist 1971 and with Just 4 Fun in 1991. Elisabeth sang for Sweden in 1982 as part of Chips, and for Norway in 1994 and 1996. She’s hoping to return once again this year as one half of the duo Tor & Bettan. These ladies really are dedicated to the Euro-cause!
Are y’all happy with the latest addition to the 60th anniversary celebrations? Who else should be invited back?
